The Mongolian horse is the native horse breed of Mongolia. The breed is purported to be largely unchanged since the time of Genghis Khan. Nomads living in the traditional Mongol fashion still hold more than 3 million animals which outnumber the country's human population. Despite their small size they are horses not ponies. In Mongolia the horses live outdoors all year (at 30°C in summer down to -40°C in winter) and search for food on their own.
