Men called Brian have been celebrating everywhere this weekend as a police horse keeps the name.
The horse’s name was considered to bee too ‘sissy’ for such a noble beast, towering at 6ft.
The horse is part of Thames Valley Police, who were apparently considering more ‘war-like’ names such as Hercules or Caesar.
This triggered a campaign by Brians over the country to put pressure on them to make to keep their name.
The force took notice of the protests and have since made a U-turn on their decision and the police horse is now called Brian.
One famous Brian, Brian Belo of Big Brother said, “this is a victory for Brians everywhere.”
"I think it's a marvellous name for a horse, it's a friendly name, you would want to be kept safe by a Brian."
