Wow, I think, there has to be a story behind that.
So I check. There are wild horses in Hawaii, Fiji, American Samoa, Indonesia and just about everywhere else. The Kathaiwari breed, with their distinctly pointed ears, came from wild horses in Kathiawar, India. With the exception of Przewalski’s horse, which may of have always been wild, the story is the same. Settlers brought horses with them; lost them or turned them loose. Those that survived, formed herds and ran free.
