Either way, he's awesome! I have a soft spot for perchies. I've been told that my BLM Mustang came from a herd in Nevada that had an infusion of percheron blood which really explains his unusual size (16hh), dark color, and massive feet, lol.
Hugo is a Percheron cross. I don't think there is a way to put the cross part in the breed blurb. He was bred in Kentucky on a nurse mare farm. There was a big, black Percheron stud on the farm so we assume that's daddy.
Massive feet...ROFL! Hugo's dinner plates are the largest set of hooves the farrier has seen thus far (the farrier is a young guy...give him time).
Regardless of color, I love my big guy. He may not move fast but by ****, you know he is heading your way.
