Which horse you choose is going to depend upon what you want to do with him and if he has the talent or skills to do it. You can't base it on breed alone.

But to answer your question, the only thing Percherons as a breed do better than Clyde is pulling. I have yet to see any Clydes in any pulling competion. Percherons however will never be in the same league as Belgians in this competition.

Percheron's are alot easier keepers also, it seems. You can pretty much keep a perch fat on bird food (ok not really) and may need to keep a lil closer eye on the clyde. Otherwise, the height difference, percheron's are on average shorter. Yup Will agree with Left, otherwise.

It is entirely unfair to bypass on one just because he/she is a different breed of draft. Every horse has their strengths and weaknesses. Go look at both and see which individual is right for YOU.

Bob aint bypassing on any horse, just wanting the pro's and con's on the breeds each breed of horse has them, depending on what each person is looking for its not unfair, just how it is. That's WHY they started this thread to get information.

Personally, though I love the Clyde markings, I prefer Percherons in looks. I believe they've had some Arab influence, which is why alot have very nice heads & seem more "elegnant" in looks & motion than the Clydes do. Percherons are also generally stockier & less "gangly" looking than the Clyde. Just my PO.

Considering that the OP hasn't even logged back on after posting a single time, I'm willing to be that he/she isn't all that interested in our information.
