Looking for my First Draft
Hi there :o)
After months of research, reading and vising horse shows I am now ready to buy my first draft :o) Percheron is my first choice, followed closely by clydesdale. I'm in Georgia. Problem is, I can't seem to find any located here! All the information and advice I have is to find one local, but every time I search the ones I find are in other states. Any advice as to how to go about finding one?
Look for breeders.
What part of GA are you in? I'm in Brunswick, not many horsey people around this area.

I want a Clydesdale sooo bad it's definitely on my to buy list when I get out on my own.
There's a percheron with all his equipment, cart, tack, and trained, for 4000 on craigslist in southern area of south carolina. Pretty dappled gray gelding.

Atlanta but will probably board in Conyers :D
I was on the east coat when I bought my Clydesdale, but I had to buy her in Missouri! lol
Now that I'm in California, she's just about the only one out here and her value sky rocketed.
I bought my girl blind sale, something I don't recommend at all. I knew it was right, though.... and boy, was it.
If drafts are few and far between in your state, you might have better luck looking out of state (and it might be a lot cheaper, too)
There's a Percheron breeder in Jasper, GA. Cielo Azure Very knowledgeable and a great person to get info from.
BackInTheSaddleAgain. Where in California are you? There are many in S. Cal. Even as far back as the '80's, I used to see people riding them in Griffith Park. My friend's hubby is a farrier. Before they moved north, just Clydes, Shires and Gypsies, pretty much kept him busy all the time.
How did her value skyrocket? The value of a horse doesn't change because you believe he/she is unusual in an area.
I don't mean that literally, and in fact I think it's absurd that people put a large price on an unregistered horse just because they aren't common in the area. That's why i looked out of state.
