Critter of the Week – Horses

Our Critter of the Week is the horse. Man has always had a very close relationship with this strong and sturdy member of the animal kingdom. Before the car was invented man relied on the horse for almost everything. Now in days, the horse has a pretty relaxed life in the United States at least and they are used for almost exclusively for leisure activities and sports.

Horses use their facial expressions to communicate. Their moods can be gauged with the help of their nostrils, eyes and ears.
