    I'm sure a glossary would be helpful to most everyone.

    What is a Project Horse?

    So no one knows ?

    A project horse is nothing more than a horse that needs some work. It can be anything from an unstarted, unhandled youngster up to a horse that has good basic training but hasn't started work in his chosen field. More often than not it is code for a horse that hasn't had much of anything done to them.

    I have not read all post so this may have been stated.

    There is a wonderful book called "The Horseman's Dictionary" by Stephen D. Price. It doesnt contain All equine terminology but it does contain a plethera of common and uncommon words. A book worth for beginners to advanced.

    Here is a website with photos of a dissection.
    Necropsy: Equine Head Dissection - Cristy Cumberworth Equine Photography

    I found the photos interesting.

    I'm currently taking an Equine Behavior class and some other myths we talked about were:

    -Horses do not think
    -Horses have no sense of concept
    -Horses are colorblind
    -Horses can not transfer information from one eye to the other
    These are not true.

    Another interesting fact is that horses can actually see better in overcast conditions rather than sunny. This has to do with the high proportion of rods and cones 20:1. And they have excellent night vision.

    I enjoy this class haha
    In regards to the above myths. I have heard more than I care to ever hear in my life.
    *THey think but not as near complexed as humans. They definitely don't contemplate in ruining your day on purpose. Cats on the other hand.......I wonder.
    *No concept? Yet they learn by grasping concepts (esp repeated concepts.) again not as complexed as human concepts.
    *I have heard time and time again that horses are colourblind and science has proven that to be untrue time and time again.

    About transfering info from one eye to another are you referring to monocular vision to binocular vision???? Please explain further.

    Science has gained by leaps and bounds when it comes to our animal brother/sisters which I am glad for to many myths exsist that need to die and rightfully so.

    Oh in regards to DH I have understood it to be Dill Hole. Another word for idiot or moron. Rather crude.
