Serbian - The horse of Marko. This piebald animal was given to Marko by a veela or, in some stories, reared by Marko who bought him as a foal afflicted with leprosy. Other versions say that it came as a reward for three years faithful service to his master. Marko always tested a horse by swinging it round by its tail but Sharatz, though a young foal, could not be budged. The horse, which was said to breathe blue flame, lived with Marko for 160 years. Sometimes known as Sharatz, Sharin, Sharin, Sharo or Sharo.
