When these beauties gallop into your heart, they need the right name.
The purchase or birth of a new horse is a thrilling time for a horse enthusiast, and we put a lot of thought and time into choosing the perfect name. These names don’t have to be long, complicated, or complex, but something that comes from the heart. Many horses are named based on their appearance—we all know a Red, Dusty, or Midnight. Some horses are named based on our favorite characters or places, while others are renamed once we have spent time with them and their personalities emerge. If you’re looking to complete the farm, be sure to check out Our Favorite Pig Names and Our Favorite Pet Chicken Names lists. All these animals are close to our hearts, no matter the size, and we couldn’t imagine life without them. Check out these favorite Southern names for our equine friends, and share with us the name of your horse.
