What is a horse's dam?

The sire is the father. The dam is, obviously, the mother. (Again, an example of the way horse people will use terms that would be archaic if used of people - worth considering when worldbuilding).

And yes, we do use grandsire and grandam, but in specific ways I'll talk about tomorrow - horse pedigrees are full of interesting terms.
