Rofl! Thanks OTTBLover. I hate to sound all unicorn farts and rainbow spit but I adore this horse, right down to his pink nose. Black, brown....doesn't matter. He is just my Hugo.

coffeegod, if Hugo is a purebred percheron like it says on his page, then he's almost definitely a true black. Percherons usually only come in grey or black.

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.

Off topic but I wanted to let you know how to put more than one breed on there. When you are selecting the breed, if you hold down the Ctrl key, you can select more than one breed. That's how I did both my crosses.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
