Horse - "capall," assuming you want just plain horse and not mare or stallion or anything more specific. Alternatively, an older, literary word is "each", not pronounced like it looks in English.

Lover - "leannán." You could also use "leath leapa," which means "half a bed" and refers to the person who occupies it!

"Stail" is the word for stallion. It's pronounced "sthal" to rhyme with hal (not hall).
