We had better get our horse owners rating up before Obama claims they are worthless like the wild horses and has them killed. I am very serious. How many of us on this forum will own horses after Obama has done is damage on the whole economy, mushless the equine industry. Here today, gone tomorrow!
The ecomony is really scaring me, if a civial war breaks out in the US, what to do about feed, hay, trucks big enough to pull trailers still produced, etc.
If there are 7,000,000 million horses in the U.S. and 320,000,000 people in the U.S. that means that the maximum percentage of people owning horses is .021%.
I've heard that there U.S. equine population is, in fact, closer to 20,000,000. If that is true then the maximum percentage rises to .063%.
We are not so common as we think we are.
No, it's 2 percent. 7 million divided by 320 million = 0.0218, or 2 percent. I think the decimal is throwing you, but it's easy to see how 160 million horses is fifty percent, right? Then do this: 160/320=.50. Fifty percent.
