  1. Hi Mary Ann,

    I know of Sorrel and Broadsword, however Mouse Holing is new to me.

    You seem to have a collection of loosly related military words this week, so I am intrigued as to what book you are currently reading.

    Thanks for sharing,


  2. I knew sorrel referred to horses but I thought it was a type of horse. The other 2 words are new to me.

  3. Yvonne- These words are from The Cats Of Savone by David-Michael Harding, It includes 5 short stories.

    Bermudaonion- I guess it might have two meanings referring to horses.
