Saw some fascinating behavior from the galops today at the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls. I wonder if anyone here knows the history? They have three animals, at least two are males based on behavior. Two are pretty lumpy, one fairly smooth. All three have back leg problems, two worse than the smallest one. Outdoor enclosure is about 100’ x 40’. It’s larger then many I’ve seen. I wonder if their winter enclosed is tiny and they get little exercise in the winter? Does anyone know how long they’ve been there, where they came from?

Wow, thats sad when a zoo has such bad conditioned animals. That one is really weirdly pyramided.
Hopefully they got them in that condition, the leg issues and are working on getting them better.
