Lipizzan horses in Lipica, Slovenia

At the Lipica stud farm, I watched a couple of Lipizzaner dashing around in the wild. Actually, the name of the horse breed originates from this Slovenian stud located near the border to Italy.

Interesting: Lipizzan horses are born dark and become lighter each year as the graying process takes place. Here I was obviously standing next to the kindergarten of the stud.
