The horse has been a dependable companion to man through the ages. Horses have been indispensable in peace and war. They are strong, faithful and intelligent animals with a long record of fast and reliable transportation on land. The .early horse was a small animal about the size of a fox. Scientists call it Eohippus or Dawn Horse. This primitive horse lived about 50 million years ago. It lived in Asia,. North Africa, Europe and North America. The American variety disappeared many thousands of years ago. The horse was brought back to America by the Spanish conquerors and other colonists. Eohippus was valued by prehistoric man as a source of food. It had no means of defense since its hoofs had not developed. It acquired great running ability as a means of self protection. As the horse evolved through thousands of years, it became larger, but retained its speed of movement. We know much of the early ancestry of the horse through fossils found in many parts of the world. 4-28 (Jan Harvie ofBath, Maine, wins a prize for this question.
