    .horse gets made fun of. Even by me. Overall, it's bad. Since 2014, it peaked at about 5k regs and has fallen to about half that today. $3.12 at porkbun though, they are so awesome right now! So awesome I couldn't resist! FASTEST.HORSE

    Do you know https://ntldstats.com/tld/horse You need to move the scroll bar on the chart to the left to see inception. All the big drops are totally gone last couple years, so we can assume 2,500 are in strong hands. OFC, I always wonder how many are owned by registry by one means or another. Hard to trust domaining businesses.

    Also, lots .horse websites. Amazon owns one, audible.horse, goes to .com but companies like this have 1000's of good domains that do the exact same thing.

    Although many of us make fun of .horse it can be truthfully said that it has multiple sales in the aftermarket and has never sold for less than $1000! How many extensions can say that that? Also, as mentioned, Amazon use it (and many other new gTLDs) for redirection, to something specific in case of .horse.

    Not long ago I registered my first ever .horse. It is facts.horse. Now I know that semantically it could be better horse facts, if that was available. While it of course would work as a reference site, I also liked it as a playful use in a site that claimed to sell the "true facts". Horses are strong, work hard, just like your horse.facts site works to find the truth for you. My thinking is probably too cute, although there are a few sites using .cat and .dog in playful ways. :xf.wink:

    ps One of my real reasons to get a .horse is I want to be able to say that in 3 different TLDs I want to say I have 33% of the NameBio listed sales, and if I could be the next sale in .horse it would count. (I already have .icu in the bag, and have hopes for .best). I know, my domaining mind is playfully twisted. :xf.cool:

    Here is the email I wrote to sell fastest.horse:

    Hello, I'm James from the USA. I buy, sell and invest in domain names. I have fastest.horse (1000's of searches per month) for $500 paypal (or your suggestion). I imagine you can use this or sell it to someone. I am not around the industry. I just do this branding. It's a great memorable domain, FASTEST.HORSE

    thanks

    PS: Wish I had 123.horse
