Most Loyal Human Friend in the History - Horse

By Treeves Subscribe to RSS | January 4th 2012 | Views:

When you turn the pages of history, you find many instances of horses being an inseparable entity of many civilizations. It is said that History was written on the back of the horses, according to an inscription at The Horse Park in Kentucky. For centuries, horses have developed a special bond with humans who owe this Equus caballus of having served a variety of practical purposes to mankind right from 4000 B.C. An intriguing example of human-animal co-operation is the fascinating partnership between Horse and Rider. As I watched the movie Hidalgo on my Verizon FiOS TV, I was awestruck to see how the horses developed relationships with their masters. Hidalgo is a beautiful painted wild Mustang.

After watching Hidalgo, I desired to watch more movies on horse like Black Beauty, The Derby Stallion, Dark Horse, The Wild Stallion and many other wonderful movies. These remarkable animals share an astonishing trait like the power, and gracefulness, the ability to implicitly trust, and perform complex tasks in tandem with a human partner, working toward a common goal. The rider and horse sync their thinking and know how to communicate, which however takes time for both the horse and rider to learn. A horse could be one of your most loyal, long-term buddies and remember people even after long separation.

A study on horses depict that horses remember people who have trained them or treated them well and these animals understand vocal commands better than expected. As they have an excellent memory, they remember their friendly trainers even after not seeing them for months or years. You can discover the most honorable relationship possible with horses by being compassionate and friendly towards them. Horses display a positive behavior by sniffing and licking as a sign of affiliation with their masters. Horses use their facial expressions to communicate and their moods can be gauged by observing their nostrils, eyes and ears. They can sense the mood of their master and exhibit the same behavior. Horses accept new people more readily, because of a positive memory of humans that they had encountered. A horse is a very sensitive animal and is able to sense the feelings of those nearby particularly hesitation, fear, confidence and anger.

There are more than 350 breeds of ponies and horses that can be found like North American Mustang, Morgan Horse, American Saddlebred, Akhal-Teke from Russia, Black Forest, Arabian, Breton, Egyptian, French Saddlebred, the Welsh Mountain pony, Palomino, The Quarter horse, Australian stock horse, Shetland pony, Gypsy Vanner horse, Falebella of Argentina and many others. Horses are divided into three categories of breeds named Cold bloods, hot bloods and warm bloods. The cold bloods are large gentle horses suitable for slow and heavy work. The Hot bloods are swift, fast and are used for racing. Warm bloods are used for specific riding purposes, equestrian sports and competitions. A cross between a horse and a zebra is known as a zebroid, or zorse. A male horse is known as a stallion, a female horse as a mare and a baby horse is called a foal.

A mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a pony is a full grown small horse. Horses eat short, juicy grass, and hay. Foods like barley, corn, oats and bran are good for working horses and they live for about 25 to 30 years. A horse is able to walk, trot, canter and gallop and sleeps both standing up and lying down and spends more energy while lying down. Mostly used for personal pleasure in competitions, horses are loyal, intelligent and have very long-lasting memories and these hoofed creatures are indeed great friends of humans.
