Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My literal horse knows a lot of sailors. At the base of his tail is a ______.

Answer: dock

Docking can also refer to the now rarely-seen practice of cutting off a horse's tail. It was thought the horse looked more stylish in harness with a tail of not more than a foot long. Anyone who has ever watched horses in pasture swishing the flies with their tails can easily understand how cruel this practice was.
2. My literal horse is of royal blood (though he is modest and doesn't brag). I know this is true because at the top of each hoof is his __________.

Answer: coronet

The coronet is the band at the top of the hoof - rather like the nail bed on your fingers. An injury to the coronet can be serious because it could affect the new hoof growth.
3. My literal horse has a brown thumb. He can't grow any plants because where his neck joins his back he has _________.

Answer: withers

The source of the word probably dates back to medieval times - the old English word wider, meaning to oppose. The withers are the part of the horse which would oppose the load when harnessed.
4. My literal horse can jump really high, because on each foot he has a _____.

Answer: frog

The word frog as pertaining to horses is to be of Italian or French orgin, but nobody is really sure.
5. My literal horse is very quiet. On his back leg he has a ________.

Answer: stifle

Archie and Edith Bunker would have gotten this one right!
6. My literal horse is never quite well. He is always coughing because his rump is his ________.

Answer: croup

I warned you at the beginning that this was a punny quiz!
7. My literal horse is always ready for Christmas. He has four ___________, one on the inside of each leg.

Answer: chestnuts

The chestnuts are actually what is left of the horse's thumbs.
8. My literal horse is popular with surfers, because on his neck it's easy to find a _______ .

Answer: crest

From Old French for hair, or tuft.
9. My literal horse wants to know what people think. Between his ears he has a ___.

Answer: poll

Yet another word of old English origin. It is a reminder of how long the horse has been our friend and servant.
10. My literal horse will never be broke, because his behind is his ________.

Answer: quarters

The horse's quarters are its source of power. Experienced horse people look for well-developed quarters for all equine disciplines.
