  1. Great shot Lucy, and welcome to JungleDragon!

    Please do take note that JungleDragon considers photos of pets as offtopic, and usually they are deleted. A horse is somewhat of a doubtful case so this one stays. But please do keep in mind that the focus is on nature and wildlife, with the exclusion of pets. I hope you understand.

  2. Thank you.

    I wasn't sure whether you would class it as an animal or pet, so decided to upload it and see what you/others thought. I completly understand. :)

  3. Very beautifull picture!
    I like horses myself and have tried before to capture the steam and breath, but failed. So I admire even more that you have been able to catch it on photo so well.

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.
