Joe Hancock's dam was 1/2 Percheron. If JH was 5 generations back (he's been dead 70 years) the filly would be 1.5% Percheron.

She does have enough bone and coloring to make one think clyde/shire cross. How old is she and how much as she grown since she was born? If she is growing too fast, you'll want to back off what she is consuming above what she gets from the mare and hay.

Hello gorgeous filly O_o I live in Texas too. If you ever get tired of her send her this way! That's going to be one big boned horse <3

Can you believe this weather? XD it was 86 down here in Katy, yesterday. The poor horses (we have a bunch of minis with HUGE winter coats. They never did get the memo that they live in Texas) thought they were going to die.

I agree with Left Hand Percherons....Clyde or Shire cross. The coloring and the hocks! My draft cross has a weird tail...the black tail is curly and the white part is silky straight. Beautiful baby!

My goodness she is so beautiful and robust.

Lol thank you guys so much! I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when she arrived, the only background I had was that the dam (buckskin) and a grey mare that we bought from a guy in Magnolia TX, had been purchased from a Dr. Apparently he had 300+ acres and bought 40 horses, which included 6 studs. Of course I don't know if that was true or not considering I can't get ahold of the seller now! But I got a pretty baby out of the deal! I'll post pics as she grows and we can see how she turns out. I've never used a forum before and this first experience has been great! Very informative and friendly 8)

I would say it is a big possibility for a draft cross. They are pretty amazing! Pretty stereotypical opinion but maybe a Clydesdale cross?

Wow, what a gorgeous baby! I agree with everyone else, considering the bone mass and the shape of her body, I can definitely see some draft in her. Just knowing the texas area, I would venture a guess that it's probably clyde because shires aren't too common in this part of the country.

You completely lucked out to have such a pretty and healthy surprise baby. She also looks like she'll grow up to be well conformed as well .

Yes, please post pics as she gets older!
