Buying my first Draft (:
Hello out there!
I'm new to the forum, but I can already tell I love it. I've been scanning through these posts and they are so informational!
See, I'm buying my first Draft in a few weeks. I've already been to a few local breeders, and I've "test-driven" (or should I say ridden?) at least a dozen amazing draft horses. I'm pretty psyched (: Plus, I found a great boarding stable that is less than two miles from my home that has perfect amenities for draft.
Can someone help me out?
I'd really appreciate some advice here! (i.e, what to look for when buying a draft!) I absolutely LOVE Percherons, but I'm still a sucker for the other breeds such as the Clydesdale or the Belgian, or even a Suffolk Punch.
Thank you so much!
P.S., last summer I leased a Gypsy Vanner gelding from a friend for about two and a half months, so I do in fact have some experience with drafts! He he he!
