I checked both spanishdict.com and the RAE dictionary and I don't see anywhere that it can mean great.

SpanishDict.com seems to indicate no, this is not correct.

There IS the "report a problem: hints on hover are incorrect" option.

OK I went back to my "word" list at the top of the page. Then I put the cursor on the word caballo and it showed: horse, fantastic and great. Then I noticed a down arrow. Then all these other words were listed. Obviously I am missing something. I am new to Duolingo. What are these words listed for under Caballo? Thanks everyone for the help and the patience.

They are hints that may or may not be accurate for the context of the sentence (or downright incorrect). You can report those. After submitting an answer, there is a button at the bottom left corner where you can report dictionary hints.

Caballo is usually Horse, but it has a couple of other meanings

Use a companion site while studying on DL. I recommend the one I linked you to. It's translators are pretty accurate and the verb section is phenomenal.
