If you have been to my blog in the past, you may know that my favourite animal is horses! If you don’t, you know now!
Horses originated from Central Asia and they date to approximately 4,500 BC. You would measure them in hands which is around 10.16 centimeters.
In the past, they were used for war and doing the job of tractors. Today, we rarely use them to carry a kart but sometimes, we do. We also ride and use in competitions. They are very useful and beautiful animals. Wild horses generally gather in groups of 3 to 20. A stallion (mature male) leads the group.
Horses feed on mostly grass and a lot of water. Like us, they need water to keep hydrated. Apples and carrots are usually used as a treat, they also eat barley. Other foods that horses eat are: Bran, chaff, chad liver oil, eggs, horse nuts or mixes and lots, lots, LOTS more!
