The appearance, personality or family history of a mare are factors to consider when choosing a name for her. Get to know your horse, and use your feelings toward the mare to pick out a name.
The name for your mare should be catchy and unique while also easy for you and others to recall. Many owners choose to name their horse after special markings on their coat. Such names are "Star" and "Oreo." Personality is another factor to consider when fitting your horse with a name; for example, a horse with a gentle disposition could be called "Sugar" or "Sweetie."
