The horses used by the Ancient Mongolians, is relative to one of the only breeds that are still wild today. It is a stocky, pony-like animal. Their color is a tan that is called dun. Their neck and head are darker then the rest of the body, but the under part is a light cream color. The lower face and around the eyes are light cream color or even white. The legs, tail, and mane are dark brown or black and when summer it is darker then in the winter where it can be white. Their legs often have stripes on their legs like zebras and a dark brown stripe, which is called the dorsal, along the backbone. Some even have another stripe from the withers, which is the spot at the top of the horse’s shoulders. This is called a cross stripe and some donkeys have that too. They grow a new tails and manes every year. Their mane stands straight up which domestic horses don’t. They also don’t have bangs the other horse’s have. They can be sized males about an average of 54 to 58 inches tall from the ground to withers and the females about 48 to 55 inches from their withers to the ground. Przewalski’s head is rounder and is larger in comparison to the body then domestic horse. Their eyes are closer and higher on the head and the top lip sticks out a little farther then the bottom lip. Their back is straight like a zebra’s and they’re fore not a good animal to ride. It was tough and fast and could travel at a good speed and could travel long distances. It has a dense coat so that it could be protected by the cold in the winter and could find food beneath the snow on the ground. It was best for winter fighting. It was very obedient and was mild-tempered, even in the middle of a huge battle. They were extremely hard to tame and never learn to love their owners. The can be mean to the owner. Each Mongolian warrior had at least five hoses for him to ride. The soldier's closest ally was his horse. The Przewalki’s horse was first written about 1,000 years ago.
