All righty, so I have a few questions. I know I can Google some of these, but I'd rather hear from everyday people who work with Drafts on a daily basis :) Thanks so much if you take the time to answer my rather ignorant questions!
1. I can by no means buy my first horse at this stage, but I know that I will be doing so at some point and I've started looking at different breeds. I guess I'm wondering what the general traits of Drafts are, since I find myself unexpectedly and suddenly obsessed with them. I saw a few pictures and was hooked. What can I say :)
2. Are they fairly suitable for beginners? "Beginner" being someone like me, who hasn't been riding for very long at all and is new to the horse world in general. I'm not afraid of a challenge, but I hope you know what I mean by this...
3. Is anyone here who owns Drafts living in South Africa, or has anyone heard of them being here? I've only ever seen one Friesian farm here (not that I went looking, but they just seem rare).
Thanks again for your time! :) I will now spend two hours downloading more pictures of them and making an enormous list of books to read about them
