Horses

One direction digestive system

Horses are unable to burp, vomit or breathe through their mouths. Their digestive system only works in one direction. The drawback is that this can cause colic. 1)

Horsepower

The peak power output of the horse could be as high as 15 horsepower; one hp (horsepower) is a rate of sustained activity of a horse in typical works in agriculture or powering industrial machines. 2)

Males have more teeth

Adult stallions have up to 44 permanent teeth in their mouth at once. Mares usually have between 36 and 40 teeth. 3)

Old Billy

Old Billy, born in England in 1760, was the longest-living horse, verified to be 62 on the day of his death. He lived as a barge horse that pulled barges up and down canals. 4)
