All About Hannah the Horse

 

Who am I?
My name is Hannah, I am a horse.
I am known as a mare as I am female, male horses are known as stallions.

What do I look like?
I come in many different shapes, sizes and colours! I have long legs and a long tail. My hair covers my whole body and is short apart from mane – which runs all the way down the back of my neck. I also have very large teeth.

Where is your home?
We can live anywhere really especially as I am classed as domesticated which means I live alongside humans like you! You may spot horses in fields, stables or farms near to where you live.

 

Did you know?  
Horses eyes are at the side of their heads. This means they can see nearly 360 degrees at one time.
Why don’t you do a full turn yourself and see how much you can see?

How big am I?
A typical horse measures between 1.4m to 1.8m but this does vary depending on the breed. Did you know we measure a horse by ‘hands’? This means a typical horse size of 1.4m will measure 13.5 hands.

What do I like to eat?
I like to graze (eat little but often) grass and hay. I do like peas, beans, apples and also carrots!

Interesting Facts!
I have about 205 bones in my skeleton

We are herbivores (eat plants)
Horses can sleep both lying down and standing up!

TASK!
A horse at full gallop runs can reach speeds of up to 27mph – the fastest recorded horse ran at 55mph!!
Can you time yourself to see how fast you can run?
