The Barb



If the horses can talk maybe they can tell us the stories from the ancient times. They are men companion at wars. And possibly they may tell the truth about history. Or they are just the same as us, like to tell the make believe stories.

This drawing captured the fine looking Barb wearing the traditional horse tack, ready for the battle. The Barb originally from Barbary Region, now the modern Algeria, Morocco and Libya. When the Arabs came, many believe they had been crossbreeding with the Arabian Horses. This illustration is based on the book 'The Horse The complete Guide to Horse Breeds and Breeding' by Jane Kidd.
