    HORSE Senses

    The senses of a horse are generally superior to those of a human. As prey animals, they must be aware of their surroundings at all times. They have very large eyes and the side positioning of the eyes gives the horse a wide field of vision of about 350. Horses have excellent day and night vision, but studies indicate that they have two-color, or dichromatic vision; their color vision is somewhat like red-green color blindness in humans. This means that certain colors, especially red and related colors, appear more green.

    I love spending time with the horses... they are fantastic for alertness. When we are out back with the horses we can't tell when anyone drives in...but the horses always perk up and stare...its like a doorbell only better!!! Gosh I love my horses!
