Think Hard Before Naming Your New Horse

Naming a new pet is a necessary part of bonding with any animal. Horses, however, will become a bigger part of your family than many may realize. If you're buying a horse, then you have high hopes of that animal taking on a heavy workload, which, of course, was what they are bred for. You will become much closer to it than you ever expected, and if you treat your horse well, it will treat you well. Take your time to come up with a good name that you and your trusty new steed will share for a lifetime.

The list below is a good starting point for someone looking to give their new horse a name, but feel free to mix and match the names to come up with new ones. Even if you don't find a name that strikes your fancy, the list may give you inspiration into coming up with a nice name on your own. Thanks for visiting and good luck finding a name for a life long new friend.

Other Tips To Help Name Your Horse

  • The color of your steed can be added to another word to make a memorable name for your new pet. Maybe you can choose lesser known words to replace more popular ones; instead of red, maybe you could use crimson.
  • Different horses have different temperaments or moods which can be used to make names even more personal to your new foal. The key is to observe how they interact with fellow horses and people for a few days before deciding what kind of temperament they have.
  • Don't rush to give your new pet a name. While it is important to come up with a name, feel free to take a day or two to mull over the decision. Interacting with your horse is more important than naming it at first anyways. Positive interaction can build a strong and trusting relationship.
  • Use the name of the horse's breed in conjunction with other words to come up with a cool name. For example, if you own a Banker horse, which is a breed of wild horses living on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, you could come up with a name like "Banker's Hours".

Name Your Horse After A Stooge

  • Moe could be a horse that is a bit of a bully, but always loyal to his family.
  • Curly could be one that is a bit wild and will show off from time to time.
  • A steed named after Shemp could have a personality that is a bit timid but eventually comes through in the end.
  • Save Larry for horses that have some wild hair or tail wagging going on.

3. Horses will not lie down all at once because at least one will act as a look out to alert the others of potential danger approaching.

4. Newborn horses (foals) can run within hours after birth.

5. Horses have the largest eyes of any land mammal.
