I know that it is well meaning sometimes, but the icing on the cake was when I emailed a farrier about becoming clients (we are on a small remote island - I need to find that *special* one that will come to us) and he told me it was too far and then "Good luck with your horses. Drafts come with big vet bills!"
Oh geez, I'm really starting to regret this a little, and I haven't even gotten to know them yet. I've never owned drafts before, but QHs for many many years, many years ago.
Is this negative advice/warnings that I'm getting just because people don't understand drafts, or am I in for it more than I would have been with a couple little Arabians or something? I find this hard to believe but I'm in that stage where I know that I don't know anything so I thought I would put it out to all you wise draft admirers.
