Yes, they called άλογα because they can't speak. In case you wonder why the horse took that name but the "can't talk" fact applies to all animals, it is because the word άλογο was first a military term (the other word for horse is ίππος) because in ancient times the military consisted of horses (the non-talking part of the military "το άλογο μέρος του στρατού") and the men (the talking part "το έλλογο μέρος του στρατού").
