Jaydee...I love your babies. Short and stocky is the best way to go for me! I never have to worry if I look too big. I don't ever feel that way, even on my 14.1hh draft cross. Love em'.
We have a draft horse equipement and auction in Tulare, CA every fall. Really good stuff is auctioned off and quite cheap. There are some wonderful horses too. There are regulars that sell their stock...some of them are amish out of Colorado I believe. They have a good reputation and I would feel safe buying their stock. Like Left Hand Percheron said, some of these horses are used as machines and earn their keep on their farms, and once they can't earn their keep any longer, they are sold. This doesn't always mean that they are then useless by any means, just can't work as hard and would appreciate being a trail horse.
