I wanna see everyones Clydes/ Clyde crosses
so I have been looking to purchase my first draft after owning QH's and appys , though have ridden many a draft. I recently tried a Belgian and a perch cross that just didn't work out and think I have found a good fit in a 15 yr old 17h Clydesdale mare , she rides and drives and is just a dream. So was really interested in seeing everyone's Clydes and even Clydesdale crosses.....

Well-mine is 23 yo, so he has been around a while.....from the days when they first started crossing Chydes with Tb's for field least in MD. He is out of Mountain Meadows Jason, who stood at Black Fox Farms Sporthorses back in the late 8o's, early 90's. THey are still around, and breed great crosses. He is currently retired as my primary riding horse, and is "working" as a therapy horse at a Therapeutic riding center. I have had him since he was 4, so he will come back and live his days out with me when he can no longer "work".

Here is "Frankie".

This is my Clydesdale Shiloh. She's 11 years old and 16.2hh. I've only owned her since May and she is the most gentle, patient horse I've ever met!! She's my first horse and first experience with horses and I couldn't have asked for a better mare!!

I have got to say that I cannot wait to break into the draft ownership club... there is a wonderful group here in Georgia ...and of all of the other horse owners I have met these draft owners are the most warm and welcoming ...and hope by next year will be apart of them and be able to show at the draft show in Perry, GA ..that is my goal!!!

and Yissy, Shiloh is GORGEOUS!!!

lbw0912 - Thank you! She's beautiful inside and out! I've only had her since May, but I'm crazy in love with her!!

Where I board there are two other Clydesdales and since they were so gentle and patient, I wasn't afraid at all to get a Clyde when I started looking.

Good luck in finding yours!!!

Thanks! She is a good horse!! Not super big at 16.3, but a nice horse to ride or drive.

I have aTWH and love her but if something ever happens to her I want a draft horse. I rue one recently and enjoyed it as much as my TWH.
