c. = colt

A colt is a young male horse, under the age of four. The term "colt" is often confused with foal, which refers to a horse of either sex under one year of age.
An adult male horse if left intact is called either a "stallion" or a horse (sometimes full horse); if castrated, it is called a gelding. A young male horse is usually called a colt until age four, even if he is gelded.[A rig or ridgling is a horse or colt with a retained testicle or one which has been incompletely castrated.

A young female horse is called a filly until age four, and a mare thereafter.
