Giara horse

Equus caballus


The total population is estimated at around 700 individuals. Giara Horse may have been brought into the island of Sardinia by the Phoenicians or by the Greeks in the 5th or 4th century BC. It has characteristics of "Asian" or oriental horse type, particularly that of the Barb. In the past, some theorized that it was a unique subspecies, Equus ferus giarae because of a Neolithic horse fossil dated 6000 B.C. but similar speculations in other breeds have been largely disproven (Wikipedia)


I took these pictures 14 years ago, when I only was 8 years old.
