I was really pleased to have seen these. they are beautiful animals, smaller than a domesticated horse and with a much thicker coat which they would have needed in their original habitat. They also have a long dark mane that runs to the base of the neck (see extras).
At one time extinct in the wild (in Mongolia, the last wild Przewalski's horses had been seen in 1966), it has been reintroduced to its native habitat in Mongolia at the Khustain Nuruu National Park, Takhin Tal Nature Reserve, and Khomiin Tal.
Most "wild" horses today, such as the American mustang or the Australian brumby, are actually feral horses descended from domesticated animals that escaped and adapted to life in the wild. Przewalski's horse may never have been domesticated and has long been considered the only true wild horse extant in the world today.
I have hopefully caught up on your journals and now need to tackle a few chores and then a chilled evening with a bit of luck. Yesterday was the closest I have come to pouring myself a glass of red wine, but I didn't and settled for some medjool dates that took the craving away.
I hope everyone is having a very Happy Valentines Day or Thursday as I call it.
