Horses cannot be defined within any genus or indeed any phylum or taxonomic rank. This has led scientists to believe that they are either not of this earth (e.g. Aliens) or are man made. Recently the man made theory has been given more credit. In his book "Horses, why do we need them and Where are there beards" Dr Butterfield of Sheffield England stated "Only Cows and Pigs can be said to be related to Horses, and even they are nothing like them whatsoever" he also added "Horses and Pigs taste good, horses taste like shit". Conclusive evidence that they are not required and therefore man made. Although many believe him to be mentally disturbed Dr Butterfield did also come up with this interesting observation "If you take the head of a Donkey the legs of a zebra and the body of a Shetland pony you've basically got a horse". From this observation he also concluded "I think that there are people assembling them out of these component parts and selling them on the black market". Although all of these comments have been shown to be wildly inaccurate, nonsense and down right stupid it is all irrefutably true. No mention of beards was made except in the title of Dr Butterfield’s books. “This is more proof that it’s all true” he pointed out to an angry crowd at the fashionable horse fare shop in savile row in London.

Keith Richards did so much horse in his lifetime that his blood type is China White.
"Quadruped. Graminivorous. Forty teeth, namely twenty-four grinders, four eye-teeth, and twelve incisive. Sheds coat in the spring; in marshy countries, sheds hoofs, too. Hoofs hard, but requiring to be shod with iron. Age known by marks in the mouth."
-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.
A game played to practice basketball. One player attempts a shot. If the shot is successful, the other player must make the same shot in only one attempt, or gain one letter (HORSE). First one to spell "HORSE" loses.
Mom: What did you do after school today?
Zach: Just played a few games of horse with Ryan.
A four legged creature that a lot of people think they know about. The horses are intelligent animals that are scared easily without proper training, leading to several people getting bucked off and embarassed. To control these beasts a lot of people think using harsh equipment is okay when infact they don't understand their horse, leading the horse to be unhappy and dangerous. A good trainer to instruct horseback riding is a rare find and a horse owner who doesn't train their horse properly is quite common. Horses are expensive animals and quite large, do research if you're considering buying one for yourself.
I'm going to ride my horse.
Horses like to neigh.
You're best friend, the only one that understands you when no one else does. They can be the most caring animal out there, and always know how you feel.
