About Mallorquin HorsesAbout Mallorquin Horses



Mallorquins, or Caballo Mallorquins, are a rare breed ofrnhorse indigenous to the island of Majorca in the Balearic Islands, from whichrnit takes its name. They were first identified in 1985 by the Patronato para lasrnRazas Autoctonas de Mallorca ('authority for the autochthonous breeds ofrnMallorca'). Mallorquin horses are listed in the Catalogo Oficial de Razas dernGanado de Espana in the group of autochthonous breeds in danger of extinction. Theirrnstatus was listed in 2007 as critical by the Food and Agriculture Organizationrnof the United Nations. In 2005 the number of Mallorquin horses recorded in thernstud book was 247, but a census conducted by the Ministerio de Medio Ambiente yrnMedio Rural y Marino in 2003 identified only 172. In some English-languagernpublications, the Mallorquin and Menorquín are not listed, but horses of thernBalearic Islands are merged into a grouping called the Balearic horse orrnBalearic pony. However, authoritative sources, including the Government of thernBalearic Islands, the Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Medio Rural y Marino ofrnSpain and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, make itrnclear that they are two separate breeds.rnrn
