“This was a big surprise,” said the study's co-author, Sandra Olsen, from the University of Kansas, before admitting that the lack of remaining wild horses on earth was “the sad part.” “The world lost truly wild horses perhaps hundreds, if not thousands of years ago, but we are only just now learning this fact, with the results of this research,” said Olsen.

Another of the report's authors, archaeologist Alan Outran from Britain's University of Peter, said the Przewalski's horse, named after a Russian who described them in the 19th century, is relatively small and stocky. The study was conducted at two sites in northern Kazakhstan, where scientists found the earliest proof of horse domestication, going back more than 5,000 years.

“This means that we must continue the search for the true ancestors of modern breeds by gathering samples from places like Ukraine, western Russia, Hungary, Poland and that region,” Olsen said. New genetic research has revealed that the world’s wild horses went extinct hundreds, if not thousands, of years ago.

Scientists found that an assumed wild breed, native to Mongolia, were actually domesticated horses. There are roughly 2,000 take in the world right now, and the largest number of them live at Hastie National Park, within 60 miles of Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar.

Since 1996, the Amur leopard has been classified by the IUCN as Critically Endangered with less than 70 individuals thought to exist today. Evidence suggests North America was the hardest hit by extinctions.

It survived only because the Bering land bridge that once connected Alaska and Siberia had enabled animals to cross into Asia and spread west. Horse meat has a slightly sweet taste reminiscent of a combination of beef and venison.

Scientists estimate that 150-200 species of plant, insect, bird and mammal become extinct every 24 hours. This is nearly 1,000 times the “natural” or “background” rate and, say many biologists, is greater than anything the world has experienced since the vanishing of the dinosaurs nearly 65 m years ago.

Production of the remaining crops would likely continue without bees with only slightly lower yields. So if honeybees did disappear for good, humans would probably not go extinct (at least not solely for that reason).

It’s somewhat of a human hallmark, making other species extinct, although we’ve kept cows around for both food and leather. All the world's wild horses have gone extinct, according to a study Thursday that unexpectedly rewrites the horse family tree based on a new DNA analysis of their ancestry.

“This was a big surprise,” said co-author Sandra Olsen, curator-in-charge of the archeology division of the Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum at the University of Kansas. The study is based on archaeological work at two sites in northern Kazakhstan, called Bowie and Rainy YAR, where scientists have found the earliest proof of horse domestication, going back more than 5,000 years.

According to Beth Shapiro, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California Santa Cruz, the findings are “fascinating.” Przewalski's horses are considered an endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The round-bellied, short legged, reddish brown to beige horses roamed Central Asia, Europe and China in prehistoric times. “Current models suggest that all modern domesticated horses living now descend from those first tamed in Bowie, in the north of present-day Kazakhstan,” said a statement from the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) scientist Ludovic Orlando.

Horses are wonderful animals that have served humans from time immemorial. They have helped them cultivate land, build houses, wage wars, and transport things for centuries.

In the era of technology, we’re less reliant on them, and they’re gradually replaced by cars, planes, and different equipment. Horses history goes back a long way and far exceeds that of their relationships with humans.

The propalaeotherium, the most ancient and known form of the horse, was a relatively small animal with rudimentary hoofs. They lived in Western Europe and Asia and became extinct more than 30 million years ago.

By taking over more and more space for their agricultural activities, people forced horses to displace, which usually led to their death. Many species of horses that until recently inhabited certain areas of our planet completely disappeared due to the onslaught of human civilization.

About 200 years ago, tartans lived all over the European continent, but now this is an extinct horse species. They were gray-brown with large erect ears, curly mane, and a short tail.

So, when people started to hunt them using domesticated horses, they were quickly exterminated. Because of the development of agriculture, tartans could not find an area where they could safely live.

The remains of this horse were found near the town of German (USA), so it was named accordingly. These wild horses are thought to have gone extinct about 10,000 years ago due to climate change.

It was stocky and had straight shoulders, a thick neck, and a narrow skull. This horse probably lived in the meadows and floodplains 3 million years ago.

Wild quangos lived in Africa and disappeared over 100 years ago. At present, a group of scientists from the South African Republic are working on herding these animals.

