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 if they are related by genus to horses or not. 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...















Here's a few of the horse jokers that have been added since this article was first created. I just bought these four (10-29-2018) but as they arrived, I realized that I almost wish that I hadn't. They aren't that appealing or interesting. My taste in jokers is evolving or at least getting clearer. While I like some horse jokers (the first one in this article is really nice), these next four are just more for the sake of more: they don't actually appeal to me. I wonder if I'll get to a point where I stop collecting new ones that I don't actually like or even, discard those that I don't like. How much am I trapped in the numbers game of more is always better?

  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.
