Animal Fact: Horses Are Not Colorblind
Horses are beautiful creatures to look at, and thousands of fanatics enjoy riding them or showing them every year. A male horse is called a stallion and a female horse is a mare. Horses which have been tamed usually live to be around 25 years old. However, the oldest domestic horse on record was Old Billy, who died at the age of 62. Another good fact about horses is, when they are seen standing up, don’t assume they are awake! These creatures can sleep either standing up or lying down. A group of horses will not go to sleep at the same time – at least one of them will stay awake to look out for the others. Horses are not colorblind. They are better at seeing yellows and greens than purples and violets.
