Preparations for the arrival of rare Przewalski wild horses at a new sanctuary are underway, as workers remove poisonous plants and erect around four kilometres of wooden fences.
These horses were hunted to the brink of extinction before their value to the environment was understood.
People who've worked with Przewalski horses say they're wilder and shyer than other free roaming horses, and more dangerous when cornered.
To me they look like cave paintings come alive.
Now THAT would make a great story...

Mrs. Terri you took the words right out of my imagination.. that would be a champion story to create.. im thinking about it right now. Thanks for the idea!! I think they are gorgous. The cave paintings that people did thousands of years ago could of been of the very breed of horse we see today... not everything "dies out" as said by an evolution theory.
Yay! I love Przewalskis! They're so beautiful. Great picture too!
OH and it looks like that little foal is backtalking the horse on the right that's putting its ears back LOL
