Top Grey Horse Names (Grey And Dapple Grey Horse Names)

Grey and dapple grey horses

We have had a couple beautiful grey horses over the years and the most memorable one was a horse we bought from George Strait named Tex. We now have a boarder named Kit Kat that is a beautiful Dapple Grey Mare horse. It was crazy to watch Tex turn from dark grey to completely white as he aged over the years looking like a completely different horse. They really are amazing and unique creatures. I am excited to have the chance to watch our boarder Kit Kat grow over the years as well. Naming your Grey horse is an amazing opportunity to pick something that clicks for the both of you and throughout your long lived lives.

What Does A Grey Horse Mean Or Symbolize?

Gray or Grey horses have been truly fascinating over the years bringing about Grey only races among other beliefs. A Grey Horse has meant stability, patience and wisdom over the years. If you dream of a gray horse it is said that you are going to have to own up to your actions. 

Gray hair is a sign of the horse aging and also that the pigments never reached the hair for some odd reason. All this beauty doesn’t come without some issues like the fact that 8 out 10 grey horses by the time the reach 15 will develop benign melanomas. Only about 25 percent of the 80% will actually develop further cancer conditions.

Naming your Grey can be hard to do, but we have gone through and came up with many names for all kinds of Grey reasons. Hopefully this list helps you pick it out.
