The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute welcomed four endangered Przewalski’s (cha-VAL-ski) horse foals (affectionately referred to as P-horses) in spring. We need your help naming three colts!
The foals live in a herd with their mothers and are quickly growing into mature horses. They are very relaxed, but will quickly vocalize if they are not in visual contact of the herd. Despite being close in age and living together, the foals are developing distinct personalities.
Learn more about each colt below, and cast a vote for your three favorite names! The winning names will be announced on Monday, Aug. 13.
The results of this poll are not available.
Date of birth: March 23

Identifying characteristics: A classic, mocha-colored coat that fades to a very light beige on his legs and belly
Date of birth: April 30

Identifying characteristics: Mocha-colored with darker patches around his mouth and eyes
Date of birth: May 29
Personality: Indecisive and a tiny bit clumsy but tags along with the older foals
Identifying characteristics: Very pale brown with a slightly fuzzy coat that will grow out as he gets older
