    It's pretty! Got to love chocolate horses!

    On a serious note, the Schwarzwälder Fuchs is also known as Black Forest, Schwarzwälder Kaltblut, and St. Märgener, Wälderpferd. It is a smaller draft horse of German decent and looks like a big Haflinger. It may be somewhat hard to find as in 1999 there were only 700 registered mares and 45 registered stallions. It is rising in popularity though.

    The Yakut, is a rare native horse breed from the Siberian Sakha Republic (or Yakutia) region. It is large compared to the otherwise similar to the Mongolian horse and Przewalski horse. It is noted for its adaptation to the extreme cold climate of Yakutia, including the ability to locate and graze on vegetation that is under deep snow cover.

    You forgot about adding a new breed.

    Continuing on the Australian Brumby

    Here is a little something from the Oklahoma State University website.
    "It is thought that the name Brumby for Australian feral horses is thought to have been derived from a James Brumby who arrived on the Britania in 1791. James Brumby, born in Scotton Lincolnshire, was a soldier with the New South Wales Corps, he was also a farrier and it is thought that he was responsible for some horses in the early Australian Colony.

    When James moved to Tasmania in 1804 it is thought that he left some horses in New South Wales. Locals asked who owned the horses, "they are Brumby's" was the reply. Whilst there is some uncertainty as to the origin of this name for horses the above appears the most certain route to their naming."

    They are noted for their speed and for endurance on long marches. These "golden-horses" are adapted to severe climatic conditions and are thought to be one of the oldest surviving horse breeds.

    There are currently about 3,500 Akhal-Tekes in the world, mostly in Turkmenistan and Russia, although they are also found throughout Europe, Australia and North America.
