Features

in the Colours of the Gobi B

Stout Body Shape

The takhi’s colour ranges from yellowish to reddish-brown. Around the nostrils and the mouth there is a white coloration - the so called flour nose. Its body seems plump with a strong neck and heavy limbs.

The takhi’s mane stands upright. From the mane to the tail blends a dark dorsal stripe. Unlike the domestic horse, the takhi’s onset of the tail is prolonged downwards. The takhi sheds its fur – the short hair in summer is replaced by a longer one with very thick sub-wool in winter.

Larger number of chromosomes
The shoulder height of the wild horse ranges from 125 to 147 cm and it weighs between 240 and 300 kg. On the contrary to the domestic horse the Przewalski's Horse number of chromosomes is 66 instead of 64.

The Takhi’s habitats are the steppes and desert steppes of Asia. Takhis can be domesticated, but it is not possible to ride them.
