Help bring home Wyoming's fossil dawn horse!

Help us bring home a one-of-a-kind sculpture of Eohippus, Wyoming's "Dawn Horse," to the UW Geological Museum. Eohippus, the earliest fossil horse in America, lived in Wyoming 55 million years ago, and its fossils are commonly found in the state of Wyoming. The UW Geological now has the exciting opportunity to bring this horse to life via an incredible museum-quality sculpture designed by paleoartist Reid Psaltis.

Horses are important to Wyoming culture and lifestyle, and it's only fitting that the earliest horses evolved right here in our state. Helping us to raise funds to purchase this one-of-a-kind sculpture will not only draw further attention to Wyoming's long tradition of horse habitation but will bring this 55-million-year-old horse back to life within our state. We know that it will be inspiring for Wyoming kids, adults, and other museum visitors as it finds a home at the University of Wyoming.

The UW Geological Museum is grateful to our friends and donors, future and past, for making us the wonderful museum that we are and keeping our doors open! With your help, we can't wait to bring this guy home!
