  • I don't know that I agree that it is an insult. It is a term of abuse for sure. You should not let a horse sweat and not wipe and brush it out before "putting" him up, or turning him out per say. It just means used and abused.

  • Apart of the obvious I'm going to say it reminds me of a horse. I haven't a clue what it's supposed to mean other than a horse. : )

  • Sweetpea is close. It's an old horsebackriding phrase that is used nowadays to describe women who have been around the block one too many times. It refers to a horse being ridden hard that day. But instead of brushing the horse down and taking care of her like you're supposed to, the horse was put back in the stall sweaty and wet. It's not good for the, it describes a woman who doesn't look well taken care of.

  • Yes, inloveagain is right. It is definitely an insult. I think of it meaning a woman who looks like she has been treated roughly (in a sexual way) and looks like it.

  • I honestly have no idea what it means, but I think it's a phrase used to describe an old whore- not sure why...

  • It's referring to a cowboy and his horse. When they would ride them hard the horses would sweat. The cowboy would take the saddle of after riding and the saddle would be put away wet from the sweat.

  • Southernroots is correct on the meaning.

  • So, it's an insult? I've usually just heard guys say it describing a woman
