Diminutive Falabella horse, illustrated on a map of Argentina, has been printed on high-quality paper and attached to a wooden ornament. The opposite side has the breed name and some information about it. Both sides have been sealed with a coat of clear resin to prevent peeling and chipping. Please take care when storing and displaying, as improper handling may result in fading or yellowing. Do not display in direct sunlight.
The Falabella horse was originally developed in Argentina from local horses of Criollo stock, beginning in 1868 with the breeding program of Patrick Newtall. When Newtall died, the herd and breeding methods were passed to Newtall’s son-in-law, Juan Falabella. Juan added additional bloodlines, including the Welsh Pony, Shetland pony, and small Thoroughbreds. With considerable inbreeding, he was able to gain consistently small size within the herd.
