Namib Desert Horse
By Georgia McKeown
This prezi will tell you all you need to know about namib desert horses
Description of habitat
Description of the Namib Desert Horse
The normal colour for the namib desert horse is bay(a black mane and tail and a light brown coat) although there is a lot of chestnunt and brown horses. The horses are strong boned, muscular, athletic and clean limbed. There are many namib desert horses with dorsal striping (a black line running down the middle of there back).
Adaptations
The namib desert horse is able to go for long periods with out water.Unlike domestic horses the thirst causes very little stress. But in the hot summer month as much as they don't want to go they go to the drinking trough at Garub. The namib desert horse eats something apart from grass they eat dry manure by eating it they absorb undigested nutrients. During dry conditions the horses have to work for food they cover up ridiculously long distances feed whenever possible and occasionally play. When good rains bring forth good grass the horse adjust to a leisurely mode they eat at night and since there is no real need to travel long distances for grass they stay close to the drinking trough for longer periods
of time. At the trough regardless of the temperature they play and rest a lot.
Human impact
The namib desert horse has not had much humans now but millions and millions of years ago things were quite different humans actully raised, looked after and owned them that was before they went feral
The Namib Desert horse is found in the Namib desert of Namibia, Africa. It is very dry sandy isolated place and the Namib Desert Horse has adjusted to this hash climate very well.The Namib Desert is a coastle desert it is one of the oldest deserts in the world. Namib has sand sea 's in from the coast and a cold, clear ocean of the coast.
The Future
The future although dangerous is looking good for the namib desert horse since they don't pose a threat to other desert animals. So if humans keep the water trough at Garub and don't try to catch the horses they hopefully will survive for the rest of there lives
