Default Fun & Fast Horse Facts

Fun and Fast Horse Facts

The oldest horse on record was named Old Billy, a Cleveland Bay that lived to be 62 years old.

Adult horses only sleep 3-4 hours in a 24 hour period.

The tallest horse was named Samson back in the 1850's. Samson stood at 21.2 inches high.

The smallest horse in the world is Thumbelina (aptly named). She stands at just 17 inches tall!

A horse can see in all directions except for directly in front and directly behind him.

The highest successful jump ever was made by a horse named Huaso in Chile. He jumped 8 feet!

A mule is a cross between a male donkey (known as a jack) and a female horse (mare). Mules are always sterile.
Horses cannot breathe through their mouth.
Have a great day! Judy
