Marwari Horses

Last night while watching an episode of the documentary series Under the Spell of Horses (see a sneak peek at I made a new (to me) discovery: the majestic and utterly mesmerising Marwari horses of Rajasthan, India.

Sleek, proud and elegant, they are revered as divine and are loved for their bravery and loyalty. Apart from their strong bodies, slim stomachs and proud heads, the most surprising and distinctive (and incredibly endearing) characteristic is their ears! The tips curve over so that when the ears are pricked forward the tips touch to form an arch.

It's always so exciting to discover a new aspect to something you already previously loved!

If you'd like to find out more I recommend watching the DVD (you can rent it from the library) or try these:
