This reminds me of my favorite horse story, and has not one darn thing to do
with writing, so bail out now if not interested!

Two men were discussing a pair of horses;

1st: You know, these are twin horses, and I can never tell them apart. I
want to give them names, but I can't tell which one is which!

2nd: Well, trim the mane of one, then you can tell.

1st: I tried that, but the darn thing grows back!

2nd: Measure them, then you can tell.

1st: Tried that too - they're both fifteen hands high!

2nd: Okay...measure how long they are, they can't be the same length!

So they did, and sure enough one horse was five inches longer than the

1st: Well I'll be - I always though that white horse was bigger than the
black one!

Sorry - couldn't resist - been that kind of day!
