Bactrian Camel


The Lipizzans

Lipizzans, or Lipizzaner, owe their name to the stud in Lipica, Slovenia, founded in 1590. The breed is closely associated with the House of Habsburg. The noble horses are born black and become white between the ages of four and ten years; they very rarely remain brown or black. Lipizzans are world-famous because of their performances in the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. At Schloss Hof they work as coach horses and for riding.
