Where is it located?
The Andes, between Chile and Argentina
In Chilean and Argentine Patagonia, Bagual is the name given to the equine animal that has become a wild animal or feral, that is, it has become wild avoiding human presence. These are specimens of domestic origin that have become free due to an eventuality, or animals generated in the wild. The latter is the case of most of the herds of Patagonian Baguales, which have a historical origin with abundant documentary records since the 18th century.
Generally, the Baguales inhabit little frequented plains, steep mountains or impenetrable forests. With the intention of supporting conservation initiatives, we work with Estancia 3R, which aims to preserve this breed in its Baguales Horse Sanctuary program.
Preservation of the breed in the Baguales Horse Sanctuary
Fossils of plants, mammals and Nothofagus
The Sierra Baguales mountain range contains a series of depressions formed by glacial erosion. Many of these depressions developed in the Pleistocene period, from isolated glaciers that existed separately from ice caps further west.
The Sierra Baguales rocks belong to several formations of the Magallanes Basin. These rocks contain fossils of marine plants, mammals and invertebrates, as well as fossils of Nothofagus.
