Today, we’ll find out how much a horse costs in Kenyan Shillings, how fast it can run in kilometers per hour, and some other interesting facts you probably didn’t know about horses.
To begin, a horse is a hoofed, odd-toed, tamed mammal. The taxonomic family to which it belongs includes only two living subspecies. Over 45–55 million years, the horse has gone through a series of evolutionary changes that have transformed it from a little multi-toed species into the enormous single-toed animal it is today.
Horses were first domesticated by humans in approximately 4000 BC, and by 3000 BC, it is believed that this practice had spread throughout the world.
Running is a natural ability for most horses, which helps them get away from danger fast. As an added bonus, they are exceptionally well-balanced.
Younger horses, in particular, have a much higher propensity to sleep than older horses of the same age, and they can sleep either standing up or lying down.
Mares is the common name for female horses. They have a typical gestation period of 11 months. A foal is a newborn horse that can stand and run.
