A female horse is commonly known as a Mare.

Mares are wonderful, i have a gelding myself (de-sexed stallion (male horse) but my friend has her mare sharing our paddock. She is lovely BUT they do have their own cycle which causes them to be more aggressive, agitated, feisty and grumpy towards people and other horses.

Mares were known to be wiling to sacrifice another horse from the herd to save themselves from any danger, whilst a stallion or gelding would sacrifice itself to save another.

Good luck!
