2014 was a record breaking year for foals; there were 19 in total (10 at Seer and 9 in Villaret). Unfortunately, the Mongolian herd was hit by an exceptionally high mortality due, in large part, to an anthrax epidemic. This bacteria occurs naturally and outbreaks from time to time in Mongolia and elsewhere.

In Le Villaret, we hit and even surpassed our pasture's carrying capacity of 40 horses. As we do not feed the horses, we need quite a bit of space for relatively few individuals. So, our solution was to send the horses to a suitable site in northeast Spain where the horses will continue to live in semi-free conditions.
