“unidentified”: Currently, California, Indiana, and Minnesota redact the names of their dead, citing “confidentiality.” Any identifications from those states come via other channels.

“yet-to-be-named”: The horse had not yet been given a name.

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this list. That said, my information is only as good as the information I receive. If it can be proved that a horse appears in error, I will dutifully remove.
