    1. That's because it is a breed of the domesticated horse. Posted 6 years ago
      1. Ah I see, we don't think of them as domesticated here but do understand they are only partly feral, thanks Posted 6 years ago
  2. We have allot of feral horses in the United States, some with pureblood though, like the Exmoor (i.e. Spainish Barb/Mustang). Good shot! I'm always interested in wild or feral horses and have shot many different herds, especially on the East Coast of the United States and out west as well. Posted 6 years ago

The horse is one of two extant subspecies of ''Equus ferus''. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae. The horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed creature into the large, single-toed animal of today. Humans began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread by 3000 BC.
