Brumbies are a wild breed in Australia. They were origiginally horses bought over from England that had been tamed but ran away or got lost and eventually formed a herd and became wild. From this brumbies became quite a common thing. However they were considered a pest and were often gone after and shot or rounded up and sold on. There numbers are now dwindling. However they are great horses as they are toguh and strong and have hardy and good temperaments.
