Prague save rare species of horses

The owner of horses has been bankrupt and Prague decided to buy them, because they afraid that the bloodline of horses would be weaken and disappear. The horses are Huculs and their line leads unashamedly to wild mountain horses what were in Europe centuries ago.

The batch of horses have eleven mares and seven stallions. The cost of horses is between 12 to 55 thousand crowns. Prague wants to safe this natural heritage, because hucul horses were used in army during World War but their need disappeared during years. The world has only about a thousand of horses.

Prague wants to add them to rescue breeding programme of Prague Zoo where are now Przewalskeho horses. The adding will take about three years and the horses will be used for hypo therapy until the date.
