A mare is an adult female horse or other equine. In most cases, a mare is a female horse over the age of three, and a filly is a female horse three and younger. In Thoroughbred horse racing, a mare is defined as a female horse more than four years old.
An adult male horse, if left intact, is called either a "stallion" if used for breeding, or a horse (sometimes full horse); if castrated, it is called a gelding. In some cases, particularly informal nomenclature, a gelding under four years is still called a colt.
4 The reproductive anatomy of the male horse includes: The testicles and associated ducts. There are two testicles, located in the scrotum. There are two epididymides and spermatic cords, two vas deferens and two ampullae, which empty into the pelvic urethra.

A female horse undergoes the same cycle over a slightly different time period. But instead of menstruating, a mare will reabsorb the uterine lining as it breaks down.

Donkeys are a separate species from horses. A mule, Matthews says, is a hybrid – half horse and half donkey. Donkeys evolved into their own species.
A mule is the offspring of a male donkey (called a jack) and a female horse (called a mare). Mules inherit desirable qualities from both donkeys and horses; from the horse they inherit strength and stamina, and like donkeys, mules are generally patient, sure-footed, intelligent and have an even temper.
A mature male horse is called a stallion, the female a mare. A stallion used for breeding is known as a stud. A castrated stallion is commonly called a gelding. Formerly, stallions were employed as riding horses, while mares were kept for breeding purposes only.
