Bashkir is an older pony breed that lives in regions near Russia. They are very hardy horses that live outside all the time even in very cold winters. They have thick necks and stout legs and are used for milk and meat production. The milk is fermented in a drink that is very a much apart of the people's diet in the area. The Bashkir does much of the work on the farms including pulling the traditional carts know as Troikas. In the United States there is a variation of the breed know as the Bashkir Curly. These horses have very wavy manes, tails and body coats all year around. When Curlies are shown it is at a time of year before they shed their winter coat so the judges can see how curly the hair coat is.
