I am a total draft lover these days.
I have always wanted a Clyde or a Shire.... we have a Belgian mare named Epona.
She is the love of my son's life. We bought her while our other horse was dying, as she had been abandoned at the farm we were boarding at. She kept our dying horse company in his final days on this earth, and kept my son from sinking into despair over the death of his other horse.
She is such a fantastic and calm horse....she makes the perfect trail horse. And she means more to my son than his own life. He adores her!
A while back, I made a video tribute to our OTTB, here is one I made for our Belgian beauty.....
She's not flashy and silly like our OTTB, and most people don't like drafts much....but I am hoping this video will touch some people out there and foster an appreciation of these huge, powerful and gentle horses.....
I love those drafts!
