Question 3 Explanation: 
The theory behind a statue of a solider on horseback: if the horse is depicted with one hoof off the ground - the soldier was wounded in battle (and may have died later from the wounds); Two raised hooves indicate that the soldier died in battle. If the statue shows all four hooves on the ground, the rider survived all battles unharmed and died of old age.However, this rule is not absolute, and many modern statues tend to go for the artistic rather than the symbolic.
