"Horses have evolved" is a shorthand, to my mind, for something like
"Horses (of the present day) arise from an (interesting) evolutionary historic process", which is applicable to any individual horse. I think "Horses are evolved animals" might have much the same sense.

I don't think so. A species evolves, not individual specimens of the species.
