In 1993, the Nokota Horse was named the Honorary Equine for the Year. Governor Schafer later stated he should not have signed the bill making it the Honorary Equine for the Year because it was not factual.
There is no facts to these horses had anything to do with Sitting Bull. Just a story – an interesting story – but no facts.
I am from Alaska and we don't have a state horse I am in Utah now and they don't have one either. Whats up with that? LOL When we lived in Alaska we were looking into getting a horse that could live in cold weather and deal well with snow and ice and we found the curly. We didnt get one since we were military and didnt have much more time left, but they sound like hardy horses.
I'm from Utah too, and it just so happens we DO have a breed of horse we lay claim to. We have the Sulphur Mountain Mustang! Have a look!
