How to tell the true age of a Belgian Draft Horse?
I just recently bought my first horse a Belgian Draft Horse. I was told he was eight years old but, he did not have any papers so I could not get a guarantee that he really was eight. I was just wondering because he is Sorrel colored and where his brown is he has little random patches of white like little white circles randomly on his body especially on his rear end. And neck area? Is that normal in a sorrel colored horse or could he be graying because of age? Is there any way to accurately tell how old he is without having an expert examine him? I just don't want to be over riding him or anything if he is older and needs special care.
