On Friday, 13 March 2015, the Horse of Auzoux from Animal Sciences was officially transferred to Wageningen UR Library. The horse, a life-size anatomical model, is made of papier-mâché and was bought in 1879 by the ‘Rijkslandbouwschool’. It was restored in 2012 with funds from the Stichting WICC.
The Horse of Auzoux is now on permanent display at the entrance of the Forum Library in a climate controlled vitrine. The display was officially opened by Dr Tijs Breukink from Wageningen UR’s Executive Board.
