Most horses live for between 18 and 25 years. Horses that are exercised hard and strained when they are young often wear and die faster, around age 13 or 14. This is only likely to be the case with an Arabian if it was raised in Arabia or parts of Africa where horses are ridden and raced as yearlings. Horses will live longer if they are well cared for and given good nutrition.

Why aren't we horses enemies?

In the wild horses live in herds so they have a pack and they are like a little family. But in captivity horses look at their owners as a part of there herd especially if they don't live with other horses, so they wouldn't want to be enimes with the people that feed them care for them and are part of their herd. Horses are only really 'enimes' with humans if they have been treated badly but they can over come that if they are given time and care.
