I have been around Draft horses yes and that is why I love them lol I do know it is not going to be a good first horse unless I happen to come across an old lad with extreme manners for adoption/sale (highly unlikely I am sure).
I think I will look at breed standards, just to get an idea, but not limit my search to just those breeds in case I come across one from another breed that does not fit their standards, yet a more calm one :)
Are there any stickies or links anybody can provide me with that helps pick breeds? They have a link for dog owners to match their lifestyle and wants to a few breeds of dogs. Also does anybody know if its easy to find a stable where I could volunteer? I was thinking of finding some near my home since I live across the street from horse property and somehow contacting them besides walking up to their door
Thanks for all the different insights everyone :)
