[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Croatian Coldblood [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The breed was created in the 19th century by crossing native warmblood mares with imported heavy draft stallions, namely of the breeds Ardennais, Percheron, and Brabant (Heavy Belgian Draft). It soon gained popularity as a farm horse, and although it is no longer used for this purpose nowadays it is still the most widespread breed in Croatia.
Croatian Coldbloods have a broad head of medium length with a straight or slightly convex profile, a long, high-set muscular neck, a deep back which is also longer than usually seen in draft horses, a sloping, double croup, and large hooves.
The mane and tail grow thick and coarse, and can be wavy. The legs have light feathering along the back of the cannons.
