new to this forum

Hello horse forum
I am new to this site and fairly new to forums in general. I figure I have a lot of knowledge about horses, and want to share. I have raised Clydesdales for 31 years. In that time probably raised over 60 foals, and been on every birthing but two (that is a story for another time—same mare!). I have driven some very difficult configurations of hitches in over 450 parades and broke all the horses by myself. I have done a lot of doctoring, breeding, most all of the trimming, feeding and everything in-between. In other words I have been there, done that. I am willing to share what I have learned and put my two cents in if questions are asked.

Welcome to the forum. Your post may have done better in the introductions, but I can see why you put it in the Draft section. A horse is a horse though, so I'm sure your knowledge can be utilized in many other aspects as well. Again, welcome!

Welcome! I have a perch/clyde/TB/paint gelding, my first draft and he grew to be 18 hds. which is way more than the 16 hds predicted so I have had fun learning where to get tack, etc. that fits. What do you feed your clydes?

"If a horse fails to do something that is because he was not trained to do it. If a horse fails to do something properly that is because he was not trained properly."
