We have a Percheron mare, Big Mary. She is the sweetest most laid-back, trustworthy, calm-natured horse; when she was 3 we were lining up toddlers on her back to give rides. I love drafts, their temperaments especially, but you have to make accommodations for their size. ;)

I just picked up a Percheron-Quarterhorse cross from Moon Moon Farm, in Quebec, for $600. There are currently hundreds of drafts and Draft crosses being sold from PMU farms that have been shut down. They all need homes, many very quickly. As their farms go under, the owners sell them to whoever will take them, and when that doesn't work they go to auction. There were some gorgoeous horses in there. Percherons, Belgians, Shires, and any number of crosses, Animail farms out of Ca does alot of rescue work with this too. THe easiest way to find what you want is to google PMU horses for sale

I've worked and ridden both Percheron's and Belgians, and they've been mellow pretty much through out. They, like any horse have their moments. One of the Percheron's liked to run, so he's bob his head a few times when we first went out. (not move his body, bob his head about 6 inches) And we had one of the Belgians who threw his feed bowl at you if you took to long. Working with drafts is a whole new world, hooves the size of your head. Personally I slightly prefer Percherons, as the ones I have worked with are a bit leaner though the shoulder and haunches than Belgians. My new colt, come to find out, is Percheron-Belgian-Mustang by his Sire and registered QH from his Mom.
