It rises at southeast the slopes of Ježica – Srebrenik masiff, flowing southeast at around 1,010 metres (3,310 ft) above sea level. The river drains the central part of the northern slopes of the Dinaric mountain massif, with a length of 5 kilometres (3.1 mi).

Kobilja occurs from several sources-bald head, of which the most is Srebrenik (1,010 m), which rises on the south-eastern slopes samenamed elevation (Srebrenik, 1,131 m), from the massive mountain languages (1,276 m). Band around the top of the extremely rich strong sources of drinking water, of which begin streams basins of Ugar and Vrbanja rivers. From the Djevojačka ravan (Girls' Plane, above Dunići rocks and Demićka river) to Vakufske Njive (Vaqf Fields) there are over 50 streams. Srebrenik is known locally and tanzitno resting place.[1][2]

Among the many smaller tributaries, the most important right stream is Vukovica, and left are: Strašivi potok, and Zlovarski potok (streams).
