I figured I would start a thread asking everyone - what is your favorite thing about drafts? Feel free to post more than one (there's so many!) I also want to hear your cute draft stories!
I'll start. One of favorite things about drafts is their gentleness. When I first started riding, my instructor put me on Pearl, a full Belgian. I was intimidated by her massiveness, but I shouldn't have worried she took great care of me and still does as she teaches me to jump. I now volunteer at a therapeutic barn, where we have a Shire. I love watching him with the kids - he's so careful not to step on them with his dinner plate hooves and he'll put his head down so the littlest ones or the kids in wheelchairs can pet him.
I can't wait to hear everyone else's favorites and stories!
