In China, horses with curls have been depicted in art as far back as 161 A.D. A photo of a curly-coated Bashkir horse from Russia circulated in the 1800s, and evidence of these distinctive horses has been found in parts of Europe as well. However, whether these were the ancestors of the American curly horse remains unclear.
