Clydesdale filly

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.

Thanks for looking

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.

I've also never owned a draft...but wow, she's sooo cute. :) I love her face. Good luck with her if you decide to get her.

Ride more, worry less.

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 have no idea what a clydesdale should look like but she is beautiful. Her face is so sweet looking and her eyes look full of trust. Hope you get her.

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!

For sure. I couldn't really make up my mind as to whether or not I liked her because of her funny leg markings. She only has 2 full stockings and the rest is weird bits and pieces here and there.

yeah, she does have interesting leg markings. But that what makes her unique. =)
