The Horse
By: Ashleigh Kennedy
The Features

A horse is a mammal (warm blooded). They have a beautiful mane that's glossy in the sun. If it is taken care of correctly, the tail is the same way. Horses have 4 hooves they use to fight predator's.On the inside of the hoof near the middle their is a sensitive part called a frog, and lines near the top called

white lines.

Horses are herbivores (plant eaters). They eat grass, hay, concentrate mixes, salt, minerals, shrubs, weeds, peas, beans, lentils, alfalfa, carob, and peanuts. Horses like to eat some fruits like apples. They also eat root vegetables and treats. Most wild horses depend on their herds to find food, but pet horses depend on humans.
What A Horse Eats And How A Horse Gets Its Food.
A pet horse generally lives in a sheltered stable with separated stalls and a fenced in grassy pasture, meadow, or field with plenty of food and water. A wild horse generally lives where it wants to but usually stays in grassy plains where plenty of water is nearby.
Where A Horse Lives
A horses predators are mountain lions, wolves, coyotes, bears, and even humans! Horses can protect themselves with their sharp hooves. They kick and strike their enemies. A horses teeth are also used in battle. They are prey animals and survive through remaining alert to their surroundings and running away if they notice danger. To help them get away they have to be very fast.
How A Wild Horse Survives And Its Predators
Horses need to go into a field every day to graze on grass and walk, trot (jog), canter (run), and gallop (sprint) around to get exercise. You need to feed your horse nutritious food like grass, hay, and oats. Every once in a while to keep your horses trusting you, you can give them carrots, apples, sugar cubes, and treats. You need to brush your horse to keep its coat shiny, clean, and healthy. You need to pick your horses hooves also.
