GENERAL HORSE INFO
They are long legged hoofed mammals. Adult female horses are called mares and adult males are stallions or geldings. Young horses are called foals and can stand and run shortly after birth. They reach full adult size by age five.
A horse has a life span of twenty-five to thirty years. A few will live into their forties, but it is not common. Life span also depends on the breed, the level of health care and living environment. The record is fifty-six years of age.
There are more than three hundred breeds of horses in the world today. The breeds were developed to promote certain traits like size, speed, color or strength. Some were developed for riding and others for heavy farm work.
