250+ Funny Horse Names: Mane Attraction, Hay Fever & Neighbraska

Funny Horse Names

Looking for a funny name for your horse?

Then you’ve come to the right paddock!

Here we have a list of over 250 Funny Horse Names for your perusal, and hopefully for some giggles and laughs too!

Horses can be funny creatures – sometimes they make a face that looks like they’re laughing, when actually they’re just sniffing the air.

Also, sometimes it sounds like a horse is sniggering, but actually they are just breathing air through their nose.

In our list of 250 funny names we cover:

But we start with advice on choosing the best name…

How To Choose the Best Funny Horse Name

Dog Riding a Horse

Choosing a name for any pet can be difficult, and whilst we’ve given you hundreds to choose from, sometimes it can be hard to know where to start.

Here are four of tips that might be helpful when picking from funny horse names:

  1. Make Sure It’s Not Embarrassing

Horses can often live to be 30 years old, (it is reported that one even lived to be 62 in the nineteenth century).

Choosing a horse name that will remain fun, fresh and not at all embarrassing after all those years is sometimes a challenge.

Especially when choosing a funny name, keep in mind whether it will still be funny in years to come, or whether it is only smile-worthy at the current moment in time.

This is even more important if the filly or colt will become a racehorse in the future, as there will be hundreds of people shouting this name loud and clear for all to hear.

  1. Make Sure It’s Unique

Another important thing to remember is that you want your horse’s name to be special.

It certainly cannot have the same name as every other horse in the paddock, and if you are planning on racing your horse, then it should be something that sticks in people’s minds as they are betting.

Pick something memorable and special to you – if it has a distinct meaning then that’s even better.

Horses have evolved to become the large, majestic creatures we currently know them as.

The ancestor of the horse may have only been as big as a large dog, and perhaps not something you could use as transport!

Over thousands of years of selective breeding and evolution, horses became larger and closer to the marvellous working animals we know and love today.
