Yeah, I know you've been thinking of taking a horse-drawn stagecoach somewhere. I'm sure you've been seeing them drop off and pick up passengers in the centre of town. Not sure where you'll end up though. You'd still be in the 19th century, right?
Is there a horse you especially like? Are you bonding with one?
It's said that if you treat a horse with kindness, it will remember you for the rest of its life and will recognize you whenever it sees you again. The life expectancy for a horse is 25 to 30 years.
What's that? You think you're starting to like horses? You love their big, long-lashed eyes?
Horses have the largest eyes of any land animal. Usually dark brown, they can also be colours of green, amber or blue. In horses with markings of white, either both eyes or just one can be blue.
And don't try sneaking up on this horse. A horse's hearing is good and it can rotate its ears around without moving its head.
Go ahead and stroke his forehead or muzzle, though. His sense of touch is well developed. He can feel the slightest touch, even by those of a fly landing anywhere on his body.
So get out there and do the horsey thing! Just don't fall off this time.
By the way, it is only proper to ride a horse side-saddle in the 19th century.
