The Nokota® Type

Nokota Horses

 I became interested in this rare breed because I'm reading the book Flying Changes by Sara Gruen, in which there stars a Nokota sport horse.  Apparently they frequently come in blue roan, which is one of my favorite, albeit a very rare, color.  Because they are descended from Spanish Mustangs, the horses are Iberian in type (other Iberian breeds include the Lusitano, Andalusian, Lipizzan, and Friesian).  Here is a good link with a lot more information on them:
