International Artist - - Station Points -

Dogs are more closely re­lated to wolves than they are to coy­otes. The re­ward cen­ters in a dog’s brain re­spond sim­i­larly to those of a hu­man when it re­ceives praise. The draft horses known as “Bel­gians” in the USA are known as “Bra­bants” in Bel­gium. Draft horses were orig­i­nally bred for car­ry­ing sol­diers wear­ing suits of ar­mor. The world’s tallest horse is a Bel­gian named “Big Jake,” over 20 hands high, al­most 7 feet at the shoul­der.
