Equidae are single-hooved (ungulate) mammals and are basically domesticated wild horses. Their anatomy enables them to make use of speed to escape predators and they have a well-developed sense of balance and a strong fight-or-flight instinct. Related to this need to flee from predators in the wild is an unusual trait: They are able to sleep both standing up and lying down. They reach full adult development by age five, and have an average lifespan of between 25 and 30 years. Some wild horse populations remain on Celestia, but they are getting more rare since they are fairly easy to domesticate.
Equidae are herbivores. They feed primarily on a wide variety of grasses and fruits from certain trees.
Equidae form into extended family herds in the wild.
