About Ob Pony HorsesAbout Ob Pony Horses



Ob Ponies, also known as Priob ponies, are from the Khanty-Mansirnnational district near the lower areas of the Ob and Irtysh rivers in westernrnSiberia in Russia.

rnrnThe climate they are from is severe with extreme cold, deeprnsnow, and a lack of grain foods. Ob Ponies are used chiefly as pack animals in thernwinter. During the summer months they do not work and are left free to grazernthe marshes.rnrn 

rnrnOb Ponies live long lived and fertile; they work until theyrnare eighteen or twenty years old. In general they are similar Yakut Ponies,rnalthough they are more of draft type. They are hardy and enduring. They are smallrnin stature with a long back and well developed skeleton. Their legs are short.rnTheir head is of medium length, coarse and often Roman-nosed; their neck isrnshort and thick; their shoulder is slanted and short; their withers low; theirrnback is long and often carp-shaped; their legs are sturdy. Their hooves arernwide and flat. And they usually stand between 13 and 14 hands high.rnrn 

rnrnThey vary in color, but typically they are dun. Also dun,rngrullo, and bay Ob ponies usually have dun factor markings - dorsal stripe,rnshoulder stripes, and zebra striping on the legs.rnrn 

rnrnThe first research on this breed was done in 1936. Ob poniesrnare rare today.
