Horses - Fact or Fiction
That sounds true but idk
Fact or fiction horses can be killed by doing something wrong with the frog
Fact? It would depend on what is being done to the frog. For example, a horse puncturing the frog could penetrate more deeply and affect the bones of the hoof, or even cause infection.
Fact or fiction: if your horse is colicking, you should not let it lay down.
Fact. You shouldn't let a horse lay down when they're clicking.
Fact or Fiction: A horse's teeth never stop growing
To go back and answer my query, you CAN let a horse lay down, as long as the horse does not roll. Simply laying down does not harm your horse, especially if they are exhausted and in pain. If they show signs of wanting to roll, then they must be brought back to their feet.
But anyway, MORI has the next question!
This is not quite right either, a colicky horse that rolls is just showing signs of pain and rolling is one way of them trying to alleviate pain. Usually by the time a colicky horse rolls, their intestine is already twisted - rolling doesn't cause the twist. Of course, if they are violently rolling and traumatizing themselves thrashing around, then you should get them to their feet.
If they show signs of wanting to roll, then they must be brought back to their feet.
Fact or fiction -
A horse having a high fever for a long time can lead to founder?
FoF: Horses can see the color pink.
Fiction! Horses normally see in yellow-gray tones, which means they can't see pink.
FoF: Hanging cheek ( or Baucher) bits apply pool pressure.
Fact, the hanging cheek/baucher applies a small amount of poll pressure. This comes from the "hanging" portion of the ring which attaches to the cheekpieces. Pulling on the reins simultaneously applies backwards pressure on the mouth and downward pressure on the poll.
Fact or fiction: Bauchers are legal for dressage competitions.
Fiction, horses have only been domesticated for about 4,000 years (earliest evidence is from the Romans, around 2000BCE)
Fact or Fiction? A horse's front limbs aren't attached to its body by bone, just muscle.
(its always been really weird to me that they dont have collarbones :0 )
FoF : Horses can have canines.
