I dunno why people were living in Siberia way back when enough that they decided to import horses. Like…you’re early humans or at least 800 year ago humans…you got a whole planet to live on…why did you choose the freezer?

Yakutian Laika is a dog breed from this same area, they can also withstand very cold temps! I actually own one and he is a fluffy monster 🤣

94f below zero? God damn! How do they know this to be true? Does it ever get that cold in Siberia?

Its trick for surviving such cold is to pull a reverse TaunTaun and crawl inside their rider
