A dark and rainy moment in time As we went for an extended geocaching stroll that day we encountered this pack of horsepower trotting along. "Because of the extreme weather conditions experienced on the moors, the Dartmoor pony is a particularly hardy breed with excellent stamina.". All ponies free-roaming on Dartmoor are owned and protected by Dartmoor commoners. A romantic life, or so it seems.

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.
