Re: [RC] [Consider This] Horses were tamed a millennium earlier than previously thought - Sisu West Ranch

I shall be waiting for an article on this in my favorite magazine, Scientific American. They have published good articles on this subject before.

If it holds up, it is indeed important news. I don't buy the slender leg bone argument, but proper evidence of bit marks on teeth is indeed telling.

I sometimes amuse myself by thinking about how neat it must have been to be in the first tribe that knew how to ride! Running like the wind, you must have felt like you owned the world, not to mention being able to steal whatever you wanted from those who could only walk*.
