[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Pechora [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
A hardy horse:
The 16th century saw the importation of Ural, Siberian, and Estonian horses to the basin of the Pechora River. Crossbreeding of these horses, as well as the local climate, shaped the Pechora into what it is today, a horse who survives the freezing wintertime and is not affected by swarms of insects during summertime.
The Pechora did well during the next three centuries, but by the end of the 19th century breeders moved away from this breed, maybe because of its relatively smaller size compared to other draft horses at the time. However, the Pechora never disappeared completely, and today it is bred in a pure manner in small numbers.
Pechora horses have a large, wide head with a straight profile, unobstructive withers, a straight, long back, a sloping croup, a broad chest, and thick legs. Overall, they resemble the Mezen, a somewhat larger Russian draft breed which originated by the nearby Mezen River (see 'Mezen').
The mane can grow long and is sometimes coarse, and the legs have feathering.
