Zhaosu county is dubbed by Chinese people as the "Home to Horses from Heaven". Normally, these horses are fed in stables. But herdsmen occasionally release them to run on the vast grassland to exercise their bodies, which has gradually become one of the main attractions for tourists. In winter, the local government regularly gathers these horses together to form a grand scene the majestic creatures thundering across the grassland.
