I want them to keep their hands off The Clydesdale too...LOL. I like my Clydes to have Cow Hocks, roman noses, long flowing manes, long legs and high rising gait, great big fat bums and strong powerful shoulders. Exactly as they were bred in my native Scotland. Apparently, some American has posted on a well known animal site that Clydesdales were bred only as 'flashy carriage' horses as their feet were too big to plough. How that made us laugh. When Clydesdales were bred in Scotland, only 'The Laird' had a carriage and the majority of Scotland was farming, coal/peat and fishing communities. Yep the Clydes pulled carts but the only flashy carriage horses were in America.
