I don't know how to post pics on here, but if you go to my horses I have three draft mixes on there.

Here are some pictures of my sweet big puppy dog. She's a 6 year old Percheron Appy cross. I've been searching on the next for more crosses like her but don't find too many. I love Percheron crosses... they always seems to have that solid build and if bred with a lighter breed it adds that refinement. Misty is a beautiful mover and has awesome sweet temperament !! Please feel free to comment .

Awwwwww.. your grey looks like my perch cross . Gorgeous !!!

They do look quite similar, don't they? How tall is your mare? She is lovely!

As an update here are some newer photos of my "little" guy Finn, my Percheron/Oldenburg cross. These photos are from a year apart -- the first one on April 18, 2011 the day I got him, and the second April 18, 2012. He's grown a hand in the hind end this year. And so much improvement, I think. He's growing up!

Thanks so much. She's only 15.3 hh ...but looks taller than that ..especially since getting into shape. When I first got her she was obese and her hooves were awful. With a change in diet , exercise, and a great barefoot practitioner she's looking - and feelin awesome !! :)

Zulu, Irish Draught x Thbd

He is NOT my horse, but I part lease him and love him to insane levels.
He is like a giant stuffed toy, I mean look at those beady black eyes! He has the kindest personality and is as light as a feather to the bit or leg.

Wow ! Zulu is gorgeous. I love his big broad head ...and such a kind face .

Here's a little clip of my baby girl free lunging for me outside ...I'm not sure what direction to go with her yet. She's free jumped and seemed to really enjoy it a lot too :)
