: : What is the meaning and orgin of Hot To Trot? I would assume that it is somehow related to a horse but I really don't know for sure. Thanks.

hot to trot 1. Ready and willing, eager. For example, "We should let them start putting up posters; they're hot to trod." 2. Sexually avid,lascivious, as in "He's hot to trod and asked her out as soon as he met her." Both slangy usages allude to a horse eager to get going.
