Are You a Luxury Horse?

“Jij bent een luxepaardje!”

Trans: “You little luxury horse!” Dutch phrase for chiding someone with expensive tastes (ie having rocket in their cheese sandwich).

Thank you to my linguist/translator friend Nick for this excellent insight into the Dutch psyche and language. I plan to use “luxury horse” on all fitting occasions from now onwards.

 

UPDATE: Thank you to Jane Badger for introducing me to The Horse Luxury Magazine, the magazine for luxury horses worldwide.
