Draft Crosses!

Because I love my draft cross so much, I thought I'd share some pictures :) Feel free to post some pictures if you have one, too!


This is Callie. She turned 3 in August :)

The first picture is when she was 3 days old, then about 2-3 months old, 8 months old, 2 years old, then finally 3 years old. She's my babyyy and I love her so much

Thanks! She's a wonderful horse. It has been fun raising her since she was 8 months and definitely a learning experience. I loved draft crosses so I got lucky when I found shire x paint with that little face next to the ad :P

Haha she would GLADLY accept a kiss from anyone on her little nose :)

Wink

This is Ricky Bobby... Mom is a Percheron, don't know what dad was. He's 8 months old now, just shy of 16hh and is one of the wonders of the world to the wife and I. We almost lost him last week to sand colic. We had a horrible couple of days, but the lil guy pulled through it and we're on a good road to full recovery now.

He's adorable! He has the sweetest eyes and cutest face!

8 months at almost 16 hands?! You're going to have a giant on your hands! Haha

Thank you...

I forgot to mention that we had no idea mom was pregnant. I went out to feed her one morning and he was standing next to her in the stall.

A pleasant surprise! My jaw would've dropped to the floor if that happened to me.

The breeder said she was surprised herself with Callie because one day her dam was missing somewhere in her many-acres field and the next, the dam was coming out from behind the trees and back creek with a foal at her side :)
Foals are sooo stinkin' cute. When I was a kid, the barn I went to had a yearly breeding program. Paint/QH foals that I wanted so bad but instead I got the 20 year old gelding that no one wanted :P Finally got a foal when I was in college.
