There are 10 curious and pretty horse races.
We have been domesticating ponies for millennia, and during this period we have had the opportunity to affect some exceptional races. Akhal Teke is known above all for his unbelievable fur, which has a metal shine, something special for the race. Together with his slender, tender traits he has deserved the epithet "supermodel" of the horse-farm.
"It is due to the texture of the hairdryer; the non-transparent nucleus is smaller and may be missing in some areas. "The race comes from Turkmenistan, where it was used by tribal people to traverse the dry area. He is a robust horse with high stamina. The Bashkir curly is another one-of-a-kind specimen, known for its poodle-like fur, whose curls are particularly striking in cold weather when the fur is overlong.
As with their length and colouring, the amount of hair can vary considerably. Curling can have everything from a small hair in the hair and cuffs to close locks all over the whole length of the lash.
Like the poodle, the poodle claims that the wavy race is hypo-allergenic, which means that most horse allergy sufferers can still work with this one. This wonderful thick black forest race hair and cock hair fits perfectly to its voluminous draught horse body. It is known for its dark colour with a slight flax hair and tails.
However, when mechanisation began on the ranches and the need for powerful draught horse decreased, the race had almost vanished. In the early 1980s, only about 160 remained when the state took measures to preserve the race. With only 750 ponies she is still regarded as "endangered", but her appeal as a soft and powerful horse and coach horse is growing.
One of the oldest races in the wilderness of the word, the "wild" Chamargue bears a little romance as they inhabit the swamps and wetland areas of the south of France, known as the Chamargue. Pictures of the grey, almost whitish waterside riding are well known, and there are even photographic trips where the photographer takes pictures of the favourite horse.
Roots of the race are a little mysterious. They existed before the arrival of the invading Celts and Romans on the Iberian Peninsula, and could be related to the old race Soutré 17,000 years ago. A further uncommon race, which live under semi-wild circumstances, is the Exmoor-Pony.
The sturdy, small British Isles horse is called after the area where it mainly occurs, the moors of Exmoor in the south-west of England. These are sturdy ponies with unrivalled qualities that help them divert moisture and snows in their humid environments, which includes a "toad's eye" (extra fluffy lids that help divert water) and a thick fur with greasy hair that help keep away moisture from the isolating sock.
Highlighting the race as our photo of the day, we reported: "The ex moor bangs have an unbelievable story and a wobbly destiny in the British Isles. Detection of equidae in the exboor area goes back more than 50,000 years and today's race is derived from these old beasts.
Although the race has existed for hundreds of years, the former Pony suffered a serious setback during the Second World War, as they were used as targets and used for poaching beef. There are only about 800 pony breeders in the world, even with the work of breeding fans in the last years. "The Falabella, one of the smallest of all the small animals, is perhaps the most out-of-the-ordinary.
This small horse (no Ponys, but Miniaturpferde ) seldom stands higher than 32 tariff at the withers. It was first introduced in Argentina in the middle of the 18th century with Patrick Newtall and son-in-law Juan Falabella and was first introduced to the USA in 1962. Rugged and powerful, thanks to the blend of Criollo, Welsh bangs, Shetland bangs and small thoroughbred strains added to the development of the Falabella cattle.
As one of the oldest races in the word, it has been used as a court horse for hundreds of years. He has the power and muscles of a draught horse, but is smaller and more flexible. Their manes become long and thick, but are usually short in length to facilitate care and to emphasise the form of the throat.
Gypsy Vanner is a race that was created as a horse for caravans for the Romansh people of the British Isles to draw the varieties in which they were living. It' also known as Coloured Cob, Irish Cob or Tinker Horse, according to where you are. Through the use in towing large houses on bikes, it has evolved into a powerful race that looks similar to lightweight draught horse.
It is best known for its nice monochrome pinto (although it can be of any colour) and the thick feather that begins at the knee and ankles. Although hardly used today, the Vardoe is still a fountain of great British Romanichal tribes and is used for riding, training and exhibitions at horse shows.
The astonishing thing about the race is also that the animals are used for wet pastureing. Whoever wins for the wackiest ear goes to the horse. She is a scarce race from the Marwar area of India and can be recognized by her inward bent eyes. It has existed since the beginning of the twelfth centuries and is a robust sports horse that has been used mainly as a horse for horse racing throughout its entirety.
