Tarpan is an extinct form of the wild horse that was found west of the Urals. The eastern subspecies is the Przewalski’s horse, the only remaining wild horse. This horse was saved from extinction and got settled down in Mongolia and China.
In the 1930s, experiments were carried out in the Hellabrunn Zoo (Munich) to breed horses from original domestic horses. The breeding goals of “short skull with a flour nose”, “mouse-grey fur with an eel line” and “zebra striping” on the ankles were achieved, but the new domestic animal breed lacks the “standing mane” typical of wild horses. Even with the best breeding methods, animals once exterminated cannot be brought back.
