Lokai description

Lokai horses are the shortest in stature among the Central Asian breeds. They are not sufficiently uniform in type; the head is sometimes coarse and bulky and sometimes lacking breed character. In most cases the head is short, the neck medium in length, lean, often low set, with a prominent throat-latch. The withers are medium in height and broad; the back is straight, wide and short; the loin is prominent with well-developed muscles. The croup is long, often sloping and well muscled. The chest is deep and broad, the ribs rounded, the groin short. The legs are solid with hard hoofs. The legs are not always properly set; the forelegs are often splayed and the hindlegs are often cow-hocked or bowed. Coarse joints and general flabbiness are found in horses of large size.\r

\r
The breed tends to mature late, especially when raised in their native habitats. When bred and reared in good stable conditions, with improved feed and management, they mature faster and grow larger than their more native counterparts.

Lokai history

The Lokai is a mountain horse bred in Tajikistan on the western edge of the Pamirs, just south of the Tien Shan range. It was developed in the 12th century by the Lokai people, a sub-tribe of the Uzbek, when they moved eastward from the shores of the Aral Sea. Initially a mix of Central Asian blood, the Lokai was more specifically improved by Iomud (Persian) blood, and by the Karabair the main Uzbek breed and a true eastern horse with Arab and Turkmene antecedents.
