Mongolia, another favorite horse of Washington’s, was a white Arab.

A few of his other horses were Samson, Steady, Leonidas, and Traveller, all good and hearty horse names.

Washington, however, wasn’t so straight-faced when it came to his hounds.

Some of his dogs’ names were Truelove, Drunkard, Tipler, Sweetlips, Mopsey, Madam Moose, Taster, Searcher, Cloe, Scentwell, Dabster, Forester, Captain, Lady, Rover, Vulcan, and Droner.
