Хустайн нуруунаа

in Khustai mountain
a foal of takhi whinnying –
shooting star 


  1. This is lovely. Is Takhi the wild horse? It looks as though it could be.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yeah, takhi is a wold horse, very rare animal. Thank you for your kind comment!

  3. Przewalski's horse (pronounced play /ʃɨˈvælski/ shə-VAL-skee or /zɨˈvɑːlski/ zə-VAHL-skee; Polish: [pʐɛˈvalski]; Equus ferus przewalskii, Mongolian: Тахь, Takhi) or Dzungarian horse, is a rare and endangered subspecies of wild horse (Equus ferus) native to the steppes of central Asia, specifically Mongolia.

    At one time extinct in the wild (in Mongolia, the last wild Przewalski's horses had been seen in 1966), it has been reintroduced to its native habitat in Mongolia at the Khustain Nuruu National Park, Takhin Tal Nature Reserve, and Khomiin Tal. The taxonomic position is still debated, and some taxonomists treat Przewalski's horse as a species, Equus przewalskii.

    Common names for this equine include Asian wild horse, Przewalski's Wild Horse,Mongolian wild horse, and Tahki. Historical but obsolete names include true tarpan[4] and Mongolian tarpan. The horse is named after the Russian geographer and explorer Nikolai Przhevalsky.

    Thanks for sharing your precious nature !

    1. Thank you very much for your kind information. There are 2 different kinds of the wild horse such as "тахь" and "хулан" in Mongolian Gobi.
