Pottok group A
Today most of the Pottoks are still living free in the bask mountains.
They live in the wilderness.
The mountains make them tough and hardy.
It helped them to survive in the early days and to continue to survive under hard conditions.
The great variety of use of this horse breed is a reverence of the adaptation ability.
