Grey Horse Names for Mares & Stallions

Grey horses are quite interesting mainly because they aren’t born grey but with a darker shade that later in lightens. They undergo an immense change from birth to around 10 years old which makes the naming of the horse not just difficult, but unpredictable.

Unisex, female or male grey horse names can be derived from the shades they have from dapple gray, flea-bitten gray, iron-gray, and rose gray. They can be named after grey looking items and things like mist, clouds, white names, silver colors, and others. What’s most fascinating about the grey horse is that other horses have streaks and patterns hence, names are singularly used for each specific horse.
