Job 39:19 -25:
Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?
Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.
He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.
The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.
He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.
He saith among the trumpets, “Ha, ha;” and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
When I read a description, like the above, I shudder at the thought of how God has adorned this amazing creature with such strength and power. And, especially, when the description comes right from the mouth of the Creator, it just sends another shiver down my spine.
Horses have long been used for working. In fact, we have carvings, paintings and other forms of art that document the use of horses. Some, like the Egyptians, used horses to drive their chariots. Others used them for hunting, like the knights and ladies of the medieval ages. And still others used them to plow their fields, carry their luggage and transport them in a wagon.
Today horses are mainly used for entertainment and for a relaxing trot around the lake, or a quick race with the fastest horse on the block.
Horses are designed very perfectly for the lives they lead. In fact, the structure of the horse is so magnificent that they are one of the most written-about animal in all of history!
The head of the horse is very interesting because of its overall length and placement of important tools. The head itself is one of considerable mass and contains a pretty large brain that is very useful to the modern trainer.
This brain of theirs contains some sort of photographic memory, sound-o-graphic (made this word up, but you know what it means) memory and sensory skills . . . Read the rest of this page >>
