Why is a horse such a special animal?

        The horse is a special animal because of its stamina and speed. You must be familiar with the unit of power of an engine, measured in terms of horsepower. In olden times, there was hardly anything that matched the power of a horse.

       The horse is the largest member of the equidae family. A horse can weigh up to 1000 kilograms. The male horses, known as a stallion, and the female horse, called a mare, do not have much difference in terms of weight. Stallions have a fighting technique that involves trying to bite the legs of the opponent. This needs extreme agility and strength.

       The largest horse in the world was a horse named Mammoth, which was born in 1848. In its health state, it weighed 1524 kilograms. The smallest horse in the world is Thumbelina, a fully mature horse, which is ailing from dwarfism. Do you know how much she weighs? Just 26 kilograms.
