Horse Facts

Horses belong to the equus family. Equus comes from the ancient Greek word meaning quickness. Horses are mammals in the same family as zebras, mules and donkeys. 

A Baby Horse is Called a Foal. Generally, a foal is a baby horse. After it is weaned from its dam, it is called a weanling. But horses remain fillies or colts until they are two years of age.

A female horse is called a mare. In the wild it is the mare that decides when the herd moves on to another spot to find food. A male horse is called a stallion. Usually only one stallion will stay with a herd. Horses and ponies feel safer when they are in a herd. A horse can move in four ways: walk, trot, canter, and gallop. A gallop is the fastest gait.
