About Croatian Coldblood HorsesAbout Croatian Coldblood Horses



Croatian Coldblood (Croatian: Hrvatski hladnokrvnjak,rnGerman: Kroatisches Kaltblut) horses are medium-heavy draught horses developedrnin Croatia.

rnrnThe history of the breed dates back to the first half of thern19th century, when it was begun to crossbreed local warmblood mares in centralrnCroatia with imported quality stallions of Noriker breed. Some other breedsrnwere involved later, like Ardennes, Brabant, and Percheron. At the beginning ofrnthe 20th century the breed was widespread toward east (Slavonia) and westrn(Gorski kotar and Istria regions).rnrn 

rnrnThe typical Croatian Coldblood ranges from 150 centimetresrn(14.3 hands; 59 in) to 160 cm (15.3 h; 63 in) high. Stallions can weigh up torn850 kilograms (1,870 lb). Its head is medium-sized and refined, with smallrnears, but with large eyes and nostrils. It has medium short, arched andrnmuscular neck, wide and deep chest, broad and muscular breast, as well asrnpowerful legs with broad hooves.rnrn 

rnrnMost Croatian Coldbloods are bay or seal brown. Of thernremaining horses, approximately 10-15 percent are black, and less than 10rnpercent are chestnut, gray, palomino, while the other colours are very rare.rnrn

 rnrnThey are considered mild and obedient, easy keepers, willingrnworkers and adapt well to various conditions and climates. Earlier, they werernused for pulling waggons or for work in agriculture or forestry, but today theyrnhave lost their importance as draft animals and are being widely used for horsernmeat production.
