Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Sir William Ridgeway, 05 March 1903

Identifier: Coll-14/9/9/29

Scope and Contents

Ridgeway thanks Ewart for a block that he has lent him and says that he is at last returning Salensky's paper. He states that he is gratified to find that the tarpan is an original wild Equid and not a feral horse. He asks if Ewart has any data about Cossack ponies, which he supposes are more or less mixed like the Shetlands, and wonders if Ewart has any questions about Barbary horses for Walter Harris, with whom Ridgeway has been in touch. He then goes on to mention early Greek sources for the existence of the reindeer in central Europe, and makes observations about the Somali ass with zebra-like stripings.
