Transcript of "Horses"

  1. 1. By Rachael Myette
  2. 2. Paint Horse The American Paint Horse is an excellent breed. American paint horses are descendants of spotted quarter horses and thoroughbreds. Paint is the Spanish word for pintado. Their height can reach 16 hands. The American paint horse has colors ranging from white with mixes of brown, black, and bay. Other colors included gray, dun, chestnut, sorrel and palomino. Making this breed of horse gorgeous.The paint horse is a versatile breed. Used for showing, cattle round up due to their speeds of up to 55 miles per hour. Paints are also used for barrel racing in rodeos as well as calf and team roping. Paints make wonderful trail riding horses. Temperament of this breed is wonderful, they love to please their owner and do what is asked of them. Their even temperament allows for new riders to learn quickly. Paints are intelligent and very sensible horses. Taking care of the American paint horse is quite easy. Give them healthy feed for their age, plenty of fresh water and a clean stable. Fields to graze with plenty of room to run. Bathing and brushing will keep them clean. Keep up to dates on shots and wormers.
  3. 3. Thoroughbred Horse The Thoroughbred as it is known today was developed in 17th and 18th- century England, when native mares were crossbred with imported Oriental stallions of Arabian, Barb, and Turkoman breeding. All modern Thoroughbreds can trace their pedigrees to three stallions originally imported into England in the 17th century and 18th century, and to a larger number of foundation mares of mostly English breeding. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Thoroughbred breed spread throughout the world; they were imported into North America starting in 1730 and into Australia, Europe, Japan and South America during the 19th century. Millions of Thoroughbreds exist today, and more than 118,000 foals are registered each year worldwide. Thoroughbreds are used mainly for racing, but are also bred for other riding disciplines such as show jumping, combined training, dressage, polo, and fox hunting. They are also commonly crossbred to create new breeds or to improve existing ones, and have been influential in the creation of the Quarter Horse, Standardbred, Anglo-Arabian, and various warmblood breeds.
  4. 4. Gypsy Vanner horseThere is no set color standard for Gypsy Cobs, although the breed is often piebald in coloring. In the United Kingdom, patterns consisting of patches of black and white are traditionally called piebald, and patches of any other color with white are called skewbald. The Gypsy Vanner typically has an abundant mane and tail as well as "feather" or "feathering" on the legs, long hair starting at the cannon bone and flowing down over the hooves. The build is powerful and compact, with a short neck and back. The Gypsy cob is heavy boned, the typical horse measuring between 14 and 16 hands (56 and 64 inches, 142 and 163 cm). There is no height limit in the registry. The cannon circumference can range from 8" to 12". The chest is broad with well sprung ribs, the hips are heavy, they have short backs, strong shoulders, and the withers are rounded. The hair should be straight and silky, kinky hair is a fault. Their legs should have heavy bone set on large hooves, their hind legs should not be too straight. Gypsy Vanners must also have excellent endurance, and be able to go long distances without tiring.
  5. 5. MustangMustangs are often referred to as wild horses but, since all free-roaming horses now in the Americas descended from horses that were once domesticated, the more correct term is feral horses.[1] The English word "mustang" comes from the Mexican Spanish word mestengo, derived from Spanish mesteño, meaning "stray livestock animal".[2] The Spanish word in turn may possibly originate from the Latin expression animalia mixta (mixed beasts), referring to beasts of uncertain ownership, which were distributed in shepherd councils, known as mestas in medieval Spain.[3] A mestengo was any animal distributed in those councils, and by extension any feral animal.
  6. 6. Always respect horse and never treat them bad because they will remember what you did and they will never be the same and if you cant afford to take care of them then give them away. Thanks For Watching
