] My other question is, if you were a gentleman of that era, what names would you prefer for your horse (if at all) and dogs. I just can't imagine Mr. Darcy riding a "Lady" nor calling for "Sparky" to find the fox.
George Stubbs (1724-1806) and John Frederick Herring (1795-1865) were artists who specialized in painting people's horses. You might try hitting the library to see if you can find any of their paintings, as the titles may include genuine horse names ("Sir Somebody's Bay, Whatsit").
