This letter was sent to VNIIK on October 14, 2018, and was published by them this week. It is an open letter addressing the plight of the endangered Budenny horses at First Cavalry Army Stud. While many of the elements of the letter were reproduced in this year's annual bulletin, I thought I would share the original source since it is apparently garnering some attention in Russian social media. Please share.
Here is the North American Budenny Horse Registry's Annual Bulletin for 2018. We are celebrating ten years of breed promotion. This issue discusses the current status of Budennies in the USA, our 2019 Board of Directors, recent news about the First Cavalry Army Stud in Russia, and new opportunities for AI (artificial insemination).
