The Horse

According to the Dr Emilio Solanet, the equinos that populated the territory arrived by three routes. First she is that that talks about to the disembarkation of Columbus in America in 1492, and from the islands of Santo Domingo and Haiti they happened to Mexico , Peru and the Bolivian Plateau. Second, with the disembarkation of Alvar Núñez Head of Cow in the coasts of Brazil in 1541, from there to Asuncio'n of Paraguay and later to the River of the Silver. The third and most important one, but the most reduced in amount of animals, took place in 1535 in our coasts, when Advanced Don Pedro de Mendoza arrived. The three contingents were of race Andalusian, considered one of the best ones of Europe, to prevail in her the blood of the berberiscos horses introduced by the Moors in Spain . They were rustic, of little raised and enormous resistance. Due to the prolonged site of the querandíes Indians, the inhabitants of the town of Santa Maria of Buenos Aires begin to eat their horses. Later, the Spaniards leave the fort and loosen to the rest of the horses in the plain, where they will reproduce extraordinarily. When Garay arrives, in 1580, there are approximately about 12.000. He was called baguales and were wild, obstinate colts to the capture and the domesticación.

More than 2 centuries later the entrance of other races begins. The Grl. Beresford left its horse after the English invasions of 1805; he was purasangre English of race, that was sold in auction, and the buyer crossed it Creole mares, beginning the mestización of cabaIlo Creole. Soon they will be made you cross sires Shire, Bay, Cleveland, heavy Clydesdale and races and of chair. In order to rescue the Creole horse in the purity of the lost race between as much mestización, Emilio Solanet selected, at the beginning of this century, 16 animals of between one of best tropillas of the cacique Juan Shaqmatr. He bought three original mares of the lake Fontana , brought several mares of Loncoluán and others of the Munster lake, everything in the cordillerana region of the Neuquén.

Of the province of Buenos Aires he selected animals that crossed 40 yeguarizos of I urge on carried out in the south. He was this way that obtained in its cabin the Cardal the authentic Creole race. In 1918 it published the standard model for the Creole race, that was approved by more of 80% of the criadores, and the Rural Society opened the Genealogical Registry for the Argentine race.

The Creole horse is of great and strong body, longer than high; it is the type of muscular, agile and fast horse of movement, active character. The hair most characteristic of the Creole race is the crawled one, a bay one leonado. The hardness of the surroundings often causes a similarity between the animal color certain and the medio.ambiente that surrounds them. The sandy Pampas characterize to the crawled one, assimilated to the colors of will water down and the guanaco to be able to be confused with the colors of sands, hard pajonales and grass, and to be able to defend the potrillos of the voracity of the wild dogs and puma. Many pure Creole potrillos of pedigree and crawled hair, when being born become to the year of life in bay toastings, rosillos partly or the totality of the body.
