The wild horses are used to living freely and carrying young men on their back, but also because of the temptation of food and fear they can be hunted and become a corpse. The wild horse life is full of uncertainty. Some people like these fearless partners because they like to live free, leaving them alone. Sometimes they must choose between freedom or socialization, leading to injury.

The wild horses are the animals of prey animals and have the following characteristics:

1. Good vision, good hearing, and a good sense of smell.

The horses can see, hear and smell the things around well. They can judge the things around them, so they can survive in the wild. So men who ride on the back of horses can judge the dangers around them. They have extremely strong hearing, so they hear even a slight noise, which helps them avoid danger.

2. Hair color changes according to seasons

The wild horse lives freely in nature and has grown up in highlands and mountains. So they can adapt to different temperature fluctuations, short winter and long summer seasons. Their body changes color during these periods, making them more difficult for predators to hunt.

3. Agility and flexibility

The horses are agile and flexible with strong legs that can travel long distances at a fast speed. They can go through the forest and can escape from many kinds of predators.

4. Stamina and strength

The horses have a strong heart and lung system, so they can live for a long time without food. They swallow small stones in the stomach that help grind food easily in their intestines like pebbles in a mill. The wild horses are usually thin in the winter and like to eat grass in the summer.

5. The horse has thin skin but is very resistant to injury.

Wild horses can easily dodge sharp thorns when running through forest paths with thickets. Their thin skin does not protect them from injuries until they die of bleeding, but their thin skin also makes them vulnerable to cold weather.

6. Good at swimming

The wild horses are good swimmers, so they can find water easily in the forest. They can even cross rivers and lakes without sinking by standing on the bottom of the river with their hooves that have wide flat tips, also using them as paddles. This ability helps them survive during the dry season when there is little water in nature.

7. Adaptation to highlands and mountains

The wild horses live in the highlands and mountain areas, so they have small heads with short snouts that help them breathe easily even when climbing to a high place. They can run quickly uphill or downhill without getting tired because their back has a small hump.

8. The horse’s mane and tail can control the temperature

The wild horses have a small place like the camel’s humps on the back that help them adapt to climate changes and temperature fluctuations. They can move their manes and tails to create wind currents that cool their skin, making them feel cooler.
