Horse - Equus caballus

Equus caballus, more commonly known as a horse, has long and rich history with humans. Dating back approximately 4,000 years ago when it is believed horses were first domesticated, and up until the emergence and availability of motorized transportation being affordable for the common person, the horse was an important and integral part of most families livelihood and well-being. Beautiful, strong and well muscled horses were used to plow fields, help with logging, mining, the building of railroads and more. They carried soldiers into war, families to new homes and onto new lives. They awe us with their abilities to run like the wind as well as being able jump and soar over obstacles of all kinds. They take us on journeys through the country side, help us round up livestock and reacquaint us with nature. They are our helpers, our servants, our companions and our friends.
