Basque Pottok

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Pottock, or Basque Pony, is a semi-wild breed native to the Basque country. They're endangered, by loss of habitat and outbreeding - as this one shows, with its uncharacteristic pinto coloring that apparently was introduced only in the last few centuries. This little guy crept up on us from behind while we were picknicking, startling us with his soft breathing.
