    He looks like a Suffolk, but I think they are generally smaller. Aren't they usually in the only around 15.3 hh?

    Don't let the picture fool you for the horse's size. The guy in standing a distance back from the horse, and since we don't know how far, it could be 6 inches or 6 feet, making the horse appear quite large and the man appearing quite small.

    I'm still searching for what breed it might be. Even though a lot of people said Sufflok, the picture was around the 1915 era,

    I found this picture, not sure of the breed, but they do look similar


    If I find more information, i'll post it



    Possibly a Belgian.

    He can't be standing too far back; his shadow goes between the horse's front legs.

    Kraeusen, so you know by any chance where your great-grandfather got the horse? Did he come here with the horse? Or did he buy him while he was already here?

    No Belgians have very distinct features, like a overly large head and their forehands are always heavier then the hind end.

    It might be a smaller more compact draft breed. I'm still thinking Suffolk
