just cause I thought it was intersting, I'd like to introduce the "Duelmener wild horses". They're actually not 100% wild, but a group of ~300 horses that live freely in an evironemtal protection zone in Germany (actually, the area is primarily protected to keep the breed alive). They're on the list of endangered breed.
The entire herd is captured yearly on the last Saturday in May, and the yearling colts are caught (on foot) and auctioned off, which is a pretty traditional event in that region.
The breeding stallions are left with the mares from May to September (in order to synchronize the birth of the foals).
They're a very traditional breed, mostly grullo/grulla and dun colored, sturdy little ponies (between 1.25 and 1.35m), and most of the ones that are sold are used for driving and as kids ponies.
There are some breedings of domestic ones (i.e. both parents have "owners"), in which case they're not called "Duelmener wild horses" anymore, but just "Duelmener".
Just thought it was a neat breed, and don't think anyone has mentioned them on here before.

"Pinocchio" - auctioned off in 1995 and goes L/M dressage (which is about Level 3)
