Striping on the limbs, neck, withers or quarters of horses or ponies.
A product of the Netherlands goes back to the earliest times. The Zeeland horse has been in great demand since the Middle Ages. It has proved to be of great use in agricultural work, and equally successful in horse-artillery. It is said to bear cold and heat, and to show great adaptability under all circumstances; it is quiet and meek but possessed of great stamina. The main characteristics are the snub-nosed head with straight profile; flat forehead; large intelligent eyes; short ears, pointing forward, broad deep chest; very muscular loins, with flanks wide apart; plenty of bone with excellent feet and good carriage.
