June 1 (hypothesized) 10,000BC  Domesticated Animals

While domestic horses may have first appeared on the Eurasian steppes, it’s important to note that the horse originated in the Americas, not in Europe or Asia. They traveled from North America to Asia across the Bering Strait. There is significant evidence that wild horses never completely died out in the Americas, and that the wild horses still found in the West (although they are being persecuted) are their descendants. Thanks for an interesting article.
