National I Love Horses Day – July 15

I LOVE HORSES DAY

Horse and equestrian lovers across the nation celebrate each year on July 15th as National I Love Horses Day is one of their favorite “unofficial” holidays.  This day pays tribute to, and honors, the horse. According to an Animal Plant poll, the horse is the world’s fourth favorite animal. (Wikipedia)

Playing an important role in history, horses have been an essential part of our countries development as, from the beginning, they helped in exploring new territory, provided transportation, helped in the fields, helped in war as well as companionship.

This day is a great opportunity to learn more about horses.  While you are doing research at your local library or on the ‘net’, learn more about the Colt, Filly, Foal, Gelding, Mare, Stallion and Yearling.

Did you know:  Horses have the largest eyes of all land mammals?  Also, horses are lateral-eyed, giving them a range of vision of more than 350•.

CELEBRATE

To celebrate this animal holiday, you can spend time with your horse/horses (if you have any) or someone’s that you know, go riding, groom your horse, volunteer at a horse rescue, foster a horse or donate to a charity that helps horses. Post on social media using #NationalILoveHorsesDay to encourage others to join in paying it forward.
