Great pics! I love that you said that about him laying down, I swear Rose wants to roll sometimes when I am still up there.

Bah this thread isn't helping! All of these drafts are too gorgeous!

Looking for another nice riding draft at the moment and I am just not finding anything.

Not sure if this really counts? ;)

You should really get something taller to stand on. If she decides to get out from under you, you want a little more height to be able to come down on and something a little more sturdy. Are you doing any ground work with her?

She is the second one I've backed and the last one was 13hh so I'm still sort of seeing what is going to work for me, so something a bit taller? Maybe one of the bigger mounting blocks.. hmm.

Yeah, she has had basic ground work done but I am continuing on with that.

The one thing I've seen that is very different with drafts, you've really got to earn their trust. So, just don't rush it. Take it easy with the backing until she knows you. And definitely get something taller.

I use a 55 gallon drum for my 18 hand Percheron and even that isn't very steady! I've fallen off it twice!
