I will be getting my first draft horse in a week or two. She is a 13 year old, 18H Clydesdale mare, ex-show horse, trained to drive single to 4 abreast, currently trains the youngsters and purported to be very quiet. I am going to see her this week so ensure she'll be quiet enough for me to harness/handle on my own.
I have other horses/donkeys so basic care isn't a problem but besides the harness and wagon/sleigh I'll be looking for, what else do you consider a must have for the big ones? The first thing that comes to mind is some sort of platform to brush and harness her. Does anyone have any ingenious ideas for a platform (I'm thinking of all the wooden pallets we have around here).
