Can't believe I have only just discovered this thread... and with it the concept of a shire/TB cross *drool*...
I have Canelo, 11-year-old Percheron/Chilean cross with a mane-rubbing habit. Doesn't do much in the field except eat, sleep, and do an excellent impression of a horse statue, but under saddle he's lovely.
The day he arrived. Needed some groceries, a foot trim, and for his tail to have the massive club-like dreadlock taken out of it. You can just see it in silhouette.
Lunging (boyfriend learning to lunge at the same time...)
Smiling for the camera (or just not impressed with the taste of his new vitamins)
In the process of learning to be a packhorse. How huge is is head in this picture?
And one last one, in his winter woollies and after three months of being a pasture puff and hanging around with his girlfriends waiting for them to foal...
OK, that's enough now. I like my grandpa horse.
