technically the only ferral breed of horse in the world are the rare przewalski horses, and mustang is not a breed, it is a term for any horse that is semi- feral.

Only if you're foolish enough to get too close to one that you don't know their temperament - sorta like people. And I agree, there is nothing in the world more naturally beautiful or graceful than a horse.

I am inclined to lean more to the original comment. I dont hate them, but yea no fuzzy feeling at all. Not because they are scary or anything but yea never been my cup of tea at all.

I do like videos of them playing though (horsing around ;) ) that is really cool to look at!! If you would see that more in real life (instead of a glare/glassy stare) I would like them a whole lot better)

Other than that yea no, I have never gotten a pleasant feeling around them personally and dont see why people praise them so much (out of proportion I mean, it is like some infatuation. I can see the core of truth in the comments but yea if compared to how people talk about other animals it is kind of strange.

And how come a donkey doesnt get equally as much praise? they look much sweeter/friendlier and more cuddly imo.

(I guess for girls it is sort of a childhood dream tending for a horse, dont ask me why, and guys see the power in it? )

Omg I did well on a horse quiz! I thought I would get like 10% max but I got them all! It is arguably the animal I know least about haha, well atleast compared to all the other common animals (pets & livestock/barnyard). I got 100% ! Ow wait I did not, I failed gallop, but I did write it, twice (atleast) actually but apparenly misspelled it every time.

There are MANY forms of horse racing, try taking a Thoroughbred to a barrel racing event for example.

You could take a Thoroughbred to a barrel racing contest they have the speed, though probaly not the agility, but if you worked with it it could enter, though a Quarter horse is more that speed.
