    These are Asian wild horses, which - in honor of a Russian explorer - are also called "Przewalski horses". In the nature reserve Tennenloher Forst, they fulfill the task of landscape conservation by keeping open the important for numerous animal and plant species sandy grasslands and the heathland through their grazing. Meanwhile, she supports a herd of peacock goats (Figure 4), which can eat as ruminants and shrubs that are inedible for horses.
    Some horses are to be reintroduced in their home in Central Asia.

    Since 2003, the valuable sandy habitats in the nature reserve "Tennenloher Forst" are grazed to preserve the valuable sandy grasslands and heaths.
    Currently, Przewalski stallions from Hellabrunn Zoo and Nuremberg Zoo graze the area as well as peacock goats.
    Przewalski horses are very frugal in the feed. You can feed on the sparse growth on the sandy areas throughout the year. The strong sunlight in summer and the cold in winter can not harm these robust animals. As a shelter, they use groups of trees that not only provide shade, but also protect the animals in harsh weather.

    @ Bee: That's right! It is a pure bachelor club, because a battle for the mares could cause too many problems.

    The Tennenloher forest, near Erlangen is one of the largest sandy biotopes in Bavaria and is under conservation.
    It is a former military site. The warning signs indicating that you should not leave the paths should be noted because unfortunately could still be explosives in the ground.
    Since 2013, the Przewalski horses have received support from a small group of goats who are used as "landscape keepers".
    The "Przewalski horse", also known as Asian wild horse or Mongolian wild horse is the last, original wild horse that has survived to this day in this original form.

    In spite of all this: the wild horses are not nocturnal animals!
