LOVE bragging about my beasty girl, especially since my other mare is only 13.3hh! Haha! Anyway, this is Eve, my 4YO Clydesdale/TB mare! Still has quite a few baby brain moments, but finally figuring out where her feet are and how to be a respectful member of equine society! Up until this summer I thought she was bay but now it's quite clear she's brown with sabino :) Yay for color enthusiast best friends!









Thanks for sharing everyone else's drafty pics! Love seeing them all, but have to admit Claymore has secretly been a forum favorite of mine for a long time now! :) His character comes through in alot of his pics!

LOL if he ever goes missing she'll have no idea which way to go to look for him, everyone loves Claymore.

*swoon**faint* To both Eve and Pilgrim. I'm a sucker for a buckskin and I can still remember when Eve was a gangly, wild baby LOL. She's grown up gorgeously.

Indy, OMG @ Fiona's height. She's only a inch shorter than Rafe and he's an absolute monster .

Anyway, here are my 2 half draft heathens.

Rafe, 2 year old Belgian X Quarter horse.






And my Percheron X Paint yearling, Taz, in all his fugliness.






And here are a couple of them with my Mustang, Dobe. They were all exactly 1 hand apart at the time: Taz-13.3, Dobe-14.3, Rafe-15.3.



Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yay! I get to join!

Here is my baby. Aires is a 2yo Percheron/paint gelding. He is green broke with only FOUR rides on him.
Sporting our new Aussie saddle that I am completely in love with:

And a conformation shot:

Aires is so gorgeous. He does look a bit embarrassed by the pink though.

It's not pink! It's RED! Lol His halter is red, his lead rope is red...now his saddle pad is red! I think it looks a little more red in this pic 'cuz the sun is out (it was behind a cloud in that other pic):

Still looks pink to me.

That's okay, though. "Tough enough to wear pink", right?

LOL! Something like that. I'm going to be making him a saddle pad for our saddle anyway (the AP pad I had on him is a bit short and it is a far cry cheaper to make a pad than it is to buy one...luckily I am handy with a sewing machine...I've turned into the official barn seamstress, though), so I'll make sure it's a nice, clearly definable red, just for you, sm.

Here's how he REALLY feels about that "pink" saddle pad, though.

Everyone loves him because they aren't the ones wandering around repairing fences in his wake, the little brat lol

*dreamy sigh* Oh Rafe, how I adore thee and wish my 2 yo looks half as good as you and your brawny self...lol

I LOVE the picture of them in ascending height order, Smrobs, that's awesome!
