About Black Forest Horses
Black Forest, also known as Schwarzwalder Kaltblut, Horses
come from the Black forest, Germany. They were well known as the pearl of The
Black Forest back in their day and have derived from the cold bloods that were
residing in the region during the Middle Ages. They came about as a result of
breeding a Haflinger and a Noriker. Later on, the breed would be closer
introduced to the Brabant breed in a poor attempt at making them taller, which
was not successful whatsoever. Once the twentieth century arrived, some were
enabled to breed with any stallion they wanted to. Currently, there are fifty
state approved stallions in the area and over seven hundred registered mares
alike. They have a great reputation in local areas and are considered a very
calm and good animal to have on the grounds.
They are used for agriculture purposes, riding, harness, and
forestry working positions. They can be found in France, Germany, and most often
Stuttgart and Switzerland.
Black Forest Horses are around fifteen hands tall. They have
a quality head, arched neck, and strong legs. They also have a compact body,
low wither, sloping shoulders, and a very short back. They are interesting as
they have a very colorful, exceptionally shiny coat. They are found in sorrel
to dark chestnut with a lighter mane and tail.
