I want a percheron

Percheron stallion and half breeds

That would be fun, though I have ZERO experience with drafts!

If I ever get moved out to the farm I want to get a good team of Percherons as well. My grandpa always had a couple of teams around when I was growning up and he used to drive them all winter.

Good luck. Drafts are usually nice to handle although can be intimidating do to their size but once you get used to that they are fun to have around.

Awe I feel for you. My husband does not understand my passion for horses
But he has a horse when he was a teenager

My dad liked Belgians and I like Clydesdales

I want a halflinger, but I always ask myself - why? I am not sure, I just want one. Why do you want a percheron? My cousin bred blond percherons. I loved their temperment, all of his were amazingly calm and "considerate"...even the young ones! If they weren't so huge...I would take two!!

Hmmm, why...that's a good question. I suppose I always lingered in my horse books (like The Ultimate Horse Book) in the draft pages. They just seems so big and cuddley yet powerful. Even regal. Can't say I would pick a Percheron over a Clydesdale in a side by side comparison though. Actually I like the Suffolk Punch. They are just so...boxy...in the books.

Well, you like "huge" I guess. I mean, do you want to ride it, do pull contests, a wagon team, or ??? If you don't already have a draft - that means additional gear, that's always fun and expensive. I think I want a halflinger purely b/c of looks....not really a good reason, so I don't have one, yet. :)

I don't know what their breeding was, and I am guessing its just a color - but that was the color he bred for - just like some people prefer sorrel QH's...might be from an okie leo, might be a colonel freckles line, but they want sorrel. Don't know.

Ps., He used them in teams, and liked them to match.
