FactFeed 1 - Horses' fake nostrils

Discover the second nostril of the horse, and learn a bit of hands-on knowledge. This information is specially relevant in veterinary procedures such as nasotracheal and nasogastric intubation.

Warning: unless you are qualified or have experience with horses, please do not try to poke the poor animal's nostrils unsupervised. Horses are very nervous and might bite or otherwise wound a human being. Stay safe!
