The world of genetics is a fascinating subject, and one which many horse fans are interested in! Chromosomes are an integral part of this process and help to pass on DNA from parents to offspring. But how many chromosomes do horses have?
So, as we have discovered, the chromosomes of a horse help to pass on genetic information when cells replicate. A horse has 32 pairs of chromosomes, which is 64 in total. A donkey has one less pair than a horse, and zebras have even fewer.
