Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The _______ has a rubber blade which can be drawn over the coat to squeeze out moisture.

    • A.

      Water brush

    • B.

      Stable rubber

    • C.

      Sweat scraper

    • D.

      Cactus cloth

    Correct Answer
    C. Sweat scraper
    Explanation
    A sweat scraper is a tool used to remove excess moisture from a horse's coat after exercise or bathing. It typically consists of a rubber blade that can be drawn over the coat to squeeze out the water. This helps to dry the horse more quickly and prevent the coat from becoming damp and uncomfortable. The other options, such as water brush, stable rubber, and cactus cloth, do not specifically serve this purpose of removing moisture from a coat.

    Strapping is the thorough grooming of the stabled horse that is done once a day.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Strapping refers to the process of thoroughly grooming a horse that is kept in a stable, and it is typically done once a day. This involves brushing and cleaning the horse's coat, mane, and tail, as well as cleaning their hooves and removing any dirt or debris. Therefore, the statement that strapping is the thorough grooming of a stabled horse that is done once a day is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A wisp will cause the horse to flinch the muscles against the bang. The muscles will be exercised this way.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that a wisp will cause a horse to flinch its muscles against the bang. This means that when a wisp is used on a horse, it will react by tensing its muscles. This reaction can be seen as a form of exercise for the horse's muscles. Therefore, the statement is true as it implies that using a wisp on a horse can help in exercising its muscles.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Twice or three times a year is enough shampooing for the average non-competitive horse.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that shampooing a non-competitive horse twice or three times a year is sufficient. However, this is not true. Horses need regular grooming and bathing to maintain their hygiene and overall health. Regular shampooing helps in removing dirt, sweat, and other impurities from their coat, preventing skin issues and maintaining a clean and shiny appearance. Therefore, the correct answer is false, as horses require more frequent shampooing than suggested in the statement.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The largest organ of the horse's body is the skin.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The skin is the largest organ of the horse's body because it covers and protects the entire surface of the horse. It acts as a barrier against external factors such as bacteria, viruses, and physical injuries. The skin also plays a vital role in regulating body temperature and excreting waste products. Additionally, the skin is responsible for providing sensory information to the horse, allowing it to perceive touch, pressure, and pain. Therefore, it can be concluded that the skin is indeed the largest organ of the horse's body.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The contracting and dilating of the skin’s blood vessels is controlled by reflex nerve action.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the contracting and dilating of the skin's blood vessels is indeed controlled by reflex nerve action. Reflex nerve action refers to the involuntary response of the nervous system to external stimuli, such as changes in temperature or pressure. In the case of the skin's blood vessels, reflex nerve action helps regulate blood flow and temperature by constricting or dilating the vessels. This allows the body to maintain homeostasis and adapt to different environmental conditions.

    A dry water brush is used to "lay" the mane and tail.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A dry water brush is not used to "lay" the mane and tail. It is typically used to remove dirt, dust, and loose hair from the horse's coat. To "lay" the mane and tail, a different type of brush or comb is usually used, such as a mane and tail brush or a detangling comb. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The sheath is the outer covering of the penis of the male horse. It collects secretions and should be washed gently twice a week.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the sheath is not the outer covering of the penis of the male horse. The sheath is actually a pouch-like structure that surrounds and protects the penis when it is not erect. It does not collect secretions and does not need to be washed twice a week. Cleaning the sheath should only be done as needed, typically once or twice a year, to remove any accumulated dirt or debris.
