Holy crap! 19 Hands! Duke is 17 something. WOW

Aww, the drafts make the normal horses look like babies!

Quick question. How do you go about plaiting manes when they are sooo tall? Do you have stepladders? Or lovely forgiving horses that stand for ages with their heads down? Very curious.

I have to stand on a 5 gallon bucket to groom him. :)

He just stands still. I have never braided his mane so I have no clue. I know that when I am standing on the ground next to him I can't reach his butt to groom it so the bucket method works for me.

Here is Rosie...PMU mare who is a total chunky butt standing next to our orphan foal (2 years old now) who is 13 hands. Rosie is sooo sleeeeeepy!

And here she is running away from me...she is down hill and in 2 feet of snow( at least )

And the last one is just her...

I'm seeing a pattern... Is it mandatory to have a mini if you have a draft!? It looks like every body does!!!! Do they come in like a 2 for 1 (or 2 1/2 for 1) package
