When I was a HS soph, long before salvation, my biology teacher, who was a devout Christian, held up our textbook on the 1st day of class & said, "This book says, among other things, that birds evolved from lizards. Now, that's asking a lot from a lizard-to replace its perfectly-functional scales with feathers, to reverse the bend of its limbs,(Note that a lizard's limbs bend the same direction as ours.) trade its jaws & teeth for a beak, & toughest of all, change its chemistry from cold-blooded to warm-blooded. There are no 'missing links' half-n-half on any of those things."
That little lecture has stuck with me ever since. Years later, knowing evolution is impossible, I wrote to the astronomer Carl Sagan, whom I admired, & who was a staunch evolutionist, explaining those facts to him. He never wrote me back. Hard to believe such a brilliant mind was closed to simple, basic FACTS. (Oh well; I had to program my PH.D neighbor's Tivo for him.)
Any evolutionists who read this: Please don't be as close-minded as Dr. Sagan was. Please ask yourselves how an animal (or plant) coulda "evolved" from such different "ancestors".
BTW, the Eohippus, the "dawn horse", was about the size of a Collie, with a toe on each side of each hoof reaching the ground, while the modern horse has only vestigial toes fused to the leg bones. But, if eohippus was around today, it could mate with a modern horse, if physically possible, & produce offspring. They're the same basic species they didn't "evolve' into modern horses.
