Did you know? Little-known facts about horses

Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary

Did you know...

... that a galloping horse must breath with every stride, due to the movement of the gut contents pushing forward and back on the diaphragm?

Did you know... 

...that an "easy keeper" is a term used to describe a horse, pony, or other equine that can live on relatively little food?

Did you know...

...that because the horse does not have a gall bladder, they can only have up to 20% fat as part of their equine nutrition?

Did you know...

...the equine eye is the largest of any land mammal?  Its visual abilities are directly related to the animal's behavior and the fact that the horse is a flight animal.

Did you know...

...gestation period for horses is 11 months?
