Do half drafts get feathered feet?

I was wondering if half drafts get the furry feet. Charlie is half clydes/TB. Here are some pics.
Cash the daddy

Charlie

Hind feet

Front with his ringlets

I had to throw his cute nose in there as well. LOL

IME, sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. It doesn't look like your guy is going to have the heavy feathering like a true draft but he won't have slick legs like a TB either. He'll have some feather but it won't be flashy.

For example, I have 2 half drafts on my property. One is only slightly more feathered than your average quarter horse, the other has feathers almost as thick as his draft daddy.

I know Rocko gets feathers so you have to clip him. :) He's half paint, half unknown draft. (:

Do you think he will be as dark as daddy or lighter like his mom? Im sure I will know as soon as his fuss is all gone, but his dad is really dark and Whiskey had a more reddish coat. I know Charlie is dark now, but curious to she what he will look like when he sheds out.
This is mom Whiskey Mama

I suspect he'll stay darker. I don't know that he'll stay the color of his sire, but he is definitely a brown, not a bay like his momma so he'll always be darker than her.

The sire has extreemly light feathering for a clyde, more like a Percheron or Belgian. You won't have anymore than you already have.

Tanya looking at the back ground in your pics I see some good country side to ride. Good looking country you live in. Do you have lots of trails around there?

Yeah we have a lot of room to ride I just wish I was so afraid to ride them now. LOL. We live right at the bottom of the Wasatch mountain range so there are many trails carved in there plus there are canal roads we also live in a pretty small town that is horse friendly so we can ride in town to.

The guy said he was a clydes, but I also noticed looking back at the pic he has some light feathers. Im happy with just a little less poo balls to clean out of them. LOL
