My Cody is a PMU rescue from Canada. I adopted him when he was 11 mos. old as a draft cross. I was told he was 1/2 belgian and TB and would end up about 16 hds. but with further research, found out he is percheron/paint/TB and possibly some clyde and as he has grown, we think he is more like 3/4 draft due to his size (approx. 18 hds) and build. He is a wonderful guy, started out very skittish and fearful but came around quickly and now is hard to get rid of :) I do mostly trail riding on him but we're venturing into dressage now that he's 6 with some cross country jumping which he loves. The dressage is hard work, he's not really built for it but it will improve him overall so we keep at it.
Danastark, if you don't mind me asking, did you rescue him from Knights Bridge Farm in Canada? The only reason I ask is because a dear friend of mine aquired four PMU babies as yearlings from that farm and they are now going on six years old. For those who might not know, the farm rescued 80 some mares off a meat truck and over 50 of them were in foal, so the farm adopted out many of the foals and the rest went to live in Oregon at a sanctuary with their moms and many other rescued horses. These four horses are some of the best horses I have ever had the ability to be around. I love all of them. They are so sweet, and I can't wait for them to be started undersaddle!
I will share them. :)
Galahad and Bolero are actually half brothers.
Bolero, the dominant boy of the group.
Picasso, the clown!
Galahad, the most people oriented of the herd. I absolutely LOVE this boy!
And Andora, the Princess. She will stand for HOURS and let you groom or pet her.
And some playing pictures!
Andora, Picasso, and Galahad playing in the snow!
And the boys, being boys of course!
Okay, I am done now. Sorry for all the pictures! I just love to share these awesome horses! Because of them, I am a HUGE supporter of rescuing PMU babies and mares.
