"I Spy"
The horse family has the largest eyes of any land mammal. It has a field of vision of almost 360 degrees. They are located on the sides of their heads and provide both peripheral and binocular vision. The only blind spot is directly behind the head. They probably see color. Vision is acute during daylight, but at night, it even rivals dogs and owls. Their hearing and smell is also acute. They have a very well developed Jacobson's organ.
