In poetry, literature, very important new findings have been found about the evolution of horse, which played an important role in the establishment or collapse of states in the historical process. According to the information obtained, it takes us back about 2 million years in terms of horse evolution. Some of the oldest DNA sequences have been obtained from mastodon and polar bear fossils, about 50,000 and 110,000 years old, respectively. Genome sequences obtained from horses were obtained from the foot bone of a horse that lived 780,000 to 560,000 years ago. The researchers found that the animal genome was incredibly similar to those of the 43,000-year-old horse, the genome structures of modern horses today, and the genome structures of the Przewalski horse.
