Same format as the other one but this one is nothing specific to do with arabs. So came be anything from physiology to film stars.

I'll start by asking a question, the person who gets it right asks the next question and so on.

I'll start with an easy one.....

Which bone do humans have but horses don't?

I don't think it can be the digits because I think the splint bones etc are vestigal(sp) fingers etc.

How about the Hyoid bone? I'm suggesting this because it relates to speech therefore I'm surmising that although horses vocalise, it is not speech.

No, that's wrong (I've just googled it)! I'm enjoying this!

Er still trying to think of a good one, honest, but my computer has been messing around again
Wrote down about 7 or 8 earlier, but when I checked they were WAY too easy to find on the internet. So I'm still thinking, it's actually very much harder thinking of questions than answering them.

I'm not playing this game any more I have found it SO hard to think of a question that might keep you guys going for more than 10 seconds, I think I'll just stick to the 'other' quiz.
In Buddhism what breed of horse was Buddha thought to ride and what was his name?

Is it worth carrying on with this quiz?

Personally I love this sort of thing as I'm really geeky about Equine Science and horsey trivia but if no-one is going to join in there's not much point in continuing.

So what do you think?

In the mean time what breed of horse derives it name from another species?

Vera I absolutely love the quizzes and join in as much as time allows. Will try and look a bit more tomorrow when I have proper access to a pc.
