Noric Description
  The Noric is an ancient breed of Austria for as much as 2000 years. It is also known as the Noriker, Norisches Kaltbult, or Pinzgauer. They are a very strong, hardy breed and known for their docile personalities and willingness to work, making them very popular for heavy work. They are becoming popular as a riding mount and are being used more and more as sport horses. They have a good gait, a good sense of balance, a sure step, and are able climbers. They are not very fertile, so their numbers do not increase quickly. Norics are very large, muscular, and powerful animals. They have a straight profile with wide nostrils and medium sized eyes. Its neck is medium length and it has a thick mane. Its chest is broad and deep. Most Norics are bay, brown or chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail.
