-quote from Hard Times by Charles Dickens.

Horses are described in numerous ways; breeds, types, 'bloods' and purposes.
Breeds of horse are distinct genetic entities. Morgan horses will produce
further Morgans, however if two cobs are bred together they may not necessarily produce further cob type horses. They may produce horses of a variety of types dependent upon the various breeds that produced the two cobs in the first place.

Horses are mainly used for hobby purposes, ie. riding (obstagles and dressage) and driving. In some places (Finland and sweden for example) some equine schools use horses for work too.

Communication skills are known to be highly developed in horses, but they are unable to speak to us in the same way that human beings do. It is vital that horse owners understand the fundamentals of horse care and horsemanship. A rider MUST know his/her horse well before attempting anything more than walking with it. Horses are very intelligent and have an excellent memory. You mistreat a horse once, he might kick you in the head 5 years later :)
Nice horse you got there, how old is he?

Who the fuck let that horse out of the paddock?
Saddle my horse, I'm going after it.

Another word for rage, wrath and anger.
Oh my god, your mom was really furious when she found that packet of Cleanex.

The fury of a large-sized hamster sounds small but can be quite lethal to your fingers.
