Horse - "what we have in common with horses"

many people ask what we have in common with horses some people say feeling some people say love but do you what i think, i think it how they know if we aree upset or happy or excited theyy can tell its as if they can read your mind. Wr humans know if someone is happy or sad or excited from how they speak or how they act just like horses do now people might think that already or maybe different but thats what i think

Horse - "power"

The horse is one of the large domesticated animal and used as a working animal. They are used to pull carts or plows, plays important role in agriculture, transportation and war. They are specialized for certain tasks like racing, riding, farming etc., lighter horses are specialized for racing or riding in sport events and competitions while heavier horses are specialized for farming. Horse is a herbivorous animal, eats grass and other plant materials. Their life expectancy is 25 to 30 years but few live upto 40 years or beyond.

Most of the time, a horse has "monocular" vision. This means a different image is seen by each eye so that a horse is seeing two different pictures at the same time. A horse can also have "binocular" vision. Binocular vision is when both eyes work together to see one picture (humans have binocular vision). A horse only has binocular vision when it is looking down its nose.
A horse can see better at night than a human. However, it takes a horse's eyes longer to adjust from light to dark and from dark to light than a human's.
Horse's height is measured in units known as "hands." One hand is equal to 4 inches. A horse is usually considered to be 14.2 (14 hands, 2 inches) or taller when mature.
The oldest horse on record is "Old Billy," an English barge horse. He was 62 years old when he died, living from 1760 to 1822.
The record for the highest jump made by a horse is held by a horse named Huaso who jumped 8 feet, 1 and 1/4 inches on February 5th, 1949 in Vina del Mar, Chile. He was ridden by Captain Alberto Larraguibel.
The record for the longest jump over water is held by a horse named Something that jumped 27 feet, 6 and 3/4 inches on April 25, 1975 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was ridden by Andre Ferreira.
Their sense of hearing is good, and the pinna of their ears can rotate a full 360 degrees in order to pick up sound from any direction.
Adult female horses (mares) usually have 36 teeth. A mare may have up to 40 teeth if she happens to have any canine teeth, which is possible but less common. Adult males have between 40 and 44 teeth.
A horse's age can usually be accurately determined by its teeth until the horse is about 9 years old. After that, a horse is known as "smooth mouthed" or "aged" and it becomes far more difficult or impossible to tell its age by its teeth.
The horse is an herbivore, which means it feeds mostly on plants.
Horses cannot breathe through their mouths.
Horses have a prehensile upper lip. Prehensile means "adapted for seizing, grasping, or taking hold of something." Their upper lips are very sensitive and capable of feeling the smallest of differences in objects.
All horses, regardless of when they were actually born, are considered to have a common birthday of January 1. This is one of the reasons most horsemen don't like their foals to be born late in the year: Even if a foal is born on December 31st he or she will have their first birthday the very next day.
A horse is usually not considered to be a "horse" until it is 5 years old. Before that, males are known as colts and females are known as fillies. However, it is still acceptable to call a colt or filly a horse.
