Percherons
 
I know there are probably other perchie topics but I'm interested to see how many percheron owners we have on here! I've ridden QH's all my life and I own two and this summer I went over to our friend's and rode their big Perch and fell in love. By this fall, I ended up with two of my own :) So tell me how you got into the breed and post pictures!
Here is mike, the first perch I met and rode

Aw, she's such a cutie! Is she a cross?

equiniphile 12-07-2010 08:46 PM

I'm not sure what she is. I know she's part Percheron, not sure if she's half warmblood or half tb or what. She's only around 17hh

That's still pretty good size, I love her dapples!

I sold him about a year ago, but I used to own a beautiful Percheron Gelding named Bandit. Loved him dearly, and still miss him sometimes. :)

I used to have two but unfortunately, the mare got bitten by a snake a couple of years ago and ended up dying. So now I just have 1.

I had a lovely Percheron mare named Delta. She was my first horse. I just sold her to my mom a few weeks ago, and they've been taking lessons together. I actually went to an orientation to start volunteering at the local horse rescue June 2009, and my mom and I saw Delta there. We fell in love!

And equiniphile, as far as Lenox "only" being 17hh - my girl is a full, registered Percheron and stands at 16hh. That is, mind you, about as short as they get. 17hh certainly isn't too short to be full Perch, though!

I'm so jealous of you all!!!

They are long 2yr olds and pretty short compared to most drafts. Their maternal line was only around 16hh. This summer they finally grew taller than me.
