american muscle car, 1 hp relates to energy of 1 race horse
Big rig Diesel, 1 hp relates to 1 Clydesdale
import, 1 hp relates to 1 miniture pony

To determin the amount of torque each can provide, divide the weight of each animal by 4 to get the foot-pound number.

In the case of the Mustang, 1 hp relates to one stallion and to determine the torque divide the weight by 2 since it can stand on two legs.

It is only the driver that can be related to the mule (word starts with Jack), especially when they think thier mintiture pony can take on a stallion.
