Background: Horses of the Orlovsky breed became famous about 200 years ago. Today the Moscow Horse breeding Farm continues to breed and perfect horses of the highest "Elita" class. Riders consider these horses quite calm. That's not Kvadrat, they say. And here is the famous "Kvadrat". He is 24 years old, quite an age for a horse, but even now he can be caught in a calm state in his image in bronze there are two monuments erected in his honour. In harness "Kvadrat is more restrained, but only until he notices that he is being overtaken. Then his sense of pride spurges him forward - never had Kvadrat been second, always in the lead. Recently the 600th offspring of Kvadrat was born at the farm. This grandson of Kvadrat is only making his first steps, but who knows - maybe these little hoofs will some day bring him world fame.
