Karakachan Horse 2

In 1957-58 after the government took away the livestock from private owners, the Karakachan horses have not been in use by the state farms anymore. They had been killed and given to chickens and pigs for food. Recently such horses are being exported for meet (mostly to Italy). Attempts have been made in the state farms to "improve" the breed by crossbreeding with Hucul, Kabardin and Haflinger. The government does not have policy to save the aboriginal breeds of horses. There is no promotion of their valuable qualities.
