The modern horse (genus Equus, which also includes zebras, asses, etc.) evolved about 4 million years ago in North America. It spread to Asia, Europe and Africa. North American horses went extinct about 8,000 years ago, probably due to disease.
Horses have been in Florida for approximately 25 million years, but Equus (the modern horse) has been here for about 2 million. The Pleistocene example here had an appearance very similar to the modern horse, although often slightly smaller. Its remains are very common in Florida rivers and streams. If the chewing surface of the horse tooth is approximately square, it is an upper tooth. If rectangular, it is a lower. This is true with many plant chewing animals, such as elephants, rhinos, tapirs, titanotheres, etc.

The horse (Equus caballus, sometimes seen as a subspecies of the Wild Horse, Equus ferus caballus) is a large odd-toed ungulate mammal, one of ten modern species of the genus Equus. Horses have long been among the most economically important domesticated animals; although their importance has declined with mechanization, they are still found worldwide, fitting into human lives in various ways. The horse is prominent in religion, mythology, and art; it has played an important role in transportation, agriculture, and war; it has additionally served as a source of food, fuel, and clothing.
