yep..this is what they said:

"-My husband is a farrier, Mac is absolutley excellent with his feet & yes Mac does trailer ( as a weanling he was trailed from Manitoba to Armstrong) he walks right in.

- Right now we are just finishing developing our farm, so we have no pasture, therefore I make sure all our Shires have a lot of hay. Mac gets 6 big flakes of hay per day ( 2 morning, afternoon & evening) I feed him a coffee can of complete pellets, Dr. Reeds supplements, ground flax, & 4 cups of beet pulp twice a day.

-Mac gets along with everyone (he is not a dominent horse) he has been in with our mini. The other 2 Shires he is in with now really herd him around. If you want my personal opinion...I do not think you will need any proffesional help with him, your aunt sounds fantastic, he is a horse you could grow with. You could use him for absolutley anything you want, he has a lot of class. You do not need to be an aggresive rider to own a Shire, they are absolutley to die for...once you ride & own a Shire trust me, you will never want another breed! The best thing for you to do if you are serious about Mac, is to come & meet him in person. You will find all the ? you asked answered. The only reason we are offering him for sale @ this time is we have another stallion coming from Indiana & I need to make room . Once the spring comes & my husband ads onto our barn if Mac has not sold he will be staying."

He knows when you're happy He knows when you're comfortable He knows when you're confident And he always knows when you have carrots.

They sound really good I would take a look! He sounds like a big teddy bear!!

somewhere behind the rider you've become the hours of practice you've put in & the coaches that have pushed you is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. ride for her.

Ooooo, now I'm REALLY curious. Do you have any idea where he came from in Manitoba? The place Shay-la bought Eve from actually breeds high quality Shires that end up shipped out to places like Alberta and BC. Wonder if he came from the same place??

No actually, I don't think they even have a name, it was a ramshackle sort of place but with 5000 acres they ran their herd on. I don't think they did much showing, just more interested in breeding good quality animals that seemed to garner a lot of interest.

If they say the place was in Fraserwood/Poplarfield, then it's the place he came from
