Okay about me and my boy. My name is courtney I have been riding about 11 years. My horses name is Hanz he is a 3 yr old Belgian draft horse gelding. Right now he stands at 16.3 and is estimated to be about 17 to 171/2 hands tall and approx 2,000 lbs but are really not sure yet. We will see when he is 5 yrs old if we estimated it right. Hanz was an amish horse and wasn't taken care of at all. They rushed him and hooked him up and when they did he got scared and fell and hairline fractured his hip. They kept him in a stall for almost 7 months. The girl I got him from got him and put the weight on him and found that no one wanted him nor wanted to take the chance on him breaking down. My sis in law works at the docs office as a nurse where this lady goes for check-ups. Well she was telling my sis in law that if she knew anyone that wanted a draft horse to let her know. My sis in law goes well that is funny you should say that cause my husbands sister meaning me is looking for a draft horse. She told her that I lost my draft horse 2 years ago after rescueing him from slaughter and owning him for 4 1/2 years and doing everything and anything with him. This lady told my sis in law that I could go down. So they set up this whole surprise and I went down and next thing I know I meet hanz. I went to see him 5 times and she told me the 3rd time I was out there that if I wanted him I could have him as long as I gave him a great, loving and forever home I agreed and the day I said yes I will take him was the 2 yr anniversary of my horses death. I am so happy I got him. He has helped me in so many ways.
