Here is a mare I am currently looking at buying. Technically a filly actually. She is a registered Clyde, turned 1 in May. She was shown by the breeders (so she is very broke) but didn't quite make it. Her lack of 4 stockings was probably part of the problem.She is a Registered Clyde despite the fact :)
Any views on those of you who currently have a full draft, something wrong I might be missing? A concern you might have, something I should be asking or looking for different to that of buying a "regular" horse.
I have never owned a draft, but I used to ride a stable that had a shire breeding program (honestly, I didnt pay much attention because I was focused on the tb gelding I used to ride). She is super cute! I like her face, she seems very sweet.
Not an expert by any means but-her back is short, straight and strong looking, very nice rounded hip and bum, straight strong legs, has that very Clyde face with a big eye, I think she looks pretty typy of the breed which is great and she is a doll!
I think she looks very much what I clyde should look like. (Other than the 4 stockings which some people think they should all have)
It's also awesome that she is trained very well already, should make the saddle breaking go easier for you. I also like that if she has been shown, they have probably done her feet and being so young probably not on a tipping table. Which should make it easier for you and your farrier to handle!
