Spotted Draft Mare
HI I had a Paint X Percheron mare. I bought her for my sons to use in Pony Club. She was an amazing horse. She could be a "packer" or take a rider over a 4' jump. My 7 year old neice trail rode her and could stop her just by thinking down. When my son's quit pony club, I sold Gypsy to my friend as she was too big for me. She just about split me in 2! I still get to see her and this summer she is going to a Thoroughbred stud to give me a foal.
I now have a grey Percheron cross gelding. I bought him for eventing. He has some issues related to his early training, but we are working through them and he is coming along well.
I also have a Percheron mare that I saved from the meat buyer at the auction. I really needed her like a whole in the head. It took me from April to August to teach her to pick her feet up!
gotta love those drafts.
