The Brumby Research Unit who produced this DVD is a group of Australian scientists with the sole purpose of improving the well being of the horse. Heading this research, are Chris Pollitt, BVsc, PhD and Brian Hampson, PhD who have been studying the desert brumbies, the feral horses that have survived in the dry heart of Australia since the 1870s. In this DVD they investigate their habits, through the use of GPSs and determine the effects of a free roaming lifestyle and lack of human intervention on foot morphology and health. It shows exquisitely the adaptation of the foot to different environments.
Narrated poetically by Dr Chris Pollitt, and accompanied by breathtaking photography, this DVD describes objectively what they observed. You will be amazed!
Buying their DVD is a way to support their ongoing research.
