100+ Grey Horse Names: Ideas for Airy & Spirited Horses

Oliver Jones

Adopting a horse is a wonderful experience especially if you have found the one who speaks to your soul! Grey, despite is lack of vibrancy, is truly earthy and whimsical. Horses with monochrome textures and patterns are some of the most beautiful to roam. As grey is not necessarily the coat color, rather the result of an aging coat, or the combination of white fur on black skin – both resulting in stunning and rare looking steeds! 

Now if you’ve been lucky enough to find one that with a stormy grey coat and passionate eyes – well this is the name list for you! We have female and male suggestions, ideas for Dapple Grey Horse, and of course, a few show horse options.
