I think Mark said something about chasing after one of the bunch in search of some potassium, but he's been around.

Yes, she does. And I have her Dad who also has 1 blue eye. I have a three year old that has a blue left eye. Her momma is a red and her papa was a double dapple with two blue eyes and is deaf as a log. She has spots down her back all the way to the tip of her tail. Other than that, she is all red. ...

My mother has often used this word throughout my life. While always understanding what it meant, I thought it rather old fashioned.
