Horses are amazing animals. Here are just a few interesting facts about horses:
- Horses have been a part of human’s societies since domesticated by the Nomads more than 4,000 years ago.
- There is one species of domesticated horse with about 400 breeds.
- Horses hear, see and smell better than humans.
- They have a 360-degree range of vision and their ears can turn toward sounds, assisting their hearing.
- There are many wild or feral herds of horses in North America. These herds are the descendants of once-tamed horses that have roamed free for generations.
