  Horse \Horse\ (h[^o]rs), n. [AS. hors; akin to OS. hros, D. &
     OHG. ros, G. ross, Icel. hross; and perh. to L. currere to
     run, E. course, current Cf. {Walrus}.]
     1. (Zool.) A hoofed quadruped of the genus {Equus};
        especially, the domestic horse ({Equus caballus}), which
        was domesticated in Egypt and Asia at a very early period.
        It has six broad molars, on each side of each jaw, with
        six incisors, and two canine teeth, both above and below.
        The mares usually have the canine teeth rudimentary or
        wanting. The horse differs from the true asses, in having
        a long, flowing mane, and the tail bushy to the base.
        Unlike the asses it has callosities, or chestnuts, on all
        its legs. The horse excels in strength, speed, docility,
        courage, and nobleness of character, and is used for
        drawing, carrying, bearing a rider, and like purposes.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Many varieties, differing in form, size, color, gait,
           speed, etc., are known, but all are believed to have
           been derived from the same original species. It is
           supposed to have been a native of the plains of Central
           Asia, but the wild species from which it was derived is
           not certainly known. The feral horses of America are
           domestic horses that have run wild; and it is probably
           true that most of those of Asia have a similar origin.
           Some of the true wild Asiatic horses do, however,
           approach the domestic horse in several characteristics.
           Several species of fossil ({Equus}) are known from the
           later Tertiary formations of Europe and America. The
           fossil species of other genera of the family
           {Equid[ae]} are also often called horses, in general
           sense.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. The male of the genus {Equus}, in distinction from the
        female or male; usually, a castrated male.

     3. Mounted soldiery; cavalry; -- used without the plural
        termination; as, a regiment of horse; -- distinguished
        from {foot}.
        [1913 Webster]

        vein -- is to divide into branches for a distance.
