Thanks Barney, he has just been turned out to pasture ever since we got him as a yearling and we keep a mix of high quality grass hay and alfalfa out there all the time so they can eat as much and as often as they want. All of them are kinda fat. :P

I will be working to ground train a 4 year old Percheron/Arabian cross soon. He's been kept at pasture his whole life and has never had any formal training. I'm very excited to work with him.

He's not my horse, but I'll get some pictures of him up here as soon as I have some. Oh by the way, his name is Pride. Isn't that such a great name for a Draft cross?

Sorry a bit overposted, but I can't help it, I love my boy, and this photographer, was just so kind to take these shots for me, just out of the blue, as she was taking shots of her friend there.
OMG..that is one big horse... and how do you people manage when these horses get moody or spook...I'm thinking you would be easily dragged anywhere this big boy would want to go

Or maybe just stupid :P

Yeah, but I am pretty confident about it though. Ideally this horse should have been worked with on ground training much earlier but that just never happened. The people that own him got him as a surprise baby when they bought their first horse, a retired arabian broodmare. They weren't expecting the giant bundle of joy that nearly killed its mother during foaling . Now they have a big baby on their hands they're not sure what to do with. I'm happy, and very excited to help. I don't have my own horse at the moment (I just resently had to sell my horse, another draft cross) so I'm thankful for an opportunity to work with another horse. I'm having horse withdrawals .

Here's Sunshine. I got her two years ago from the kill pen at a local auction. She was headed for slaughter.

This is Big Poppa Shugs out of the same kill pen. Got him this November.

This is Maddie, my Belgian/QH X mare:

Okay, I went out and meet Pride yesterday, he's a four or five year old Percheron/Arabian cross. I had so much fun with him and can't wait to go out and work with him again.

Here are some pictures of him. I'm sorry he's so dirty, we've had a lot of rain recently and thus a lot of mud. I groomed him as best I could but he doesn't tie and no one was there to hold him for me so... yay... we will be working on the whole tying thing very soon.


He is a very curious boy. He really was fascinated by the sounds my camera made. Later my cell phone rang and he got so excited and tried to get it out of my pocket .

Very messy boy.

I have some short video clips of him too if you guys want to see them. You really get a sense of his personality.

What a lovely horse - he is just stunning! I LOVE clydes an own a clyde cross myself. He's 17.2 or so but not nearly as big as your guy as you can def see the TB in him.

Oh and the coat on that Perch is AMAZING! I love seeing pics of happy horses!

Here are a few of Duke, my clyde cross.

He's light enough that we can get away with the hunters and has the form for it, but we usually show eventing and dressage.
