The Clydesdale horse is famous for its strength.  Owners frequently gave their horses strong names  inspired by biblical characters, roman warriors and greek gods, such as hercules Samson and Achilles.  I am inspired by the popular horse name Spartacus, named after the famous roman gladiator and today a distinguished drumhorse in the household cavalry.
