Subject: Alice the camel??

(Sorry, still one of my favourite jokes.)

It looks like when I wrote Alice, she treated the Herd as an extended family, and didn't use names but rather descriptions (Delroch is only named when she's actually speaking for roman's benefit). So the natural names she'd give would be ossified descriptors - which indeed 'Little Red' is.

Of course, if the sorrel was irritating, she might wind up as "Rossarn" - "Red pebble", as in "stuck in my hoof and always bothering me". But I'm sure she wouldn't deserve that. ^_^
