Where did horses come from?

No votes yet

Finding when and where the horse was first domesticated is one of those bits of science that doesn't sound important but really is a revolution. Archaeologists in Kazakhstan hope they're on the trail towards an answer. Horses went from being wild terrors, to meat and milk animals, to a new sort of transportation. The milk aspect is especially important, and the team is looking for trace fats from the site as a proof of domestication. After all, no one would milk a wild horse.

Well, someone had to milk a wild cow at some point too.
