The Pantaneiro is found in northern Mato Grosso in Brazil.  The normal distribution of colors within this breed is 45% gray, 17% bay, 13% black and white, 10% brown. The breed is well adapted to the temporary flood conditions that are found in the Pantanal region.  The Pantaneiro is reported to be resistant to Equine Infectious Anemia.  This resistance has made them the preferable mount in the swampy areas of their native region.
