Random facts on our loved ones, Known to others as horses lol

Just for fun, I came across some facts and thought that I would share and see who had heard any of them maybe even have some of there own :)

*Colts are carried on average about 4 days longer than fillies

*The average horse's heart weighs approximately 9 or 10 pounds.

*HIPPOPHOBIA or EQUINOPHOBIA = Fear of horses.

*All thoroughbreds are descendants of three Arabian stallions that were brought to England in the late 1600s and early 1700s and bred with native European mares.

*
There are basically four breeds of Horses: (Coldbloods, Hotbloods, Warmbloods and Ponies)
Coldbloods: These are drafts and larger horses which come from cool, damp weather where rich grazing is produced. This breed is large and strong. (Percheron, Clydesdale, Friesian, Belgian Draft)
Hotbloods: The Arab is a good example of a Hotblood who usually come from the Middle East and North Africa. These area have poor grazing and extreme climate which produced a light and fast horse. (Arabs, Barb and Thoroughbreds)
Warmbloods: These were produced by crossing hotbloods and coldbloods. These are considered to be stronger and faster and more flexible working breeds.(Warmblood, Hanoverian, Trakehner, Morgan, Quarter, Appaloosa, Foxtrotter and Mustang)
Pony: Smaller horses which are normally not taller then 14.2 hands (57 inches). Ponies tend to have shorter legs and be stronger in relation to their size. They are considered to be sturdy, tough and independent. (Shetland, Welsh, Haflinger and Fell)


*Horses have the largest eyes of any land animal.

*A horse uses more energy while lying down than it does while it is standing up.


So have any of these facts surprised you?? Lol

That's not quite true, check this link out! (I'm too lazy to type it out myself, LOL!) Sonesta Farms - What is a Warmblood?

There's cold and hot influences, but it's not direct hot bred to cold.
