horse/random facts
 
hhahahah this thread is just a fun little thing I felt like doing. It could be considered a game if you want, but all you do is tell facts you know, it could be horse related or random. Who knows? We might learn something! Even the most obvious!
I'll start:

-The sun will come up tomorrow
-Arabians are known for stamina and speed
-I know many (if not all) are horse freaks on here!
- I have 5 horses at the moment
-My best friend just joined on Horse Forum

whose next?????:lol:

- horses do not have nerve endings underneath their manes that sense "hair pull pain" like humans do. At best they feel a bit of pressure, which is why it doesn't "hurt" them to hold onto their manes!

Horses eyes do not focus the same way that ours do. In order for them to see something far away they must lift their noses and look down the nose, sort of. To see something up close, they must lower their heads. Optimal viewing angle is about 35 degrees down from true horizontal; about the angle a race horse holds his head at a dead gallop. Also, their eyes, though excellent at night vision, are slower than ours to adjust to sudden changes in light level. Thus, when you come out of the woods into a bright meadow, YOU can see sooner than your horse can.
