All about HORSES
Horses use their ears, eyes and nostrils to express their mood. They also communicate their feelings through facial expressions, and they have near 360 degree vision. They do however have blind spots directly in front and behind them.
It is extremely Dangerous to stand behind a horse as they are liable to kick out if they get scared by anything as kicking out is their way of defending themselves.
Horses use a range of different vocalisations to communicate. Whinnying and neighing sounds are elicited when horses meet or leave each other. Stallions (adult male horses) perform loud roars as mating calls, and all horses will use snorts to alert others of potential danger. Mares (adult female horses) use deep smooth sounds, whickering, when they are nursing a foal (infant horse)
Horses and other equines have better senses of smell and hearing than humans. Their ears can turn in different directions to aid their hearing.
