About Lokai HorsesAbout Lokai Horses



Lokai horses were originally developed by the Uzbek Lokairntribe from Tajikistan, formally part of the Soviet Union. Their descendentsrnwere Oriental mainly of central Asian strains such as the Iomud and thernAkhal-Teke. Karabair and Bukhara horses also are in the Lokai background. Arabianrnhorses were later introduced into the breeding mix.rnrn 

They are approximately 14.3 hh. Some are smaller. Theirrncolors range from gray, bay, chestnut, black, and palomino. The coat is oftenrncurly and has a shiny, metallic like shine.

rnrnBonnie L. Hendricks, in her book entitled InternationalrnEncyclopedia of Horse Breeds, wrote: "Horses with curly coats are mostrnoften found among middle Asian breeds, especially in the Lokai." Sometimesrnyou will see sparse manes and tails that can be traced back to the Akhal-Teke'srninfluence. They have great variance in their characteristics. However, there isrnone strain of Lokai which can be traced back to a specific stallion, Farfor. Hernwas bred to reproduce this curly coat from 1955 to 1970. He produced up to 18rnfoals each year that had this curly coat. These Lokai are fully curly coatedrnfrom head to hoof. They have inherited a dominant gene from this stallion.rn"His offspring were characterized by great endurance, resistance torndisease, and good adaptation to range living in the mountains... Farfor wasrnused for a long time in the Tadzik national game, buz-kasi... Farfor wasrnheterozygote, and to strengthen the heredity of the curly coat inbreeding wasrnused in certain generations. As a result of many years of careful selection, arngroup of curly horses was obtained. Horses of this strain are curly from earsrnto cannons, especially during the spring and summer periods." The legs arernnot always properly set. The head can be quite coarse, but not always. Lokairnare not uniform in their conformation. They are extremely hardy, have excellentrnendurance and are used in the famous game of kokpar or Bazhashi.
