Into the Wild India: EPISODE 3

Wild Horses of the Himalayas

It's January on the Himalayan plateau, and winter has an icy grip on the landscape. Here, an old stallion faces the toughest year of his life. At 15-years-old, Dorje, a kiang or Tibetan wild ass, is no longer the powerful stallion he once was. Finding enough food to survive the harsh weather can be a struggle. When the snow finally gives way to summer, he faces a new challenge: outwit younger, stronger males in the battle to breed. This may be Dorje's last chance to sire offspring, so he must fight like his life depends on it.
