Cats and dogs both have rods and cones in their eyes. Rods allow animals (including humans) to see in low light, cones allow them to distinguish colors.
Dogs and cats have a far higher ratio of rods to cones compared to humans. This means that they can see better at night, but sacrifice the ability to distinguish color for that. Being predators, it's a wee bit more important evolutionarily for a predator to stalk it's prey in the dark, than it is to be able to tell the red flowers from the blue ones.
As both dogs and cats do have cones, it's suspected that they can see in color, but almost certainly to a degree that is far more muted than humans. Perhaps like a washed out or greyed over painting.
Hey Pinky..horse person here! Horses don't seem to see in color as we do, but studies have shown that they see neutral earth tones better than vivid colors, i.e. when placed in an electric fencing corral with hot pink and hot green even the yellow electric tape, the horses couldn't see it as well as when the tape was brown or green, which is why you see that type of tape used....
I believe you might have Thoroughbreds, but then again, maybe you meant something different. Just curious, how old are you? You mentioned that you are home schooled or privately schooled, you may want to ask your teacher to work with you on spelling. Many times it is really difficult to understand what you are trying to say.
Also, there is spell check on any computer, type out what you want to say and then run it through spell check. It will do wonders for your posts. Most people probably don't take you seriously because of your spelling, it does take a lot of deciphering to try and figure out what you are attempting to say.
Do you live on a farm? I had horses for years and really miss them. How did you end up with 12 or 13 horses?
Do you have pictures of your horses? I'd love to see them.
but sorry for my spelling! thanks for correcting me. but I don't get home schooled I go to a private alternative school. I like it a lot there I tryed to go to a big regular school but I didn't like it because there was 40-45 kids per class! crazy huh?
but I type really fast and sometimes I type the wrong things. sorry! but I can't help some of the spelling sometimes.
but the horses were the family horses I had 4 sisters and 1 brother. they all helped take care of the horses and we all shared them. that was until they moved out. I'm the youngest and I still live at home. butnow they are all mine.
thanks for correcting me on Thoroughbreds
I'll take some more pis of my horses and I'll post them for you guys!
Yah, I know what you mean about typing fast. Last time they checked me at work, years ago, I was doing 96 words per minute. Now I really fly and sometimes my thoughts get ahead of my fingers or vice versa.
Do you ride at all? English or Western? I love horses and really miss mine.
An auction? The Bureau of Land Management must not be keeping track of the horses they adopt out anymore. It used to be that if you adopted one of the Mustangs, you were not allowed to re-sell it. They have adopted out thousands of these Mustangs for $125, although I don't see much about the adoptions anymore, like I used to.
Am waiting for pictures of your horses. Do you own your own land or board them out?
