Awesome! Geeze, they're so graceful when they're running! It kinda looks like slow-motion!

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

I love how it looked like some of them were on a stroll, and others were practically practicing levitation xD and they were so CALM before and after the race!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

Wow that was cool! Thanks for sharing! I love to watch draft horses run xD when my belgian runs around he looks like a foal with his little tail and ganly legs :3

The race reminds me a bit if the ban-ei races in japan, except those drafts pull weighted sleighs, not riders :P
