Przewalski’s Horse

Przewalski’s horse foals are able to stand and walk an hour after birth, but don’t begin to graze until a few weeks later.

An hour after birth, Przewalski’s horse foals are able to stand and walk. Foals are usually born at night and by morning are able to travel with the herd.

Foals begin grazing within a few weeks but continue to nurse for eight to 13 months.
