. Our domestic animals, their habits, intelligence and usefulness; tr. from the French of Gos. De Voogt, by Katharine P. Wormeley;. Domestic animals. Trumpeters ok the Cuirassiers thousand in times of war. Her remounts come chiefly from Hungary, only a few being obtained within her own borders. Belgium has more than ten thousand horses, and her annual remount is one thousand ; the draft or transportation horses are easily derived from the Ardennes. The breeding of cavalry horses is encouraged to the utmost by the government. England has an annual need of nearly three thousand remounts, which it is easy to obtain in that country itself. The government takes no interest in breeding, except in the poorest districts of Ireland, where it has stationed a few Hackney stallions. Luxemburg, having a cavalry force of eight horses, finds little difficulty in the matter of remounts. The Netherlands has eight thousand military horses, of which all those for the cavalry and artillery come from Ireland, while about a hun- dred heavier horses are annually bought in the provinces of Groningen and Gelderland. They are bought at three and four years of age and spend one year at Millingen in large stables that communicate with vast fields, where they can run at liberty.
