HorseIt seems like every stable in America has a resident Stormy, Charlie or Dusty. But which horse names are actually the most common?

Although there’s no official records of horse names as there is with humans, SmartPak Equine has compiled a list of the most common horse names from over 50,000 of their customers. Supplements sold in SmartPak’s come with the horse’s name printed on the package to prevent feeding mistakes, giving them a unique insight into horse monikers from around the country.

The most popular horse names in 2011 were…

  1. Buddy
  2. Jack
  3. Max
  4. Rocky
  5. Beau
  6. Bella
  7. Chance
  8. Blue
  9. Teddy
  10. Cody

“Buddy” is a returning favorite, having topped SmartPak’s 2009 list. In fact, all of the names on this year’s list have appeared in previous lists. “Rocky” and “Cody” have shown staying power, appearing on seven of the annual top ten lists since SmartPak began compiling them in 2001.

Lol. I would think my horse's name Ace would make the list (its such a western type)but it never does. That said I'm rather glad it doesn't. I like being different. I know a Beau, Bella, and Rocky.
