    Domestic horses live approximately twenty-five years, but can have longer lives if they are healthy. They can also live much shorter lives than that, unfortunately.
    Domestic horses are normally very happy eating grain along with their hay and grass.
    Horses can be kept in their own field, but must be able to see a field where other horses are living so that they don't become lonely and depressed.
    A stallion is a male horse who has not been castrated. A male horse who has been castrated is known as a gelding.
