Humans have been breeding horses for thousands of years. Over the centuries, we have refined the breeding process. That means that we have been able to continue the lineage of specific breeds for some time. This is easy to notice in the traits that breeds have. An example of this is a Thoroughbred. The Thoroughbred is actually a specific breed of horse. It’s a breed that’s both strong and fast.
Anyone that has grown up around horses will know how easy it is to fall in love with both the animals and the lifestyle that’s associated with them. Whether it’s recreational riding or professional horse racing, there’s a lot to love about horses and the people that look after them. Sometimes that love can transform into a genuine and sincere passion, enough to make a person consider getting a career working with horses in some shape or form.
Horses are majestic and powerful animals that have been domesticated for thousands of years. They have played a vital role in human history and continue to be used for a variety of purposes, including transportation, agriculture and leisure activities as riding and racing.
Greyhounds are beautiful, sleek animals who thrive in a loving environment. They make great family pets, and once they’ve formed their pack, they’re fiercely protective. Greyhounds do, however, have certain needs that must be met for them to thrive in a new environment. Before you decide to take the plunge and start a Greyhound adoption process, here are some things you should think about. (more…)
Sometimes it’s easy to understand what your horse wants: from the way they sidle up to you for a treat to the happy trot as they’re let out for their morning walk. Other times it can be confusing to try and figure out what your horse’s body language is saying. Here are three answers to the most common horse behaviour questions.
A horse is a large animal, and anyone that raises them will know that there are a thousand and one different factors to keep in mind when it comes to maintaining the animal’s health. New horses owners will go to great lengths to ensure that their animal’s coat and hooves are in good shape, but it’s not uncommon for them to completely forget to keep track of the horse’s dental health.
Your greyhound is similar to any other type of dog breed in the sense that it needs to figure out its place in your pack, this being all of the humans and animal members of your family it’ll interact with. It’ll need to learn how to treat all the humans and animals it’ll come across with the respect he instinctively shows to pack leaders.
Owning your first greyhound is an exciting venture, especially as they’re one of the healthiest breeds around, with very few hereditary health conditions to worry about. Which, after centuries of breeding, one would expect.
As herbivores horses have a natural diet consisting of constant pasture grass eating. A good pasture will contain all the nutrients that a horse needs to function normally on a daily basis.
Horses, much like dogs or cats, are curious and intelligent animals that require a fair amount of stimulation throughout their lives in order to maintain good mental health.
This is especially important for those horses that are used to run races, as being under-stimulated can make the animal that much more difficult to train, along with a host of other behavioural problems that can end up being something of a serious problem.
