About Fleuve Horses
Fleuves are strong and hardy horses from Senegal. They are
related to Barb Horses. They can withstand extreme temperatures of cold and
heat. They were bred to be work horses to carry packs, transport, and work in
agriculture--even though they are a light breed. In the equestrian world they
live longer, are really hardy, easy keepers, and have an excellent immune
system. They range in size from pony size to horse size, however, 14 hands is
the most common height.
Their color tends to be gray like their Barb ancestors. They
do, however, come in other colors, as well, such as brown or bay. They are a
rare breed and are mostly seen in Senegal.
