My World Tuesday: Yakutia/ Russian horse whip: "deybiir" (pronounced as 'day-bee-r').


I have been visiting my Yakutia friend frequently and she has told me a lot of this Russian State.

By 2012 Yakutia will be the native land of all Russian horses

ImageBy 2012 livestock of horses in Yakutia is going to be 80% of entire horses population in Russia - stated Roman Dmitriev, the head of Minselkhoz (the Ministry of Agriculture), on Monday at the conference with the President of the republic Vyacheslav Shtyrov.

According to him, since 2006, herd horse breeding, as the leading traditional branch of stock raising in the republic, is included in priority national project “Development of APK” and as a separate subsection - into the state development program of agriculture of Russian Federation during the years 2008-2012.
