Horses All about Horses

A Horse's Body

(Description)You might think a horses body is more complicated than a human's body because they are larger and they weigh more but there body system is very easy to learn and remember. The spot between the ears is the pole and the top of their bottom is the dock. The easiest to remember is the belly which is known as the barrel. Those are the most simplest parts of the horse's body. To remember the belly, or barrel I think of a barrel which since the horse's belly is so large it looks like a barrel. Some stables have have horses who have metal hoofs. They should get there hooves changed about every two weeks but if the hoof becomes loose or it breaks you should get it fixed right away.

How do clear foot fungus?

(Problem and Solution)Did you know horses can get foot fungus? They occur in the hoof wall and the frog. Infection in the wall is related to as white line disease. To treat these you could use White Lightning or Clean Trax. Others like Lysol and Borax can be used but I prefer Clean Trax and White Lightning. You will have to keep it constitnet or it will be a waste. After the fungus has been removed ,make sure to pick your horses hoof out regularly and after you ride.

A Horse's Life Cycle

(Sequence)A horses life cycle an be broken down into four phases. Birth, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. A pregnancy for a horse will last 11-12 months. When a baby horse is born it is called a foal. After about a year of being a foal the foal turns into a colt. Then after a few years the colt will become an adult and earn the name of a horse. Soon after that the horse will find a mate and the cycle starts over again. The common life span of a horse is 25-30 years.
