It is a coarser type of horse breed that has been in the northern forests of the empire for hundreds of years. The breed is known for its special light brown to dark brown color with bright lingulan mane and tail. Despite this, the horse has fallen from agriculture but has increased in popularity as a riding horse. The dark brown color with linenyellow man and tail is called "Kohlfuchs". Because of their natural growth in the forest, the horses were used extensively in forestry and the wood industry. The horses also had a natural safety in the hilly and slightly sloping terrain of the farms.
