    I'm going to have to agree with solon on this one, I really don't see any draft in him. This book focuses more on the team and driving aspects of owning but I thought it was interesting.
    Draft Horses and Mules, Storey's Working Animal Ser., Gail Damerow, Book - Barnes & Noble

    I have no idea what this one is about but it looks interesting.
    Horsepower, Cris Peterson, Book - Barnes & Noble

    Other than when they mature, I have found that my Percheron stud is no different than any other horse that I have messed with. He eats a little more and needs bigger shoes but he still learns the same way. He kinda learns faster because he is very laid back and mellow.

    Hmm, perhaps the photo doesn't do him justice in showing the draft in him, but he's got it in him for sure, his hooves sure show it, along with that oversized noggin.

    Thanks for finally recommending a book title!

    How is he as far as being a stallion goes, any aggressiveness or anything like that?

    Absolutely no aggression in him (yet). You can never really be 100% sure of a stallion. The only thing that I have noticed is that when he is around strange horses, his head comes up and he gets anxious to go meet them. I am unsure yet as to whether that is because he is a stud or just because he is still a young guy and has a lot to learn. Ground manners are excellent and has perfect respect for my space even though just one of his legs probably weighs more than I do. LOL
