  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
  Koulan  \Kou"lan\,  n.  [Native  name.]  (Zo["o]l.) 
  A  wild  horse  ({Equus,  or  Asinus,  onager})  inhabiting  the 
  plants  of  Central  Asia;  --  called  also  {gour},  {khur},  and 
  {onager}.  [Written  also  {kulan}.] 
  Note:  It  is  sometimes  confounded  with  the  dziggetai,  to  which 
  it  is  closely  related.  It  is  gray  in  winter,  but 
  fulvous  in  summer.  It  has  a  well  defined,  dark,  dorsal 
  stripe,  and  a  short,  erect  mane.  In  size,  it  is 
  intermediate  between  the  horse  and  ass.
