When Elijah is talking to Elena about his past, he points to a field and says that there used to be wild horses that grazed there about 1000 ago near the Indian village. However, horses went extinct in North America about 10,000 years ago, and weren't re-introduced by Spanish "Conquistadores" until the 16th century.
After Damon turns Abby into a vampire, Esther and Finn disappear from the inside of the circle. Klaus, Kol and Elijah are standing next to one another outside of the circle. A moments later, when the flames go out, Kol is standing in the middle of the circle.
