For over 40 years The Livestock Conservancy has worked to protect endangered livestock and poultry breeds from extinction. Although all rare breeds face challenges, it has become apparent that the recent market downturn has particularly impacted our equine breeds. Many horse and donkey breeds face the threat of extinction – more so today than at any other time in history. Thanks to the grant from the USA Equestrian Trust, the effort to stabilize equine breed decline and secure the remaining diversity began in 2017.
