Friday Feature: Preservation (Equine)

This week’s letter is P. If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Office Administration (Equine).

Przewalski's Horse.In primary school I had a great fascination with the Quagga (a now extinct member of the equus family).  In highschool this moved onto Przewalski’s horse and later in life, I discovered a chance to work in Mongolia and help to preserve this breed in the wild.

Many breeders today work to preserve a particular bloodline, or promote and preserve a new breed that has been established via many generations of breeding the same type of horse.  For me, the idea of helping to preserve a breed that is declining in numbers would be an exciting thing!  Or even helping to manage and preserve a ‘wild’ breed, such as the American Mustang or the Australian Brumby.

This form of equine related work and research may involve:

  • travel
  • observing equine routines
  • establishing natural habitat
  • restraining and medicating horses
  • tracking particular horses
  • holding for the short term and breeding before releasing into a ‘natural’ habitat

The work in itself could be demanding but very rewarding.  Imagine watching the numbers increase over the years of a breed that was nearing the endangered species list!
