I've enjoyed reading this thread. Have to agree with the "tank" description. I've only ridden one draft, lovely Percheron mare, so I am very limited in my knowledge. However, she was wonderful in the walk and canter, but oh my, that trot could loosen my back fillings!
Gotta agree with kevinshorses, would love to have that mare (though I'm sure she's deceased now) but I don't have the same "equipment" to trade!LOL!
