Domestication of the horse took place 5-6,000 years ago, near the end of the Neolithic period. It is almost certain that it first took place in Eurasia, through the nomadic Aryan tribes, around the Black and Caspian Seas. It is from this point in the history of the world that the existence of truly wild horses begins to decline; their place taken by domestic stock. Horses are located all over the world, depending on their location and the traits they poses; they have all since been given specific breeds. The closest living relative to the horses of today is the Asiatic Wild Horses.
Researchers found that this small animal was the earliest known horse, living 50-60 million years ago. I will also be talking about the Miohippus, which lived shortly after the Eohippus. Other ancestors of the Eohippus are the Mesohippus, Neohipparion and other forms from which the horse has evolved from. I was also go over how they’re teeth have changed and how this affects their diet. I hope this helps you appreciate and understand horses better.
The Assyrians tried to get as many horses as they could (Ancient Egypt: Farmed and domesticated animals). The domestication of dogs, goats, cattle, horses and even other animals we have today, was a gradual process. Animal domestication positively impacted people long ago. It caused economic, social, cultural and political changes. Many people today own animals that were domesticated long ago (Mammals and Humans: Domesticated animals and commensals
One of his strong character traits is his adaptability, he is very flexible with his customers, and adapts to their lifestyles. James Herriot’s most endearing quality is his deep passion and concern for his patients. James Herriot has a tremendous memory of all the signs, symptoms, medications, diseases, and sicknesses concerning animals. This helps him very much throughout his career. He remembers thinking to himself about a horse reference book, “I had gone through it so often in my mind final year that I could recite stretches of it like poetry.”(1) He is able to deduct a patient’s problem without even needing an x-ray, or anything of that sort.
Finally, riding horses is not just a hobby or a sport, but an action of your heart. Horses are wondrous creatures that have lived with man or thousands of years. Horses are not just beasts to take care of, there are benefits to owning them, riding them, or even just being around them. You will of course learn to love horses, and they will probably love you, too, if you treat them kindly. Similarly, you learn the responsibility of being around horses and how to take care of them properly.
Around 7000 BC cats became pets and cattle became domesticated. Many pack animals, such as donkeys, began being used around 4000 BC. In ancient Mesopotamia animal husbandry was one of the main factors in the making of civilizations. Domestication allowed people to liv... ... middle of paper ... ...." - New World Encyclopedia.

Even if you do not know what an Appaloosa horse is you can almost bet you have seen one. Throughout history they have come and gone through different cultures appearing in Asian, European, and Native American art. Nobody is completely sure how the breed came about but there are some definable traits found around the world in other breeds, such as the Russian Altai and different Spanish horses. The Nez Perce tribe, from the western states, was the first to domesticate these animals and also the first to practice selective breeding. The Nez Perce trained the Appaloosa for many tasks such as hunting, farming, travel, and war.
These animals are raised or rehabilitated in exhibits. not unlike their real homes, and then released into their natural habitat when they are ready to move on. There are many situations in which animals need help and a zoo is able to provide them with it. A few situations would include the head-start program which gives the animal a greater survival chance than those born in the natural habitat by giving vaccines and proper diagnosis and care; zoos take care of animals who have been seriously ill or injured in a hunting incident or just an accident in general. According to the AZA, “The last 18 black-footed ferrets were placed in the care of AZA-accredited institutions.
Wang et al. (2013) suggested that domestication of dogs may have been a continuous process beginning with commensal living and hunting between humans and scavenging wolves that were excluded from hunting packs. A series of evolutionary events selecting for genes in dogs, as well as parallel selection of genes in humans and dogs, lead to the modern day fully domest... ... middle of paper ... ...on phenotypic traits were more intense for breeding programs compared to behaviour traits. Conclusion: Dog domestication origin appears to be highly complex and can still not be fully understood from a genetics perspective. Geographic origin of dog domestication as somewhere in southeastern Asia, and Chinese Native dogs most closely related to ancestral dogs was a consistent finding among researchers (Wang et al.
To Andy Vidak, Cloning can have huge benefits in today’s society. Cloning could benefit multiple types of people, and can also benefit animals. In today’s society,has a lot to bring to the table. For example, animals could be clones to produce products that we use today, or products that we need to survive. What i mean by this is that cloned animals still can have the benefits that a natural animal would have.
