Przewalski’s Horse Foal Born One in 2,000 endangered horse born | Zoos Victoria It’s a life of learning and play for Werribee Open Range Zoo’s new male Przewalski’s Horse foal, Tsagaan, who was welcomed into the world and his herd less than six weeks ago. Born during the night on May 7th to first-time-mum Hatan and dad Ronald, Tsagaan has been settling in to life well with his playmate Saikhan, a female born in December last year. “They’re having a really good time learning how to be horses together,” said keeper Linda Gardiner. “Tsagaan’s got the whole herd looking out for him so he doesn’t have a trouble in the world. He’s growing stronger and more confident by the day.” Typically, Przewalski's Horses inhabited grassy deserts and plains in Western Mongolia. This environment is replicated at Werribee Open Range Zoo, with piles of sand dotted around the enclosure. “The sand is something for them to roll in for skin and coat care,” Ms Gardiner said. “It’s also an alternative sleeping substrate which they like playing in, too.” A visit to Werribee Open Range Zoo provides a rare opportunity to see this animal on the Zoo’s Safari Tours, which are included in general entry.
