rare wild horses

Wild horses from Poland and Belarus were re-introduced to the Loch of Strathbeg in Scotland help manage the habitat. Pretty cool story.

“Koniks love eating rank tussocky vegetation and we have lots of it at Strathbeg. Currently we have to artificially strip it away to ensure our wetlands remain in top condition, but now, thanks to the grazing habits of these horses, we can ditch the machines and get back to a natural approach to habitat management.”
