Horses evolved over 50 million years from dog sized Eohippus into the modern horse Equus. The evolution of the horse is one of the most well understood complete lineages in evolution. Early horse ancestors walked with several spread out toes, but slowly through time with the need to outrun predators more efficiently their 3rd toe evolved into a "hoof" allowing them to run faster and more efficiently.

By the time Westerners made it to America, native North American horses had gone completely extinct. However, runaway horses brought over by Westerners quickly repopulated the landscape—coming full circle.
