Animal Jokers: Horses Equestrian

The horsey section of the joker collection has 52 different jokers in it (as of 3/2019). I take some liberties in that I count the zebras as horses whereas I know not if the striped ones are truly related by genus to horses or not.

Animal lovers: There's also the feline (cat) jokers and canine ( dog) jokers, the diverse animal joker section, and the Animal Jokers that Fly section.

So, without further ado, the horse jokers...

This next section was updated on 3/16/2019.  I'm showing fronts and backs of all my horsey jokers! There are now 52 in the section: nearly doubled in two years.

Below are the backs of the jokers above. You might think the back on the top left if the back of the joker on the top left.  You are wrong.  Think about these being pages in a book that get flipped.  #mindblown!


  1. Awesome! I love the ones that are eating the cards. My horses would do that. (BTW: zebras are indeed wild horses. Horses, donkeys and zebras are all equids. Domestic horses are Equus Caballus; zebras are Equus Zebra -- actually, there are a couple of other species of zebra, but I forget their Latin name. Equus Zebra is the easy one. )

  2. Giraffes, on the other hand, aren't closely related to horses at all. Horses are most closely related to rhinos and tapirs. Giraffes are closely related to okapis and then more distantly related to deer, etc. Horses and giraffes are in completely different Orders -- giraffes (and deer and cows) are even-toed, while horses and rhinos are odd-toed, so giraffes are in the Order artiodactyla and horses are in the Order perrissodactlya.

  3. Not even every horse lover should actually own a horse. Horses are a huge time commitment, as well as a huge emotional and financial commitment.
