Photographer's Note

After posting a portrait of black Kladruby Horse I felt I owed you one picture of white Kladrubers.

Searching for autumn pictures in my archives I found a nice picture from the National Stud in Kladruby nad Labem, where the white ones are bred separately from the black ones (you can see the black horses in Slatiňany).

The most interesting thing for me is the fact that the white horses grow up from black colts and they loose the black pigment by the time they grow.

Old Kladruby Horse or so called The Kladruber (Czech Kladrubský kůň) is the oldest unique Czech horse breed and it is included in the National heritage of the country. The main breeding centre is in National stud farm Kladruby nad Labem in the Czech republic where Kladrubers have been bred for more than 400 years, being now one of the world's oldest horse breeds. Kladrubers have always been bred to be a galakarosier - a heavy type of carriage horse for the court of the House of Habsburg.
