Good and Evil in The Horses - Good and Evil in The Horses The concepts of good and evil resonate throughout the work of the Scottish poet Edwin Muir. In Muir’s important poem “The Horses,” guilt and innocence, good and evil, are also in the plainest view.

The Five Senses in Horses - Based on what I have observed I would conclude that vision and touch are the two sensory systems most important for the animal to function successfully in its environment.

A horse in that respect needs to have vision of what is going on in its surroundings and personal space.
