The year 2014 is the year of a Horse according to the Chinese calendar. I am not going to tell you anything about the Chinese zodiac, let ⊱ Mickey ⊰ tells you about that, but I want to share with you some facts and maybe folly facts about horse. We have to admit that a horse is really one of the most elegant and magnificent animals. 

Did You Know?

1. Idioms/Phrases/Proverbs related to horse

A horse plays an important role through out the history of human kind. They had been domesticated for over 5000 years, thus there was no wonder that they were many idioms and phrases related to the horse.

a. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

This means to be ungrateful to someone who gives you something. The origin of this idiom can be traced back to St. Jerome who first uttered the phrase. This phrase is related to the value of a horse which is determined through its teeth. A horse value usually is based by its age. And, a horse's age is determined by checking through the prominence of their teeth. Therefore, when you're looking at a horse's teeth, it can be deemed that you're judging a gift of a horse by the horse's age. Ultimately, the phrase in a sense saying, the thoughts that count. So even if the gift is not so valuable, we should appreciate it.

b. Wild horses couldn't drag someone away

This mean that nothing can persuade someone from something, or someone is determined to remain with something. This proverb maybe originated from medieval torture of using horses to stretch prisoners to force them to confess.  

c. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

This proverb is really meaningful. It meant that you can give someone with an opportunity, but unfortunately, you can't force him/her to take advantage of the opportunity. It's one of the oldest English proverbs that is still being in used today. It's recorded as early as in 1175 in Old English Homilies.

2. A Horse Is Measured In Hands

The measurement of hands to determine the height of a horse can be traced back to ancient Egyptian. A hand is approximately about four inches, which is an average width of an adult male's hand. Thus, if a horse is said to be 14.2 HH (hand high) it meant that the horse is 14 hands and 2 inches, which is equivalent to 58 inches (14 x 4 inches + 2 inches).

3. A Horse Age in Comparison to Human

According to Equine Resources International, a horse aged about 6.5 years for each human year, until it reaches puberty. However, once a horse reaches the age of four, the rate slows to 2.5 years for each human years. This is the chart of horse age in comparison to human age.

Formula One Experiences   VS    My Traveling Experiences   VS   Did You Know

           Formula One Experiences   My Traveling Experiences      Did You Know

Total:               794 views                         2633 views            9921 views                

Average:           159 views                          263 views             451 views

Most viewed:      240 views                         410 views             973 views

Least viewed:      82 views                          126 views             158 views

...................................................................................................

Observation:

- The average of "Did you know" is greater than "My traveling E." while it is about three times greater than "Formula one E.".

-Most views blog in "Did you know"  got about four times more than what "Formula one" got.

while "Did you know" got around two times views more than "My traveling E."

-Least viewed blog in "Did you know" got views more than "My traveling E." and twice views of "Formula one".

Interesting observations:

-The average of "Did you know" blogs  is greater than the Most viewed blogs of "formula one" and "My travelling E."

Even the most viewed blogs in "Formula one" and "My traveling E." failed to achieve the average rate of 'Did you know".

-The least viewed "Did you know" blog got around the same views as the average of "formula one"blogs.

.............................................................................................................................

Conclusion

-"Did you know" is a very successful series if it compared with "Formula one" and "My traveling E." series.

-Even the most viewed blogs in "Formula one" and "My traveling E." failed to achieve the average rate of 'Did you know".

-"Did you know" series is an informative series that gives a few pieces of information in each of its blogs while "formula one" and "My Traveling E." series are Diaries series. It seems that EC members prefer to read informative series than Diaries series.
