6 Amazing Horse Facts You MUST Know.

This is my very first article on BYH. I write a lot of articles on BYC, but the layout is much different, so I'm still learning my way around this site.
Ok so, straight to the point, 6 Amazing Horse Facts You MUST Know!

#1
Horses can se better than humans at night, BUT it takes longer for their eyes to adjust from dark to light and likewise. Keep this in mind when you transfer a horse from a dark area such as an indoor arena, stall, or trailer to a pasture or other place in bright light and when you go from a dark place to a place with bright light.

#2
Male horses have more teeth than female horses. I'm not completely convinced that this one is true, but according to what I read, male horses have 40 teeth, while females have only 36 (not counting "wolf" teeth).

#3
A horse's teeth take up more room in their head than their brains. Don't repeat that to someone who already thinks horses have no brains! :D

#4
An adult horse's brain weighs less than a human's brain (again, don't repeat this to someone who already thinks horses have no brains!).


#5
Horses are NOT color blind, although it is easier for them to distinguish yellows, greens, and blues than purples and violets. An example is if you hold up a red apple and a green apple beside each other in front of the horse. He won't be able to tell the difference.

And last, but not least,

#6

Horses have the LARGEST eyes of any land mammal!


Thanks for reading!
