General Horse CareEdit
Horses are majestic creatures and are a joy to own. However, they require lots of care. They have to be groomed every 1-2 days, fed about 4 times, and must be excersized atleast once a week. They require seeing a farrier (a professional at applying horseshoes to your horse's hooves) , a vet, and an equine dentist about twice a year if not once.
It's not just the horse that needs care. The fence around the pasture needs to be maintained, and the pasture needs to be free of poisoness plants. The bridle and saddle need weekly cleaning to make sure they're in good shape. His stall needs to be maintained, and all of his grooming supplies need to be, too.
The horse has existed for thousands of years. It evolved from Hyracothrium, a small horse about the size of a dog, in Europe and Asia. Then it evolved from Hyracothrium to Mesohippus, Merychippus, and Pliohippus, and then to the horse we know today: Equus! Along the way, early men rode horses and gained their trust.
Horses need a clean, comfy stall to stay in when they're not in a pasture. Bedding (sawdust, hay, etc.) is required for the horse to lie down and be comfortable. It needs to be cleaned every other day to keep it suitable for your horse. Make sure your horse doesn't chew the wood. Food and water should be kept in seperate buckets next to the window of the stall.
Even so, horses can't stay in their stall all the time. They need to be out in the field three times a week. There should be no poisoness plants or litter in the field.
