I post this to bring the Faroe Horse to the attention of those generally interested in horses.
There is a horse breed in the Faroe Islands that has recently been recognized as a unique breed. Genetic studies performed at the university of Uppsala in Sweden indicate that the horse has been isolated for possibly as long as 1200 years, which makes it one of the oldest and rarest breeds. It is most closely related to the Exmoor and Dartmoor.
In the sixties there were only 5 or 6 horses left, and with a massive effort the number has now risen to 62 individuals, but that still counts as critically endangered. There is an ongoing effort by enthusiasts to increase their numbers, but the circumstances under which they work leave much to be desired.
This is the Facebook page, and this is a website by Faroese horse enthusiasts:
