Without spoiling anything.....why is it that at the end of the story (epilogue) I can't rename my horse?  The game automatically named my thoroughbred "Rachel" and won't let me rename her at the stable? Is this a glitch or do I have to steal/buy my own in order to name/rename these horses?

It seems to me that the horse already had that name before the game "gave" it to you. So it appears to be one horse you cannot rename as it wants to force that name.

In the end I bought a horse I liked better anyway.

Yea, I'm gonna get the Arabian that's purchasable in Blackwater. And someone said there's an even better one... a Missouri Fox Trotter you can steal in St. Denis? Just bothers me that I can't rename this other horse...now that I've grown attached to it!

Here we are comparing horses like cars in GTAV for speed and acceleration. LOL!

Huh? You can buy one Missouri Foxtrotter in the Stable close to Emerald Ranch and the other one (the one you probably mean) in Blackwater. My favorite right now is the brown Turkoman. In sunlight, this horse simply looks spectacular. Plus, handles better and doesn't look as whacky as the Arabians.

Hmm, I'll have to compare stats...the youtube video said that the horse in St. Denis has a golden colored coat and has the highest stats. I'd rather go buy it myself than step foot in St. Denis....can't stand that place!  But, I think they might have made horses have different stats even though they are the same breed. Will check it out....thanks!

Missouri Foxtrotters and Turkomans have the same stats, no matter the color. Only the Arabians vary from coat to coat.

Sky and Duke for the first two, the Shire being the latter (dunno if first horses are set in stone or random; assuming former).
One is a Flaxen Chestnut something named Copper. A Dapple Gray named Frost (coloring makes me think of snow).
Can't recall my last one (sold Sky  :'( ). Copper and the last one were brought in at basically the same time.
If I can figure out how to put ps4 screenshots on here, may share them later. Plus the name that escapes me frustratingly

Well I don't have to worry about my Thoroughbred having a name I don't want..... :'(.......was up on the train tracks north of Armadillo trying to make my way through the tunnel when along comes the train.....I made it out but the horse didn't make it and I didn't have any horse reviver left.

RIP Rachel.

Bad part is that I'm now trying to find another Thoroughbred with the same colored coat! LOL! She was black with a reddish tint and white markings on front feet and face. Anybody see a horse like that anywhere?

So I named the horse "Jordan"

Fergi ... I can't believe you renamed "Buell" ...

Show content for Hiden:
especially since Hamish asked us with his dying breath to take care of him ...

and his coat is called Cremello Gold ...

My current horse is the black Arabian with white streaks on it's nose called "Coal"

My favorite horse was "Coral" I pulled a Rick Grimes and would be yelling "Coral, Coral, COOORRALLLLL!" in my gaming room. I know it's an old joke, but still funny to me. Coral fell victim to the jaws of the legendary bull gator in the Bayou. That croc really gave me some trouble.

I finally found both horses just outside St. Denis....yes, the stats are very similar to both. But, I chose the Foxtrotter because the speed stats were actually a little better than the Turkoman...and the color was nicer (champagne coat). And I think that the Foxtrotter was the same kind of horse Marston had during the story.

I sold my Walker and broke a blood bay Thoroughbred (male).  Named him Bart.  It just seemed to fit.
This sure beats milking cows!

Does anyone else have a problem with their horse shitting all over the place almost constantly?

I hitch my horse and it shits. I go to skin an animal, guess what... More shit. I call my horse from a long range and here we go again, it starts laying beans like no tomorrow.

It's just a constant shit with the crazy animal.

Anywhere I can buy my horse some pepto bismol?

Yup, I think they over-did it with the horse poop....and farting! I am beginning to think that I'm not feeding my horse a proper diet!  The thing that I hate the most is when he/she poops just as I am trying to take a photo.

Speaking of horses, does anyone have any ideas on how to easily bring a tamed horse home?
I broke a horse but didn't want to leave mine behind.  So, I lassoed the new horse, but found no way to easily bring him along, I had to keep the lasso in hand the entire time.

Would I have been better off riding the new horse back to the stables and whistling for my regular horse the whole way?  Or would my horse follow us?  Or is there a way to tie the rope to my saddle?

Just ride it. Patting it as you go and feeding/grooming it will help increase the bond to level 2 and it will then follow if you whistle. Your main horse should already be able to follow if you whistle for it, but watch the minimap; occasionally a following horse will get stuck and you can lose them that way. If you don't want to stable it, you can just take it back to camp and it will stay as your temporary horse until you get another, or put a saddle on it. Then it becomes your main horse.

Tip, you can hold the analog stick down to bond with horse rather than constantly spam it.

Also holding both triggers with the lasso gives a bigger throwing range.

Giddy up ya damn nag.  'Dam nag' it shall be post game.

Turkoman too skittish I'm.  Missouri fox trotter in blackwater stable, ooh boy, that is a fine ride.  Little obnoxious looking but it lives up to the it.
