I am looking for a gray draft or half draft stud or yearling colt (not gelded).
I have looked at a couple of gray Percheron horses but they appear to be really low backed. I have driven and used a lot of Belgians but have not been around a lot of Percherons. Are they usually pretty low backed? How do they carry big riders?
The person wanting this stud wants to raise big, easy-going, gray horses weighing 1400 - 1600# out of gray AQHA mares. I do not guess I have seen any gray drafts other than Percherons. Is there anything else out there? A gray 1/2 draft would work, but I do not have any idea where to look for one.
Can anyone help enlighten me? I have no experience at all with drafts under saddle and no experience with Percherons at all.
