Domestic Horse (Equus caballus)
2 October 2015: Driving north to the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in Sherman, Grayson County, Texas, we passed a bucolic scene of several Domestic Horses (Equus caballus) feeding in the grass as the wind tossed the wildflowers from one side to the other and the grasses rippled gently in the breeze. Next door in neighboring Denton County is found the State of Texas's largest horse industry, worth many multiple millions annually. Generally horses and related stock are abundant in this northern region of the state and many of its waged workers or modern-day cowboys are first- and second-generation Mexican American ranch hands that might have been referred to as vaqueros in an earlier era. Domestic horses are found throughout the Americas and are indeed an authentic resident of the Western Hemisphere since the first mustangs or mesteños (the original Spanish word from which is derived the word mustang in English) were brought to the New World at the time of European contact beginning in the 1490s to early 1500s. With European civilization and its inherent occupation and conquest came the Domestic Horse which has played an important role in human history ever since. As we know, no two-bit parade in Everytown, USA would be worth its salt if it didn't also include Domestic Horses. Oh, and of course, the humans riding high atop their backs and sturdy legs.
An odd-toed ungulate is a mammal with hooves that feature an odd number of toes.

Odd-toed ungulates are relatively large grazers and, unlike the ruminant even-toed ungulates (artiodactyls), they have relatively simple stomachs because they are hindgut fermenters, digesting plant cellulose in their intestines rather than in one or more...
