horsesThe first domestication of the horses was in the steppes of central Asia between 3000 and 4000 B.C. Horses and humans have an ancient relationship. These first animals were kept for meat and milk. As early man became more mobile undoubtedly horses began to be used as pack animals.

Animals remained essential to many human societies until the advent of the engine. Horses still hold a place of honor in many cultures, often linked to heroic exploits in war. There is only one species of domestic horse, but around 400 different breeds that specialize in everything from pulling wagons to racing. All horses are grazers.

Horses are members of Equus ferus caballus that generally mature to be 58 inches (150 cm) or taller, but many breed registries do accept animals under this height and classify them as “horses,” as horse characteristics include factors other than height.

While most horses are domestic, others remain wild. Feral horses are the descendents of once-tame animals that have run free for generations. Groups of such horses can be found in many places around the world, mdpv. Free-roaming North American mustangs, for example, are the descendents of horses brought by Europeans more than 400 years ago.
