Camargue Description
  The Camargue is originally from France and is recognized as a pony. It is a primitive and hardy horse and so true to type that it is difficult to tell one horse from another. There are still small herds of Camargues that roam free in the south of France. Because Camargues are herbivores, wether in the wild or captivity, it relies on grazing for food. In the wild, they will graze for 22 hours a day when food is short. They are primarily a wild animal, which makes the Camargue willfull and independent. They are quite difficult to capture, and even more difficult to train. Once trained though, It is very good natured and loyal. The Camargue is a relatively small animal with a large, square head and widely set ears. Its neck is short and the shoulders upright. The back is short and strong and the strong legs are very muscular. Very rarely are they shod. Camargues are almost always gray.
