I have always liked military-style names for male horses: Brigadier, Trooper, Scout, Soldier, General, etc. Funny how my male equids have not had any of these names! (Goose, Blackjack, Tom Terrific and Dusty. Dusty would have been Brigadier or Trooper if he hadn't already had his own name for 11 years...)

For females, not so sure. I had a paint pony mule I called Sassafras, or Sassy for short. I liked that a lot, especially since her coat was mostly the reddish-brown sassafras color.

lol about the mule name! My donkey's nickname is "Hotay," as in "Donkey Hotay"... (say it and listen to how it sounds)

He already had a name he knew, too, so I couldn't officially change it.

My daughter rides a horse in her lessons named Trooper , I love him! She also rides a horse named Diamond
Some of my all time fave have been Liza, Freckles , Sunny, also Stormy and Frosty.
Our horses are named after the chac. On MASH Radar O'Reilly and Lt. Col. Henry Blake. My husband is a big fan of that show and since Radar was already named Radar(On the Radar) and Henry was (O'Henry) we just added to it.

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

I love the name Regalo. It means 'gift' in Italian. I like names that have a meaning to them, something different. I love my horse's name, even though it doesn't mean anything, his name is Aramis (nickname Arie for short).

I like the name Fritz, a barn that I used to ride at had a clyde stud by that name. They also had a pretty little palomino arab mare named Lena, which I love.

I use to ride a palomino quarter horse mare named In The Nude. That got a lot of chuckles when it was announced over the loud speakers.

My QH mare has been unofficially renamed Malibu Barbie which I love. My TB's name is Rocket, which suits him well. My BO got a new mare named China which I think is a cute name.

Where I take lessons has some interesting names for the lesson horses like Bambie and T-Bone.

I really like the name trooper that some of you mentioned

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.
