Do half drafts get feathered feet?
I was wondering if half drafts get the furry feet. Charlie is half clydes/TB. Here are some pics.
Cash the daddy
Front with his ringlets
I had to throw his cute nose in there as well. LOL
IME, sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. It doesn't look like your guy is going to have the heavy feathering like a true draft but he won't have slick legs like a TB either. He'll have some feather but it won't be flashy.
For example, I have 2 half drafts on my property. One is only slightly more feathered than your average quarter horse, the other has feathers almost as thick as his draft daddy.
I love the daddy
and I like Charlie he could have feathers
I know Rocko gets feathers so you have to clip him. :) He's half paint, half unknown draft. (:
Do you think he will be as dark as daddy or lighter like his mom? Im sure I will know as soon as his fuss is all gone, but his dad is really dark and Whiskey had a more reddish coat. I know Charlie is dark now, but curious to she what he will look like when he sheds out.
This is mom Whiskey Mama
I suspect he'll stay darker. I don't know that he'll stay the color of his sire, but he is definitely a brown, not a bay like his momma so he'll always be darker than her.
I think he will be dark like his dad
The sire has extreemly light feathering for a clyde, more like a Percheron or Belgian. You won't have anymore than you already have.
Tanya looking at the back ground in your pics i see some good country side to ride. Good looking country you live in. Do you have lots of trails around there?
