He is a very cute boy!

Please at least put caps on those t-posts right away. I would hate for him to get hurt on one.

This happened to me! When I inquired about a horse, the owner called him an Anglo-Morgan. I thought 'never heard of that' but assumed that it meant TB X Morgan. I did buy him and when I was looking at his pedigree it turned out he was an Anglo-Arab, ah that was more normal! And I thought he looked Araby. Turns out Anlgo-Morgans are being bred, but they are not yet a 'recognized' cross breed yet, they are reasonably new.

Your horse is gorgeous btw and I think he has Percheron conformation but his head is more 'intelligent' looking like a Belgian. And Mr. Moose really suits him!

don't worry we are working on the fence.
We are learning how this hot wire stuff works.
How big would you all suggest a round pen be for these big guys?

What are you wanting a round pen for?

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

For me to practice riding him in. I've been told about 60ft or more but not sure what would be good for his size.

Im haven't rode in years and I want to feel good about where im working with him.

His head looks like my filly's sire. He's a Clydesdale though

I've had 2 people that have been around drafts all their life and BOTH swear up and down that he is a FULL Perch.
IDK
Seems like no one really knows...but everyone tells me they do not see Belgian AT ALL...and no QH either.
His coggins papers say half belgian, half perch....but it coulda been a stable helper at the time who just made a guess when the vet was filling out the paperwork...So you really don't know.
