    John's slightly awkward response was that he was given the nickname because he ate like a horse. I don't think anyone believed that.
    I've heard him say it's because he likes carrots.

    I've heard others say it's because he was such a prodigious long kick, ie kicking like a horse.

    There's only one reason a guy is nicknamed Horse in a sports team.
