Murakoz breed of heavy trucks

Murakoz horse comes from the region near the Mura River in southwestern Hungary, where it is bred today, as well as in Poland and in the countries of the former Yugoslavia.

The breed arose as a result of crossing Polish and Hungarian mares with stallions of Percheron, Norik and Arden breeds. At the beginning of the 20th century, Arabian blood was added to the Murakoz breed, and although it is referred to as cold-blooded horses, they have certain qualities of Eastern horses that are not found in most breeds of heavy trucks. As a result of this combination, a high-quality, hard-wired horse emerged, unusually strong and agile. Murakoz horse was very popular in Hungary during the Second World War, where it was used for work in the field.

Unfortunately, the war caused enormous damage to this breed, so after the war, blood of other breeds was added to it in order to restore the breed. First of all, it was the Ardenian breed, to which maracosi owes its tremendous strength. In addition, marakozi is economical in its content, because it is unpretentious in food. It matures quickly and is able to work at the age of two. Marakozi is a great horse for agricultural work, he works willingly, he is flexible, and it is easy to find a common language with him.
Within the breed, two types are distinguished: a powerful type and a lighter type, suitable for a saddle, and not just for harness and field work.

Story:
At the end of the 19th century, the Murakoz horse breed was selected in an equine farm near the town of Murakoz, by crossing the local mares with an Arabian horse. Thus, the basis for creating the breed was a group of horses endowed with ease and beauty of movement. Subsequently, manufacturers Ardenet and Percheron were imported from France, and a few Noriks from Austria. From them came the active horse, strong with good temperament and physique.

Using:
Murakoz continues to be used for agricultural work in Hungarian villages. He was widely involved in the army during the first and second world wars.
