Ok....are you talking about the (french) canadien???, 99% most of the time black on average 14 and 16 hnds, bred back in the 1600's in lower canada (quebec) by farmers to get the perfect draft, big boned but yet small that could be worked hard in the field and yet riddable.....we had 2 of them at the barn that I boarded at when I lived in montreal, barron was a nut case, was too much for the 60 year old women who owned him, rolled a cart on her once (ran the cart up the side of a manure pile and flipped it) pumpkin was a great horse up untill his near death accident.....followng another horse to closley on a high ridge and stumbled back wards slidding about 150 ft to the bottom (air lifted ridder and took awhile for them to get him out) he's now just a pet...a very sweet one. I find that there good horses, just base how they are by who you buy them from.
