I had a foal by this guy that I started as a dressage prospect, but I don't have any of the pics here! He was the most naturally on-the-bit horse I've ever ridden, and had alot of energy and attitude. He did great piaffes ground driving down the street >.< Huge as he looks, this stallion is only 16HH. He's "Brabant", or European bloodline Belgian.

He is an interesting combination of colors...and his feathers!! Sort of Shire with Gypsy-type feathering. I'm wondering what he looks like when he sheds out, or is he?

I believe that the Brabants are often seen in a roan color. Gorgeous, but I wouldn't want to take care of those feathers.

Here is a pic off of google.

Here's one of me on Dude last weekend, I believe. Just working in basic leg cues, trot and neck-reining.(: He did better than I'd expected.

Thats what my guy is, he's just little copared! He's a roan brabant, but he just came out with the blonde hair instead of the grey/black. Makes the feathers even harder because they're light colored haha
But anywho, I was going to post on here anyway, just though this was the appropriate time :p

Just love the pics Iseul and drafeventer. Iseul, your "Dude" has such great coloring! So cool, and I love the look of Remington too...but I would not like to keep up with those feathers, especially in the muddy spring :(
    02-22-2011, 11:02 PM
Yeah, they're tough, but I keep them anyway just because it's part if his breed and it would feel weird/wrong to clip them.

Thank you.(: He is such a lovely colour with beautiful sabino markings, even though his attitude doesn't always reflect it. :p
I love him to death and wish I could buy him instead of just leasing him. ;;
I wouldn't be able to keep up with that many feathers either, I can barely keep Dude's small amount clean. D: I guess that's mostly in part that he tries to kick my head off as soon as I take the comb down. ;; Just gotta keep workin' on it, haha.

Here's two new ones of Legacy my Vanner mare and one of Caleigh my Clydesdale.
The jump one of Legacy is a 11 inch log. She's a cute little bunny. In shows she does hopeful level-beginning novice with ease. I'll be keeping her at that range for a long time.

Ps: please ignore my puppy paw hands and bad leg placement. It was a mess around day at the park.
