MORE THAN JUST EARS
On average, Marwaris range between 14.2hh and 15.2hh, but can be different heights depending on where they are bred, with some up to 16hh. Colours include bay, grey, chestnut, palomino, piebald or skewbald, black or white. Grey horses tend to be the most valuable, with piebald and skewbald being the second most favoured. Black horses are considered unlucky, as the colour is a symbol of death and darkness. Marwaris that have a white blaze and four white socks are considered lucky. White horses are used for religious ceremonies only. Marwaris can rotate their ears 180 degrees. Hair whorls and their placement is important to breeders. Horses with long whorls down the neck are lucky, whorls below the eyes are unpopular, while whorls on the fetlocks are thought to bring victory.
