Horses Can Count




Researchers at the University of Cambridge have show that horses can count in the 4 to 6 range. They dropped differing amounts of fake apples (to eliminate the influence of smell) into two buckets. When released, the horse almost always went to the bucket with the most apples.

The horse considered two small apples to be better than one large apple.
