He's a gorgeous guy! And he looks like a really good saddle horse in the making. Grab him! Be very careful pasturing him with saddle horses though. We always kept ours seperate, mostly because they saddle horses felt the need to pick fights and the drafts, well, always won. If you shoe him he can't play with them. They obviously eat way more too. I just picked up a 7month old draft cross myself and have worked with adult percherons, belgians and clydes for a while, they are awesome, super gentle and calmer than saddle horses in general. Starting them young also helps you make sure to keep their mouth soft so they will listen.
