Wild horses have roamed the planet for many years. It is believed that all horses alive today originated from a group of horses domesticated by humans around 5500 years ago. Wild horses have always been a symbol of freedom and adventure with a sense of romance In today’s podcast we learn the hierarchy of the herd, from how long that stallion stays to what happens to the colts and fillies. If you have never seen a wild horse in person there are lots of places in the USA and Canada where you can.
