Noma Description
  The Noma is a very rare breed, with only about 27 pure Nomas exciting in December of 1988. Known also as the Noma-Uma, this breed orginated in Japan and are likely decscended from the same prehistoric animals that most of the native Japanese breeds are descended from. The Noma is part of the local culture and heritage. They are very strong and very economical animals because they do not require high quality feed or large amounts of food. They are often used for riding and light draft. Because of their even-tempered nature and willingness to work hard, the Noma is well loved by the native people. Like all other Japanese breeds, they are also adept at navigating difficult mountain terrain. The Noma is the smallest of the Japanese native breeds. They have very muscular bodies and short backs. Their head is quite large in comparison to their bodies.
