Drafty, you'd win every match because the guys would fall off their horses before they ever got close to you.

OP, that is just too freaking cool. I love that show (even though the main guy is kind of an egotistical ass....or at least that's how he comes off on the show) and my favorite horse is his Belgian named Jager. He's the shiz-nit.

Did you get to meet any of the guys yet?

Awwww...thanks! Let's just hope they wouldn't be falling off their horses laughing. Seriously, though...I think we'd make good "halftime" entertainment with Aires all decked out in traditional jousting gear and me in my Xena armor. Do some tricks, jumps, etc.

WHAAAAAT?!

Now I knew that dispite the fact that we love to dream about having a draft for our therapy one day, theres no way we could afford that, especially right now. So ofcourse, I knew something was up. I ask the BO and I'm shocked to find out that there are actually six of these 2,500 pound beasties right here on our farm, and not just any old work horses....no.

They're actually the six full-contact Jousting horses (not just the fake performance horses, but the REAL thing) from The Knights of Mayhem that airs on National Geographics every Tuesday, and they're boarding with us for the night while they're performing in Liberty County! ( Knights of Mayhem | Full Contact Jousting )

So ofcourse, I just HAD to take some pictures ;)


Sadly, I wasn't able to get any pictures of the other two blacks or the flaxen chestnut before they left for the joust, but I did get some pretty snazzy shots of the other three!


The big black stud that I first discovered ;D as well as my favorite little disabled kid, meeting him <3



The other black that I got a picture of. He was very interested in us and a total sweety.


I believe that they said this guy is a freisian x perch. They each eat an entire bale of hay every day o.o










And then the big paint colored guy. No clue as to what he is but my guess is partially Gypsey Vanner or something, considering his coloring and the fact that he's 100% draft.


My favorite picture.










Sadly I was still working when they left to the joust, so I didn't get to go see them, but just meeting these guys was great!


Oh, and Sour says HAIIIII! What a goof.
I love these pictures you took of these horses

Smrobs- Jager is absolutely my favorite too. I was beyond depressed when I didn't get any pictures of him before they loaded four up to take to the tournament! I met both Charlie and Jake, and they're definitely pretty close to how they portray themselves on TV XD

Our BO was just blown away by the fact that they're able to maintain all six of their horse's weights with hay and no grain. Haha

They left this morning but theres already rumor that they'll be back in October :P

I've personally met them and they are pretty close to how they portray themselves on TV. I train jousting horses with a close friend of mine who runs the close contact jousters for Washington State. I've know her and her horses for years and learned the training to do it. Jousting personally isn't my thing but training for it I'm more than happy to do!
I love the horses on the show, I have personal reserves on how they run their runs and start their runs but that's a completely different story and not for here. That's totally awesome you got to meet their gentle giants. Rumor has it that the group I work with will be running with them in the Colorado joust this year. Part of me is excited, the other part is terrified. I've seen first hand what can happen when things go wrong in full contact not to mention the show on TV of course. Scary scary but when everything goes right it's amazing to watch! I float both sides of the jousting fence. Choreographed performance and the real full contact joust. It's been a training hobby since I was 16 and started apprenticing for it. Fun fun.
I hope you get to play with their ponies more when they come back in October!

I love the show too.
I guess you would have to be crazy to do full contact jousting.
But yep, I am addicted to the show.
Neato that you got to see them all!
My favorite is the bad boy, Patrick.

Thats really neat Drafts4Ever!

I honestly don't know much at all about Jousting, and had never seen full contact jousting before. Heck, I didn't even know people still did it! Meeting them was definitely great, and I hope to actually go see them joust when they come back.
