Here's a group of articles about the mystery of the horse in America.
And so, the investigation continues. Yes, there're still other promising leads besides the ones I've made available on this page already. The truth is out there. But it usually takes time to dig it out...
And here's an interesting link to Pony Boy's web site. He is a Native American author and educator who is trying to bring out the Native traditions of horse rearing as he received them from his people. He writes about this in his recent book.

Here's a picture of a very unusual "Przewalski horse".
This wild horse is still found in Mongolia. It is so different, it has 66 chromosomes as compared to the 64 that we find in all other horses. This is a very primitive kind of horse, the one probably quite similar to what the ancient peoples first domesticated. (Nevertheless, some researchers believe that it represents a whole different species as compared to our domesticated horses.)
