How do Horses Adapt in Extreme Heat/cold?
How do Horses Adapt?
Horses adapt by changing behavior traits and
sleep standing. Horses tend to sleep standing
in unnatural environments because it is easier to escape from predators and they also have weak bones so if they lay for to long they may injure themselves.
What Happens to Horses in Cold?
Horses grow thicker coats in winter then they have in summer. They are much better adapted then us, we pile our clothes on they get thicker coats. After winter they will shed like crazy if they are pets or wild they both types get thick coats in winter.
How do Horses Adapt to Summer?
Horses lose their
coats in summer.
After winter they
are usually big,
fat and thick coats.
We are nothing like
them we don't
shed. Horses
need a lot of
fresh water for
their body it
helps them just
like us . Horses
sweat a lot in summer that is also why they need water. They also put mud on themselves to cool down and so the flies don't bug them as much
Can Horses Adapt Anywhere?
No it is very hard to adapt it is like moving to a new house, how long does it take for you to adjust? In certain places you need a certain horse....................
Arctic horse
like an Arctic horse........
or a desert horse................
or maybe even a grassland horse................
It takes a long time for a horse to adjust.
it does take time
but most horses can adapt only to their homelands.
horses can not adapt everywhere but they can adapt in their own land the environment they were made in!!!!!!!!
Can a Horse Tell the Weather?
Yes and no. Horses grow hair in winter and in summer they lose most of their hair so we have to brush them lots. So they can and can't tell the weather.
