Horses and humans have an ancient relationship. Asian nomads probably
domesticated the first horses some 4,000 years ago, and the animals

remained essential to many human societies untile the advent of the engine.
Horses still hold a place of honor in many cultures, often linked to
heroic exploits in war.
There is only one species of domestic horse, but around 400 different breeds
that specialize in everything from pulling wagons to racing.
All horses are grazers.
While most horses are domestic, others remain wild. Feral horses are
the descendents of once-tame animals that have run free for generations.
Groups of such horses can be found in many places around the world.
Free-roaming North American mustangs, for example, are the
descendents of horses brought by Europeans more than 400 years ago.
Wild horses generally gather in groups of 3 to 20 animals.
A stallion (mature male) leads the group, which consists of mares (females)
and young foals. When young males become colts, at around two years
of age, the stallion drives them away. The colts then roam with other
young males until they can gather their own band of females.
The Przewalski's horse is the only truly wild horse whose ancestors were
never domesticated. Ironically, this stocky, sturdy animal exists today
only in captivity. The last wild Przewalski's horse was seen in
Mongolia in 1968. - National Geographic
