LOL, pretty is as pretty does
. If the foals are born sturdy with good minds, then that's a lot more important than looking pretty. I get where you're coming from though, pretty is always better than ugly given that the horse has a good mind and strong body.
If you haven't found anything by next April, you might look up here Southcentral Kansas Draft Horse & Mule Sale - Kingman, Kansas
We've tried to go at least once a year since I was a little bitty kid and they usually have at least some
really nice draft and draft x stock up there. Even if they don't have anything at the sale, there will be folks there that know where there might be some elsewhere that isn't halfway across the country.
Kingman would probably still be a 8+ hour drive for you, but that's the only respectable sale I have any personal experience with that specializes in draft types.
