One of the rare types of master hits is the so-called kaura color. Animals with such hair are closest to the wild type and are found only among aboriginal breeds. Looks like a kaura horse and what color it is, look at the photo in this article.

Suit review

Before we talk about the features of each color, it should be said in general that among all the horses they distinguish basic as well as additional suits. The main types are four: black, bay, red, gray. All other colors of horses are considered derivatives. But there is a separate type called "wild" or "zonal" suits. They are characteristic of wild horses, as well as representatives of local aboriginal breeds.

Since all the “zonal” colors have many common features among themselves, they are usually combined under the common name - Savrasaya. However, all of them are still different from each other, therefore they are named with the prefix of the main color. For example, among such suits, there are muscular, kauruyu and savras. They are referred to as raven-savras, red-savras and bay-savras.

Interesting! The main suits, according to genetic scientists, are descended from savras, and not vice versa.

Common features of wild horses

As we have said, all three types of color have common features. So, in horses with this color, the main part of the body has the basic tone. But the mane, tail and lower limbs are painted in darker hair. In this case, motley hairs and strands may be present throughout the body. Also, the presence of enlightenment in the area of ​​the muzzle, on the abdomen, around the eyes, on the buttocks and in the groin.

It's all about genes

The color of the suit, as well as those close to this type of savage and muscular, causes a special gene Dun. This gene is also called the wild color genome, as it was transmitted to the modern horses from their ancestors. However, not all animals can inherit such a color, but only those closest to the wild genotype. Today, for example, such are the Przhevalsky horses, as in the photo. Also, "kaurest" is manifested among modern breeds, for example, in some draft carriers and local horses.

Many people confuse the Savras proper and the red-Savras coloring of horses. Yes, the differences in them are hardly noticeable, unlike the muscular one. The main secret of recognition is the saturation of the main tone. All where there is a brighter yellowish shade is referred to as kauraya suit. The pale shade of wool with a large number of dark strands and hair in the mane and in the tail indicates pure savoriness.

Features

Kaura suit is possible only when the Dun gene is combined with the main gene responsible for the red color. That is why such racers have a red basic shade of wool and are called reddish-savras. Lighter hair appears only in the abdomen, under the breast, and also on the face and around the eyes. At the same time, the tail, the mane, and also the legs are preserved in a darker color, reaching red-red. These parts of the body can be bright, if the modifier gene is active.

Kaury horses have the so-called "wild" marks. This is a dark stripe along the ridge, the zebraous on the legs, as well as the transverse strip on the withers (as in donkeys). In addition, in different breeds, this suit allows for a wide variety of basic colors. For example, the horses of Przhevalsky's body are painted in a rich reddish yellow color, as in the photo. But for the Norwegian fjords characteristic lighter sand shade.

Variety of shades

Although at first glance it may seem that this type of mastering always has the same tone, this is not quite the case. Among the red-sarasa animals also distinguish different shades. For example, a dark-brown horse has a basic dark ginger color with all the other features of a “zonal” color. The usual red-saucer is a light red basic shade of hair with dark mane, tail and limbs. The light shade is very close to the nightingale in combination with the rest of the signs of savoriness.

Where is it found?

Kaurai suit, as you already understood, is a very rare type of horse color. It may have a few breeds. As a rule, these are local horses that have been formed on the basis of crossing wild with domestic ones. For example, in our country such an unusual color is found among the Altai, Kazakh, Yakut and some other native breeds. Sometimes this type of savoriness manifests itself in Soviet heavy trucks.

As for other countries, in Europe the Icelandic ponies, connemara, as well as representatives of the Norwegian fjord breed have a reddish color. In America, this color is inherent in the Mustangs, the Quarterhos, Appaloosa and Criollo. Photos of these horses, see below.
