Horses arrived in Australia in 1788, with the first fleet of prisoners. Most of the them arriving from the Cape Colony. The horses which were most able to adapt to the environment were the ones which survived and bred. Escapes from caretakers and poor fencing contributed to the population growth of the wild horses; the first record of this occurring was in 1804. As machines replaced horses, many domesticated horses were purposely released into the wild to join the brumbies.
