- A heavy draft horse which was bred in Pennsylvania in the late 1700's.
It was a cross of the Flemish carthorse and an English breed. The
horse was named from Conestoga, a village in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania,
which was called after one of the Iroquois tribes of that section.
These horses were much used with the famous Conestoga wagon.
