Sorraia Description
  The Sorraia is a small and beautiful horse. Unfortunately, it is almost extinct. The Sorraia is considered to represent the indigenous wild horse of Southern Iberia. It is one of the four primeval wild horses that all our modern horses have evolved from. It is well known for being able to survive in places with extreme climate, especially hot and dry climates. The Sorraia is very hardy and agile, being able to survive in good health on very little food. In the past, it was used for riding and herding of fighting bulls and other livestock. Due to its small size, it is often mistaken as a pony. It comes in two colors, either dun or grullo. They have a dark face, black dorsal stripe and black tipped ears. Sometime they have zebra stripes on their legs or shoulders. Their mane and tail are dark black with shades of white. Foals are born with stripes all over.
