A herd of wild horses have been brought into a nature reserve in Scotland.

They will act as four-legged lawnmowers and help conservation in the area.

The aim is for the horses eat the tall plants. These plants are currently stopping smaller flowering plants from growing.

It's part of a larger project that's trying to restore large areas of meadow across the UK.
