Horses are of course one of the world's most popular domesticated animal, having been used over the years for transport, farmwork, entertainment and companionship. A female horse is called a mare, and a baby horse is called a foal.
Fun Fact: Horses can sleep either standing up or lying down.
We've got a fun collection of horse-related activities to enjoy with the children, including a selection of colouring pages for a wide range of ages, and a set of our popular printables. More coming soon!
