The domestic and the wild in the Mongolian horse and the takhi

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Against a strong head wind we reached this almost flat plateau, at a height of 6,800 ft., and immediately saw, a few kilometers off, a group of animals galloping away from us at full speed. My Mongolian companion, Namkhajdorj Balgan, recognised them at once with the naked eye as Przewalski wild horses, and subsequent observation with a telescope confirmed beyond any possible doubt that this was what they were ... We followed them for about six or eight miles over quite open ground and observed them by telescope until they disappeared (Kaszab, 1966: 346).
