Well, they are cousins. They both eat grass, they both have a single toe, or hoof, on each foot. They both live in herds, and they both give birth to 1 foal (live twins are 1 in 50,000 for horse and I'm sure similar for zebras). And they both have manes and tails, although they look different. And...
168 cm is around average height for an adult woman, so anything  from 14 hands on upward would fit well depending on the horses  build.
Because a horse's skin is either black, grey o r chestnut, that depends on the horse colour, so the horse colour is going to be a mix between them or one of them.
That is exactly why the live in herds. Over millions of years they have developed complex social rules to enable them to prosper in groups. It must be working because they have been around for quite a while.
What any vet or equine specialist makes depends on the location of their practice, if they have partners and other factors. I do know from experience that I payed an equine chiropractor 75 dollars for 15 minutes. This was a few years ago so I don't know what the rate is today. I think you can find a...
DO NOT Cut off the forelock (like my neightbor did)
The process is quite easy. All you must do is eat a rainbow. Now getting to the rainbow is another story.
yes, as long as its old enough.
When we are riding a horse, there are three main things we use to control the horse's motions - our legs, hands, and weight. A horse is trained to feel pressure, and respond to it. If I squeeze the horse with my legs, he tries to move away from the pressure by going forward. If I pull on the reins,...

This is a great question and every horse owner and lover should know the signs of laminitis or sometimes known as founder. At the onset the horse will sometimes shift his weight from one foot to another as if trying to take weight off his feet. Which is exactly what he is doing. His feet will be...

It depends what type of male horse, like e.g. below;     A not neutered adult male horse is called a STALLION, or if  older than 5 years.   A neutered adult male horse is called a GELDING.   A male horse at the age of under 5 years old is called a  COLT.  
No it should not. As long as the eyes are clear and healthy and the horse has good vision his eye color should make no difference at all.
A baby horse has 24 teeth total. 12 incisors and 12 premolars. As adults mares will have 36-40 teeth. Adult males have 40-42.

At the end of a horse race the winner's head crosses the finish line followed immediately by the next horse. This is a very close race. To win by a nose means the same thing, but instead of the head crossing the finish line first it is just a nose.
The British Horse Society was founded in 1947 from combining The Institute of the Horse and Pony Club and National Horse Association of Great Britian. There was no single person that founded the club.
Well, usually they will tell you by pushing on the stall door or gate. But you don't have to worry if they are always in a pasture!! Horses probably dislike being pinned up very much.
  It is a gait, not a gate. The answer is most likely "3-beat".
idiot! that wouldn't work. eel and horse can't do it. grow up
they don't its just good for them
There are several different types of English riding without going over fences. Hunt seat, Equitation, Saddle Seat and Dressage are just a few. Some of these need specific saddles and/or bridles. All are challenging for horse and rider.
If a mustang (horse) gets caught by men usually the men will abuse the horse or they will enter the horse in a rodeo to do the wild horse race or something in a rodeo...If a mustang (horse) gets caught by dogs the dog will maybe (probably) injure the horse/hurt the horse.... =[
  I believe, a finger bone or a hand bone. Either that or fingers are called filanges (phoenetically spelled)
There is no 'one' breed that is more prone to injury. Its what kind of work or sport the horse is doing. Young horses that are asked to do too much too soon is usually where a lot of trouble starts. Young race horses sustain leg injuries. Jumping horses can break down the legs and reining horses...
  No, they do not.
There is no easy way to save for anything. But if you want it bad enough you will make it happen. The best way is to save more than you spend. This takes a bit of discipline and hard work. Do extra chores, odd jobs for neighbors, save Birthday and Christmas money instead of spending on things that...

The life process of a horse is similar to other mammals. The zygote  is the first life process, then an embryo, fetus, colt, and horse.
There are 2 basic types of whips. What is refered to above as a schooling whip is most commonly called a lunge whip.

You sure can! If you don't know how to do it whilst on your horse there are lots of videos.Answer 2:Yes, stirrups can be adjusted from the saddle while riding.1.

I think it depends on what are considered complications. In most cases a horse will complain loudly if breakfast is late. But it does not take long (a few days maybe) for the ribs and hip bones begin to show. The flanks sink in and the neck and back start to thin. When this happens the horse begins...

Depends. If its a riding school pony its not as likely since it gets ridden by so many people, but it is possible. If you go often it can learn to recognise you. When you have your own horse 90% of them will recognise you after a while
Horse power is "Power" it is not speed. You would need more HP to be able to drive a large vehicle at the same speed as a small vehicle.

There are many different kinds of grooming tools and brushes. We will put them in the order that you would use them to groom your horse. Start with a rubber curry and work the hair in small circles from the poll (top of horse's head right behind the ears) down the neck all the way to the tail....
The Lusitano is from Portugal. Spain and Portugal used to share  studbooks, but strife within the industry caused them to split  their studbooks in the 1960s, which resulted in two separate  breeds, the Pura Raza Espanola (more commonly referred to in the  United States as the Andalusian) in...
Horses can eat lots of vegetables including carrots and parsnip. Vegetables should be treated as treats and your horse should not be given too much of them.

There are several different joints in the back leg of the horse. The joint high up near the flank is called the stifle joint. Next will be the hock, the 'backward knee' half way down the leg. At the bottom right above the hoof is the ankle joint.
The horse is probably hurt. It may have something wrong with it's  hoof. Check its hoof and if it doesn't seem to have anything wrong  it may, unfortunately, be crippled. This can happen easily to a  horse. It could also be because its horseshoe fell off or needs to  be replaced or tightened....
Is the horse really white or is it a gray that has faded with age. Gray horses start out life black, bay, even chestnut, but all fade into grays.

Shetlands range in size from a minimum height of about 28 inches to a maximum height of 42 inches at the withers.
I have never heard of a palm rest before but it sounds like it may be a crest release. A crest release is used when jumping a horse. As the horse extends his neck and rounds his back the rider's hands need to move forward with the reins so the horse can stretch his neck and jump correctly. There are...
I think the term is a string. This is also the word a group of poly ponies.
actually, it doesn't always be like this. in Hong Kong, when china sent over the two pandas, they changed the horse carousel into panda carousel. Horses are considered majestic and noble, so that's probably why.

Neither rats nor horses have the ability to regurgitate (throw up). As gross as it sounds, the ability to throw up something bad is a life-saver.

If there is not a lot of grease or additives and spices that could upset his stomach I see no reason why he can't have a cooked potato skin. But remember, everything in moderation. If your horse is not used to eating things like this it's best to keep it to a minimum.
There could be several reasons why a horse has edema, which is a swollen, fluid filled area. An insect bite or sting can cause this kind of reaction. Another possibility would be some kind of trama. If the horse displays no other symptoms like lethargy, refusal to eat, then keep an eye on the...

It is probably best if it's not. Grooming serves several purposes for the horse. It not only makes the horse look and feel better but this is the owner's chance to check the horse's skin and coat looking for any problems or parasites that may exist. A tangled mane can hide skin problems on the neck...

Yes, these two horses will likely get along with each other. The nibbling is mutual grooming, which is used between horses to say "we are friends".
If you mean clipping as we would call shaving on humans, then it is really up to the individual, not all horses are clipped. but if they are clipped, and you want them to stay that way, just clip them when their fur is longer than you want.
Secretariat was the fastest horse that ever lived
It would depend on the size of the human vs. the size of the pony. If the human is too small, and the pony is too large, you could still ride it but getting on its magical horseback would prove quite a task. Alternately, if the human is too large, and the pony is too small, there is a very small...
