I think Shires are going exctinct??

I don't think they are going to dissapear so soon, of course they quantity is downgrading, there are still enthusiasts who won't let us forget about them ;)
There are shire breeders in many countries on almost 4 continents around the world. I hope this unique and wonderful breed won't be extinct!

And there's a thing - on the list from link above, on Wikipedia - it contains "Mazury" as Wielkopolski horse, but this breed is for sure not extinct!

I think shires will remain for a while but sooner or later you wont be able to tell the difference between them and clydesdales because people are using clydesdales a lot to "better" the shire breed. That's what I heard from englands leading shire and clydesdale judge anyway.

Yeah, clydes and shires are interbred like crazy, especially around here. Sometimes you can't even tell the difference. I've seen quite a few 'pure bred' shires with white on their bellies and legs.

That's a pity that they mix those breeds so much - I like shires much more and I think they sould remain in their own pure breed. Maybe they are similar and such but there are some real differences between those breeds, and I don't really like the effects of crossing them.

The Hungarian breed - North Star -

Though not extinct the North Star breed is no longer registered as a breed with the authorities in Budapest, instead they are now considered part of the Furioso breed. Always linked the two breeds were originally bred in the south of the country at the same stud. The Furioso blood lines coming from a stallion called Furioso and the North Star coming from a Stallion called North Star.

The North Star is lighter boned than the Furioso and are predominantly black in colour , they are a very beautiful horse and have a good temperament.

I was fortunate to have one of the last of the North Star breed to be branded with the dedicated North Star brand ( which is no longer used )- she is now living in the UK with wonderful owners who will look after her properly.
