I voted "other" because I don't really have a favorite. I have only really had experience with Percherons and Belgians but they each have their qualities that I love. Belgians tend to be more mellow and honest and Percherons are a bit flashier and come in my favorite color, black. I have one of each right now and one half breed of each as well and they all have their own little quirks that draw me to them.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
