Percheron?

Just recently picked up this gelding (Hoss) great temperment,trained to drive, pulled a carriage so I was told.. Probably is all true have not worked with him much yet as he needed to put some weight on and hoofs were really overgrown. Not sure about the percheron? Have not seen one this color x poss? What does everyone think
Oh he,s 18.1 HH 2200 lbs

Thanks

Perch come in grey, it's not as sought after I would thing, but they do come in that color. There is a member here that has a grey mare.

He sure looks like a perch

1st time with a percheron are they usualy very agile? He moves like a cutting horse and can keep up with my throughbred cross?

He is a very typical percheron color. There are mostly black or grey. He looks like a percheron x percheron to me . He most likely has a black sire or dam and that's one reason he is such a strong non white grey.

I don't know anything special about Percheron (besides I've always thought their temperament to be to die for.), is that picture of you riding him?? I just wanted to (kindly) point out that saddle appears to not fit him, and really sits on his withers.

1st time with a saddle on him, looking for a better fit.

He looks like a full percheron to me. Do you know how old he is? I would venture a guess that he's probably younger than 8-10 just due to his color. He will continue to get more and more white as he gets older.

He's a very good looking boy. Congrats on bringing him home.

I've been told that even the white percherons are born black. I don't know this for sure, I don't have any perchs, or anybody that can have babies so I'm just going off of what I heard.
I like his coloring, its different, but I don't show so I dont' have an eye for show color I just like what I like.
If he's a cross I think it would be with some other draft.

The color is called Grey, there is no such thing as a true white horse, they die at birth.

All Grey horses are born a darker color, then turn grey as they get older.

I've raised greys that were born grey and one black that was born grey so there are no hard rules.
