  • "As a pilot trial to try to bring back grasses and banish mosses, in 1989 Zimov brought two dozen Yakutian horses about 240 miles east to Cherskii. This breed, the closest descendants of the horses that lived in Siberia during the Pleistocene, can put on a thick layer of body fat during the summer and fall that gets them through the harsh winter."
