Tarpan Description
  The Tarpan is an extinct horse, but though the modern miracles of genetic technology, has been brought back from extinction. It is considered to be the ancestor of every lightly built horse breed. The Tarpan has a very calm and gentle dispostion. They are curious, friendly, quite affectionate, and very intelligent. They can also be independent and stubborn. They are not easily domesticated, as they do not want to give up their freedom. They do enjoy riding and pulling carts, but they don't like being told where to go or what to do. It takes a great deal of patience to tame and command a Tarpan. The Tarpan is a small, lightly built horse. Their bodies are dun or grulla in color, with a smokey gray body and dark head and legs. The mane and tail are dark in the center, with lighter colors on the outer edges, and are semi-erect. They have a large head with large jaws and a thick neck. Its back is short and strong and has low withers. They do not need shoes due to their extremely tough hooves.
