About Horses

Horses as pets are among the most majestic and expensive of the lot. They require a lot of grooming, food, and attention for keeping as pets. You will likely need to hire someone that can care for the horse. Obviously they are not ideal as indoor pets. Their size makes them ones that need a large area to graze and to be able to be active. If you want to save money and to be able to help develop a bond with the horse, learn from the professional groomers. They can show you the right way to care for the horse.

Feeding Your Horse and Caring for it

Horses love fruit and sugar, although the bulk of their diet is based off of grain based plants. There are a few basic things one should know, never ride a horse after it has fed, wait for one half hour after putting the saddle on before tightening it and getting on, make sure the hoofs are clean and have no splits, and make sure their food is not rancid.

These four legged beasts are perfect for rides along the beach or for long rides in the wilderness. They are also ideal for training and usually the larger of the horses are the more calm. This may not always be the case, but it seems to be the norm. Horses are herbivores, which means that they only eat vegetation (grains, hay) although they like apple and sugar.
