Konik Horse


The Konik or Polish primitive horse is a small horse, a kind of semi-feral horse, originating in Poland. The Polish word konik is the diminutive of koń, the Polish word for "horse" (sometimes confused with kuc, kucyk meaning "pony"). However, the name "konik" or "Polish konik" is used to refer to certain specific breeds. Koniks show many primitive markings including a dun coat and dorsal stripe.


As it is very close to the extinct, it has been introduced into many nature reserves in the Netherlands such as the Oostvaardersplassen.
