My Cadillac

This is Cadillac (Caddy) She is an 11 year old Perch. A rescue foal from a PMU Farm in North Dakota, who ended up in Califonia and is now in Central British Columbia. She is the lead mare-Queen Bee. Pretty darn willfull, but I have yet to see her spook at any thing, or refuse to cross or go through anything. AND when she slows down her lope or trot, it is to die for...bareback heaven! Her manners have come a long way since we got her. Her first owners believed in brute force and used a lot of ropes, her second owner tip toed around her and baby taked to her... She is a small 16.2--but is probably 16.2 wide also

Beautiful girl you've got there!

ONE horsepower, TWO-THOUSAND lb/ft torque... If it doesn't weigh a ton, it's just a horse....

I don't think of hattie as a draftie, but I think haflingers probably are, so here she is and her baby Gilda (nearly 3 now)




Gilda

As far as I'm concerned they are... They're "shorter" drafts....

Good looking for sure!

Haflinger

This is my Haflinger (part draft) :)

Then the black guy our youngest Clydesdale Private Tucker, and the biggest & older Clyde Maquarther's Duramax Diesel.

Hafies are drafties, just shorter! I would ride one of those too no problem!

I have a soft spot for drafts and draft crosses. My first two horses were Belgian mixed with QH.
Here is a picture of my first horse Jenn. 16.2


I owned this fellow for a little while, but had to sell him due to no time. He ended up going to a petting zoo. Bucky a 15 hand Fjord


And I trained this horse for someone. He was a Percheron/Paint/Saddlebred.
He was a joy to ride! His gaits were incredibly smooth. And, you can't complain about the smoky buckskin paint. He was about 16.2.
Sonny


I really hope I can get more drafties sometime! I love working with them, and they're so fun to ride.

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
