Zemaitukai by youngmoons Zemaitukai by youngmoons
The Žemaitukas is a historic pony breed from Lithuania. Known from the 6–7th centuries, it was used as a war horse by the Lithuanians during the Northern Crusades and is hailed in Lithuania as part of the state's historic heritage. Its origin is uncertain, but it is related to indigenous forest horse breeds and the Konik, a Polish breed, which were both probably descended from the Tarpan. The breed contributed to the foundation of the Trakehner. Once popular, the breed was brought to the brink of extinction by changing agricultural demands and World War II. As of 2010, the total population is estimated at 400 individuals. [Wikipedia]

I`m learning how to use coloured pencils - I`ve never used them in a manner like this before, it`s very exciting!
I`m sorry for anatomy mistakes, it bothers a lot of people, but I`m just learning :)
