Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Heihe is a breed of horse that originates from the Heilongjiang River basin in China. Along the boundary between China and the former Soviet Union there is a long river basin called Heilongjiang. Heihe city is the center of the Heihe horse breeding region. Beyond the forest/tundra to the north, the terrain is hilly with an altitude of 1,640 to 3,300 feet and a gradual slope. The area is rich in water resources. Average temperature is near 32F, with the minimum about -58F and the maximum in summer about 89F. Horses are absolutely necessary for both agriculture and transport in this area. The Heihe developed on the basis of Soulun and Mongolian stock. In the Longsha summary it was recorded that prior to the seventeenth century the Heihe area was occupied by the Soulun nation, which was connected to the Manchu. To enforce defense, the Qing government sent a large regiment of cavalry there that contained many Mongolian horses.show more
