cumsoline said Bad-ass. The Mongols also preferred to use mares over male ponies/mules/whatever because they could get dat milk, too.
Blood and milk…nourishment all the way.
I remember in grade school, there was this Mongolian girl in my class. She traced her family line all the way back to Genghis Khan, kind of like great grandpa x5 or something? I don’t know. I didn’t believe her at first but then later in college I learned about Genghis Khan’s sexual and DNA conquests. It’s estimated 16 million people on Earth can trace their ancestry to him.