They were not able to travel long distances and couldn’t jump because of their weak heart. The height of these horses ranged from 5.5 to 6.5 feet in the withers, and their weight was approximately 2,200 lbs.

Przewalski’s horses living in zoos became accustomed to man, and they are unlikely to survive in their natural habitat. They are incredibly hardy as they are accustomed to continuously searching for food in arid areas where it is particularly scarce in winter.

Now, experts are trying to take care of rare breeds of horses by creating special conditions for them and protecting them by law. All the world’s free-roaming horses, such as mustangs in the USA, have a history of domestication, and none are descended from wild animals.

Just as the Narragansett Pacer (#4 below) is associated with George Washington, so is the slightly earlier Norfolk Trotter inextricably entangled with the reign of King Henry VIII.

In the mid-16th century, this monarch ordered England's nobles to maintain a minimum number of trotting horses, presumably to be mobilized in the event of war or insurrection. Fossil specimens of the American Zebra (all of them discovered in German, Idaho) date to about three million years ago, during the late Pliocene epoch.

The Chinese won, and, according to at least one account, demanded ten healthy Merchants for breeding purposes and a bounty of 3,000 additional specimens. In fact, the Narragansett Pacer was the first horse breed ever to be engineered in the United States, derived from British and Spanish stock shortly after the Revolutionary War.

While equine experts maintain that the Neapolitan has gone extinct (some of its bloodlines persist in the modern Lipizzaner), some people continue to confuse it with the similarly named Napolitana.

This equine had its roots in the Norman Conquest, in 1066, when European horses brought by William the Conqueror's armies interbred with English mares. Any Quangos that weren't immediately shot and skinned wound up being humiliated in other ways, exported for display in foreign zoos, used to herd sheep and even dragooned into pulling carts of gawking tourists in early 19th-century London.

The Syrian Wild Ass was one of the smallest modern equips yet identified at only about three feet high at the shoulder, and it was also notorious for its ornery, unnameable disposition. Presumably known to the Arabic and Jewish residents of the Middle East for millennia, this ass entered the western imagination via the reports of European tourists in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Shortly after the last Ice Age, about 10,000 years ago, the indigenous horses of North and South America went extinct, along with other mammalian megafauna. As huge debt as we owe to the Tarzan, that didn't prevent the last living captive specimen from expiring in 1909, and since then efforts to re-breed this subspecies backs into existence have met with dubious success.

For much of recorded history, the settled civilizations of Eurasia were terrorized by the nomadic peoples of the Steppes, Huns, and Mongols, to name two famous examples. Long story short, the Turbofan Horse was the mount favored by the Turkic tribes people, though as a military secret it was impossible to keep.

The end of the Pleistocene era, around 12,000 years ago, was coupled with a global cooling event and the extinction of many large mammals, particularly in North America. Since the most recent truly wild horse fossil dates to about 12,500 years ago, scientists had thought these animals died out before humans were a factor.

In the new study, researchers reevaluated some unreliable data used in previous calculations and determined that when gaps in the fossil record and radiocarbon dating errors are factored in, it is possible that humans and horses coexisted. “The fossil record's very incomplete, and just because the most recent remain is from 12,500 years ago, that doesn't mean that the horse became extinct at this time,” said study co-author Andrew Slow of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.

Przewalski's horse had reached the brink of extinction but was reintroduced successfully into the wild. The Tarzan became extinct in the 19th century, though it is a possible ancestor of the domestic horse; it roamed the steppes of Eurasia at the time of domestication.

However, other subspecies of Equus ferns may have existed and could have been the stock from which domesticated horses are descended. Since the extinction of the Tarzan, attempts to have been made to reconstruct its phenotype, resulting in horse breeds such as the König and Heck horse.

However, the genetic makeup and foundation bloodstock of those breeds is substantially derived from domesticated horses, so these breeds possess domesticated traits. The term wild horse” is also used colloquially in reference to free-roaming herds of feral horses such as the mustang in the United States, the crumby in Australia, and many others.

The latter two are the only never-domesticated wild groups that survived into historic times. However, other subspecies of Equus ferns may have existed.

