My gelding is 50% Percheron and 50% paint. He was 15hh and ~1000lbs as a 2yo.

Hmm, I've also got one that's half percheron, half paint. He's coming 4 this June and he's currently standing 15.3 and probably weighs 1200 pounds. Size wise, he takes more after his paint momma than his 18hh daddy. I honestly don't remember how big he was at 2. Maybe somewhere around 14.3 and 1000?

He's the black and he's always into everything. He even has to get in the middle of me scratching another horse LOL. He's a little bit derpy, but I love him anyway.









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/

Here's Flirt! Again! Hahaha. He's a feral little wild child out in the paddock at the moment. Got a hell of a shock coming in a few months time when he gets pulled out and sent away to be started under saddle!

Your going to get hurt if you keep letting him watch those old wrastlin' reruns with Vern Gagne and Nick Bockwinkel doing dropkicks.

This is a picture of my 1st and only draft that I purchase on 4/4/14. I have been working with him on mounting block issues. He's not afraid of it, he just wouldn't stand beside it for mounting. The people that I purchased him from would just drive their pickup out into the pasture, saddle him up, and use the back of the truck for mounting. Making him work when he stepped away from the block wasn't working. What I finally had to do was stand on top of it and lunge him around it. Then let him stop in front of it and rest.
He is the smoothest riding horse. Here is a picture of my niece relaxing on him. His name is Casey.

He's a percheron/belgian cross. My next project is to get him to stand there long enough for me to braid that long mane of his.

Drafty butts! I love Sam's Clyde x Appy butt end. I don't know what it is (maybe the draft?) but I think he has an awesome rump.
