Fact? Not sure if dehydration can directly lead to colic, but I know if a horse drinks a large amount of water at once after exercising or becoming dehydrated, that can be a risk.

Fact or Fiction: 'Half-seat' is the same as 2 point position.

Fact.

(Also, dehydration can definitely cause colic, and it’s 100% a myth that letting a horse drink after exercise will cause colic. Start with half a bucket, give them more if they’re still thirsty- it’s more dangerous to withhold water from a hot horse)

Fact or Fiction: Roundworms are dangerous to foals, but not adult horses.

Horses actually do have the largest eyes of any land mammal. Ostriches are birds, not mammals.

And fact, male horses develop them at the age of four or five, but on some females they aren’t always developed by then.

I am answering her question, she asked how to change her profile picture.
Go to the top right corner of the screen and you will see a button that has a shape of a person hover over it with your mouse (if you have the game on a phone or an ipad just tap it) anyway go to acount, then scroll down and you will notice a headline that says My Avatar and click on edit your avatar and chose a pic.

Fiction. In the center pirouette, the horse really sits back on its haunches and elevates the front end, while a reining spin or pivot is low and fast.

Fact or Fiction? Solid-colored appaloosas cannot be registered with the ApHC.

Fiction I believe, they're just not registered the same way as standard ones. It's not a color breed in any case.

Fiction: Horses died out in North America after humans crossed the land bridge. One theory is that they were hunted to extinction alongside the megafauna of the Ice Age, who were already hard-hit by climate change. Horses were not re-introduced until Europeans came to the Americas.

Fact or Fiction: Mustangs are considered a native species by the Bureau of Land Management in the USA.

Fiction! The US BLM does not consider mustangs to be a native species (mostly because there have been recent additions through non-wild horse releases).
Also, thanks, because I found a really pretty mare that didn't get sold in the recent auction, and now I want her :[