In the Late Pleistocene epoch, there were several other subspecies of E.ferns which have all since gone extinct. The exact categorization of Equus' remains into species or subspecies is a complex matter and the subject of ongoing work.

Studies using ancient DNA, as well as DNA of recent individuals, suggest the presence of two equine species in Late Pleistocene North America, a cabal line species, suggested being nonspecific with the wild horse, and Haringtonhippus Francisco, the “New World stilt-legged horse”; the latter has been taxonomically assigned to various names, and appears to be outside the grouping containing all extant equines.

Currently, three subspecies that lived during recorded human history are recognized. One subspecies is the widespread domestic horse (Equus ferns Catullus), as well as two wild subspecies: the recently extinct Tarzan (E. f. ferns) and the endangered Przewalski's horse (E. f. przewalskii).

Genetically, the pre-domestication horse, E. f. ferns, and the domesticated horse, E. f. Catullus, form a single homogeneous group (clade) and are genetically indistinguishable from each other. The genetic variation within this clade shows only a limited regional variation, with the notable exception of Przewalski's horse.

Besides genetic differences, astrological evidence from across the Eurasian wild horse range, based on cranial and metacarpal differences, indicates the presence of only two subspecies in post glacial times, the Tarzan and Przewalski's horse. At present, the domesticated and wild horses are considered a single species, with the valid scientific name for the horse species being Equus ferns.

The wild Tarzan subspecies is E. f. ferns, Przewalski's horse is E. f. przewalskii, and the domesticated horse is E. f. Catullus. The rules for the scientific naming of animal species are determined in the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, which stipulates that the oldest available valid scientific name is used to name the species.

Previously, when taxonomists considered domesticated and wild horse two subspecies of the same species, the valid scientific name was Equus Catullus Linnaeus 1758, with the subspecies labeled E. c. Catullus (domesticated horse), E. c. ferns Border, 1785 (Tarzan) and E. c. przewalskii Polio, 1881 (Przewalski's horse). However, in 2003, the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature decided that the scientific names of the wild species have priority over the scientific names of domesticated species, therefore mandating the use of Equus ferns for the horse, independent of the position of the domesticated horse.

Przewalski's horse occupied the eastern Eurasian Steppes, perhaps from the Urals to Mongolia, although the ancient border between Tarzan and Przewalski's distributions has not been clearly defined. Przewalski's horse was limited to Dzungaria and western Mongolia in the same period, and became extinct in the wild during the 1960s, but was reintroduced in the late 1980s to two preserves in Mongolia.

Although researchers such as Maria Gimbals theorized that the horses of the Paleolithic period were Przewalski's, more recent genetic studies indicate that Przewalski's horse is not an ancestor to modern domesticated horses. However, it was subsequently suggested that Przewalski's horse represent feral descendants of horses belonging to the Bowie culture.

Przewalski's horse is still found today, though it is an endangered species and for a time was considered extinct in the wild. Roughly 2000 Przewalski's horses are in zoos around the world.

A small breeding population has been reintroduced in Mongolia. As of 2005, a cooperative venture between the Zoological Society of London and Mongolian scientists has resulted in a population of 248 animals in the wild.

However, the offspring of Przewalski and domestic horses are fertile, possessing 65 chromosomes. For instance, when the Spanish reintroduced the horse to the Americas, beginning in the late 15th century, some horses escaped, forming feral herds; the best-known being the mustang.

Similarly, the crumby descended from horses strayed or let loose in Australia by English settlers. Isolated populations of feral horses occur in a number of places, including Bosnia, Croatia, New Zealand, Portugal, Scotland and a number of barrier islands along the Atlantic coast of North America from Sable Island off Nova Scotia, to Cumberland Island, off the coast of Georgia.

In 1995, British and French explorers discovered a new population of horses in the Roche Valley of Tibet, unknown to the rest of the world, but apparently used by the local Samba people. It was speculated that the Roche horse might be a relict population of wild horses, but testing did not reveal genetic differences with domesticated horses, which is in line with news reports indicating that they are used as pack and riding animals by the local villagers.

These horses only stand 12 hands (48 inches, 122 cm) tall and are said to resemble the images known as “horse no 2” depicted in cave paintings alongside images of Przewalski's horse. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
