HI,

I have a question about horses eyesight. I was recently told that horses see objects 10x there size, I’ve asked a few of my friends with horses and have gotten different responses. I’ve been around horses for a long time and have never heard of anything like this ….. Have you?

Thanks alot,
Tina

Tina,

No, horses see things for what they are.
Thanks,
Dr. Lowder
