About Heihe HorsesAbout Heihe Horses



Heihe horses originated in Heihe City, China. Heihe isrnsituated alongside Heilongjiang, a well-known river basin. The primary sourcesrnof livelihood for the inhabitants of Heihe include transportation andrnagriculture -- horses are important in the accomplishment of both tasks.

rnrnHeihe is a place where the temperature is ratherrnunpredictable. This has made the Heihe breed relatively adaptive to suddenrnshifts in temperature. Since they are well-adapted to variable climates andrnthey can combat diseases well. Unless overtaxed and overworked, they stayrnstrong and healthy.

rnrnMongolian horses were initially sent to Heihe city by thernSoulun nation. This was followed by Russians sending horses of an unknown breedrnafter 1910. Orlov trotters were the next breed of horses sent to Heihe city,rnfollowed by Anglo-Norman stallions, Anglo-Arab stallions, and the Percherons.rnCrossbreeding of these horses (although not all at the same time) resulted in Heihernhorses.rnrn 

rnrnThe Heihe breed, however, was not fully recognized as anrnactual breed until the formal establishment of farms, such as the Keshan studrnfarm and the North Horse farm in Heihe city. Today modern Heihe horses are stillrnused for riding, draft, and farm work.rnrn 

rnrnTheir head and neck are both medium in size and length. Theyrnare known for big eyes and elongated ears, which are emphasized because of thernmedium-sized neck. Their forelegs are much more pronounced than its cannons.rnTheir hock, meanwhile, is usually bent and unpronounced. In addition, theirrnwithers are usually high and sloping downward to the croup, which is muchrnlower. They usually bay colored, although they can be seen in chestnut, gray,rnor black.rnrn 

rnrnThey are very compliant and yielding. They are usuallyrnemployed for pack and draft work. They are relatively enduring, which makesrnthem perfect for long and tiring travel. In Heihe, they are still used for farmrnwork.
