    Thank you, I am pretty proud of him! I have always admired drafts and after we bought some land earlier this year, I knew I would finally be able to have one some day. I didn't expect to get one so soon but the stars just seemed to align. He is about 18H and registered as black but has alot of gray throughout. He was used to give riding lessons to children a few years back so I am hoping that my hubby will try to learn to ride. Other than that, I will probably just use him to ride around the farm and as a companion to my barrel horse. I am anxious to see how he will look this spring when he sheds out and has some weight on him.

    I was told he is broke to drive and I would be interested in learning how to do that someday also.

    He's handsome, and you'll have a lot of fun keeping that tail groomed! My Percheron's tail is almost the exact same - super thick and wavy.

    What's his name?

    He's a beautiful boy. I normally have the farrier trim the ergots on my big horses because a) I'm not strong enough to balance their feet with one hand and use the nippers with the other and b) his nippers are sharper than mine are so it's easier for him.

    I love the little billy goat beard he has in that picture of him at home.
