The Sorraia Mustang Stallion from Schleich® FARM WORLD is part of one of the oldest and rarest horse breeds in Portugal.
This is a characteristic of these horses, as is the dun coat and the dark snout.
The mane and tail show another characteristic of the breed: They are always bi-coloured!
Sorraia horses are considered the ancestors of Andalusians and Lusitanos.
It is to them that these breeds owe their high-set, strong neck.
The Sorraias developed from a herd of wild horses near the Sorraia River in Portugal.
