In early March, the coordinator for Traditional Culture and Biocultural Diversity of BIO-KG FOUNDATION Sultan Sarygulov paid a planned visit to the aimags of Talas and Naryn regions.
The coordinator of the BIO-KG FOD, Sultan Sarygulov, held meetings with local farmers in Talas within the framework of the Aboriginal Horse project for monitoring purposes. He discussed with local horse breeders the livestock in pastures, a double increase in their diet and the formation of the composition of two separate shoals (herd).
The mentioned project aimed to restore the Kyrgyz horse, which has unique properties of endurance and fertility.
Aboriginal horse breeds are those breeds that were bred by man with a low level of scientific approach, but with a great influence of the natural conditions in which the breed was formed.
The Kyrgyz aboriginal horse has been significantly influenced by Mongolian and partly eastern horse breeds. Kyrgyz horses have a pronounced pack type: a short, often deer neck, massive elongated trunk with underdeveloped withers and a straight strong back, drooping croup, short rather dry limbs, very strong hooves. The suit is diverse, most often there are bay and gray horses. Horses are hardy and unpretentious.
