Extinction is forever...
The time has come to stop thinking of horses like the Carolina Marsh Tacky as a "rare" novelty and begin looking at them as an endangered animal.
Many Americans have no idea that so many historical horse, pony and donkey breeds teeter on the brink of extinction. North America has viable breeding populations of over 25 different such breeds. Some are foreign and some are pure American. Sheer numbers will not save them. It requires sound breeding practices and good stewardship to keep the gene pools viably diverse and the breeds usefully productive.
As we begin to build individual breed pages over the summer of 2008, we invite you to browse our site and learn about the various breeds. Find out how each is unique, how these breeds are anything but museum pieces, and why they are endangered.
Most importantly, learn how you might become involved as an owner, future breeder, volunteer or financial supporter of some of the rarest equines in the world.IRS 501(c)(3) Approval
