Several other students had already seen zebra on jogs or walks, but I had yet to see one in the wild. Then, on a sunset hike, we saw a group of wildebeest grazing on a hill, and next to them were some zebra. Of course, we would go on to have much closer zebra sightings, but this was still very memorable because it was my first one.

Description

The horse (Equus ferus caballus)[2][3] is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae. The horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed creature into the large, single-toed animal of today. Humans began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread by 3000 BC. Horses in the subspecies caballus are domesticated, although some domesticated populations live in the wild as feral horses. These feral populations are not true wild horses, as this term is used to describe horses that have never been domesticated, such as the endangered Przewalski's horse, a separate subspecies, and the only remaining true wild horse. There is an extensive, specialized vocabulary used to describe equine-related concepts, covering everything from anatomy to life stages, size, colors, markings, breeds, locomotion, and behavior.

Horses' anatomy enables them to make use of speed to escape predators and they have a well-developed sense of balance and a strong fight-or-flight response. Related to this need to flee from predators in the wild is an unusual trait: horses are able to sleep both standing up and lying down. Female horses, called mares, carry their young for approximately 11 months, and a young horse, called a foal, can stand and run shortly following birth. Most domesticated horses begin training under saddle or in harness between the ages of two and four. They reach full adult development by age five, and have an average lifespan of between 25 and 30 years.

Horse breeds are loosely divided into three categories based on general temperament: spirited "hot bloods" with speed and endurance; "cold bloods", such as draft horses and some ponies, suitable for slow, heavy work; and "warmbloods", developed from crosses between hot bloods and cold bloods, often focusing on creating breeds for specific riding purposes, particularly in Europe. There are more than 300 breeds of horse in the world today, developed for many different uses.

Horses and humans interact in a wide variety of sport competitions and non-competitive recreational pursuits, as well as in working activities such as police work, agriculture, entertainment, and therapy. Horses were historically used in warfare, from which a wide variety of riding and driving techniques developed, using many different styles of equipment and methods of control. Many products are derived from horses, including meat, milk, hide, hair, bone, and pharmaceuticals extracted from the urine of pregnant mares. Humans provide domesticated horses with food, water and shelter, as well as attention from specialists such as veterinarians and farriers. (Wikipedia)

Description

While looking for some hot springs off a dirt road off Highway 50, I saw several groups of wild burros (most were quite distant) including one with a young foal.

For anyone not familiar with burros in the western US, they were first brought here by the Spanish in the 1500's but with the discovery of gold in the mid-1800s large numbers were brought out by prospectors. Quite a few of these either escaped or where released, and today, feral populations are found in several western states.

Observación directa de un Tapir centroamericano, color negro con mancha blanca en el pecho. No se pudo fotografiar pues se descargo la cámara y me tuve que conformar con tomarle una foto a la huella que dejo sobre el camino. Se encontraba tomando agua en una aguada. Estaba herido de una pierna trasera pues cojeaba al caminar-correr. Aparentemente macho adulto.
