One of the most famous horse breeds in the world, Lipizzaner horses, are known for their extreme beauty, stature and milky-white hair that gives them an air of royalty. Not many people know that many of the studs, used to create Lipizzaner families across the globe – especially in Eastern Europe – come from the Lipik stud farm in Slavonia.
On a recent visit to this pristine farm, I got the opportunity to see and interact with the horses. The farm lost many during the war in the early 1990s, but has since recovered. It was amazing to see them in their stalls, in the pastures and learn about their lives at the farm. I don’t know if there is another horse as beautiful as the Lipizzaner.
