OMG!!! You are so lucky!!!! He is GORGEOUS!!! I cannot believe someone sent him to slaughter!!! My info says that Ardennais are from 14.3 to 16 hands. They are bay, roan & chesnut. Originally from France. They are calm, tolerant & hardy, with a large head & compact body. Anyway whatever he is, he is a looker!! I would get a foal or 2 outta him for sure! Does he ride?

Thanks you guys! You gave me a good laugh Redial :)
And he's not rideable yet, we have some work to do.
Just want to reiterate reservations with breeding him is not the color thing, color schmular, just my own sensitivity to the HUGE amount of horses going for slaughter in Canada, I have always considered myself to be a "rescuer" not an assistant to creating more horses that may unintentionally end of being meated. Not that papered horses all too often don't meet the same demise here. Just a personal sensitivity issue I guess.
I do sincerely appreciate all of your comments and I am mostly likely swayed towards offering his stud services now, so thank you :)
Any continual feedback on his breed is appreciated!!
I have sent pictures to the only Ardennes breeder I could find on the net and she is graciously looking into it for me too.

LOL.. I will keep you guys informed if we decide to collect from him.
The breeder I contacted said she's not sure if DNA would show Ardenne lines but possibly Belgian, which doesn't help our cause much, but its still worth looking into.
