A height of a horse can be measured with the hand, where each hand equals four inches. If you want to know how old a horse is, all you need to do is to count its teeth. An average horse’s head weighs 11.84 pounds. 10 Pounds is the weight of a horse’s heart. A horse is able to drink 10 gallons of water per day. Horses use their facial expressions to communicate. Their moods can be gauged with the help of their nostrils, eyes and ears. Horses spend more energy lying down. The hoof of a horse is like a fingernail; it keeps on growing and needs to be clipped. Any kind of mark, which appears on the forehead of a horse, is called a star, irrespective of whether it resembles one! A horse is able to walk, trot, canter and gallop. Horses usually live for around 20 to 25 years. Some of them can live up to 5 years more. In most cases, the foal is born at night, away from danger and prying eyes. After being born, it only takes a foal about 1-2 hours to stand up and walk. Foals are fully grown by 3-4 years of age. Horses eat short, juicy grass, and hay. Foods like barley, maize, oats and bran are good for working horses. Horses are either a mixture of colors or the same color all over. Horses are usually, black, brown, cream or gray in color. A horse has two blind spots; one is located directly in front of them while the other is located directly behind. A breed of horses called Akhal-Teke from Russia can go for days without water or food. One of the few breeds of horses that live in North America are called Mustangs. “Old Billy,” was the oldest recorded horse who lived to be 62 years. Falebella of Argentina, is the smallest breed. “Little Pumpkin,” is the smallest pony in history, it stood 14 inches and weighed 20 lbs. “Samson,” was the tallest horse recorded.

There’s approximately 1 gillion “facts” about horses…that includes the facts you can find in an encyclopiedia, and the “facts” you can get by someone who’s spent their lives with them…

Horses are the only animal who, when in conjuction with mankind have to give up many of their natural insticts for survival…a man gets on their back, as prey animals, instict tells them nothing should EVER be on their back (think cougars, bears, etc)…As prey animals, their instinct is to keep their feet free at all times…yet man holds them, puts shoes on, trims, etc…As prey animals, their heads need to be free to see all around them, yet they give up that freedom to be ridden with a bridle and bit…they have to put all their insticts aside, and trust mankind to watch out for them…

They’re pretty darn amazing animals.
