^ this.Pfffffb Equis scotti died off 8000 years ago and were never riden. Yes the horse evoled here just like lions. Do you hear of any oral history of lions?
Sorry, mitochondrial DNA analysis conclusively links modern horses in NA to Spain, and from there back to the Arabs. In the wayback, critters could get from what now seems like improbable Point A to Point B because the terrain was different. But the last million years or so are pretty fixed and well understood.
I can't even go there. Too crazy and disgusting.I understand that.
That's why I said 'could'; from the video people are trying to learn if tribal stories do equal up to facts. That the dates of known horse interaction conflict with already common knowledge brings up serious questions.
For me, I'm for the 'earlier' horses were back in NA, the better considering how horribly wild horses are treated in a lot of BLM places and how horses and burros are mismanaged when left out on the range. If they are in NA earlier, it'd be more reason to push for a chance in the status of wild horses. Right now they're not considered properly "Wild" even after so long. There's this "oh because the Spanish released them, they're not native" when actually they were and are, the Spanish - according to history as it is currently - just reintroduced them back onto the NA continent.
The big problem is that there are ranchers who see the horses as 'pests', and there's big money in round ups - and who cares if horses die - and in the meat market still. Meanwhile rare bloodlines of pure Spanish breeding are dying out due to BLM's horrible practices when the lines should be conserved.
Yup and we invented pants to go along with riding horses. That must have scared the living shit out of Mediterranean people like Greeks who had legends of half man half horse creatures.Web2012-05-08 · Archaeological evidence suggests horses were tamed in the western part of the Eurasian Steppe (Ukraine, southwest Russia and west Kazakhstan).
