Banat horse. This breed was a large light horse from the Timus Plateau of Romania. They were developed by crossing the Nonius, Noric, Ardennes, Oldenburg & Lipitsa. They became an important animal to the local people & were used primarily for agricultural work. Unfortunately, with the emergence of modernization techniques for farming, the Banat, among other draft type animals fell into extinction. The ones in the photo must be similar. Img: Romanian Banat.
