Animal Jokers: Horses Equestrian

The horsey section of the joker collection has 36 different jokers in it. I take some liberties admittedly in that I count the zebras as horses whereas I know not of what they are related by genus or not.  Coming soon is the feline (cat) and canine ( dog) and the diverse section. The Animal Jokers that Fly article is already up.

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


  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.
