I first learned about this wild horse while studying the evolution of the equine species in a college biology class; I never thought I’d see let alone be this close to a real one. The Prezewalski or Dzungarian horse is a rare and endangered subspecies of wild horse native to the steppes of Central Asia. They are a stocky breed with sturdy legs quite the opposite of the horses we are used to seeing. These true wild horses were the first animals at The Wilds when it opened to the public in 1994 and are some beautiful creatures; their coats matched some of the fallen leaves around them.
Doesn’t this one look like it knows a secret and has a smug smile about it?
Goodbye and have a nice weekend.
