PMU colts are good christmas presents!

This guy is shipping in someting in the next two weeks. I'm Sooo excited. He's the first draft cross I've gotten to own myself, and the first Draft baby I've gotten to work with. There were 6 or 7 adult Percherons and Belgiuns at a rescue stable I worked at, but they were all over 8.
This colt was born may 18th 2008, so 7 months, almost. He was just weaned on the 20th.
The site labled him as Draft/QH and I'm trying to figure out what the draft was. The Stable had Percherons Belgiuns and Shire's, and I don't think it was a Belgiun from his conformation. I'm thinking Percheron from the color and hoping for huge, any thoughts?

How cute is he???? Where is he from? My colt is a PMU from Ranch 1 in Canada, had about the same build at that age. Now he's 4 and huge! He's a wonderful horse though. I was told belgian/TB but am more and more convinced he's actually clyde/TB. Congratulations. They are soo much fun and well worth the wait. My guy is training like a dream :)

Ohh thank you!! I saw him and just fell in love!! I got him from Blue Moon Ranch, they have closed out of the PMU business and are helping as many other closing ranches in the business find homes for their horses as they can. The Animali Farm in CA is their US counterpart from what they are telling me, and both are easily found online. I was stunned at the number of horses they had ready to go, and they are lined up behind that. The premarin market went from about 5,000 barns to 400, so all those horses need homes now. I've worked with a woman in Vermont who helped place them a few years ago. Anyone willing to put the time in will be well rewarded, I just couldn't pass him up.

PMU foals are fantastic just as long as you have the experience to handle them. I have owned horses both well trained and completely green 3/4 of my life and I bought 3 in the fall of last year. Two of them were registered full blown drafts. They were barely weaned when they arrived to me which something to be expected. When they arrive they are sometimes in really rough shape and they have never been in contact with a human, other than being chased on a trailer for the trip. Non of them are halter broke, or lead. You are dealing with essentially a wild foal that will probably weight 2 times more that of an average horse. It's a totally different ball game. Be prepared to use different methods of training as by the time they come to you they are already to large to be bossed around as the really young ones.

If you have the experience to work passed that and the patience and the facility to do so, than my any means do so.

I did it and they turned out to be the best horses I've ever owned as I brought them up the way I wanted but I will say even being the horse owner that I am, I found it to be very challenging and trial giving at times.
