Andalusian foals aren’t fully grown until the age of six or seven. This is significantly later than foals from other horse breeds. In the first few years, they are gently introduced to wearing a halter and being showered. This helps the foals to learn to trust people.
In Spain, there are cave paintings of Andalusians that are 20,000–30,000 years old.
