Percheron or Clydesdale?
Theres an debate going on at the rescue, one of the owners is claiming that Peggy is a Clydesdale, while the other is claiming shes a Percheron. Lol we cant find her papers at the moment to tell for sure. Shes 30 years old this year by the way. A beautiful old lady if you ask me! Does anyone know which she is?
:lol: Shows how much I know, I'd call her a Belgian just because of her color!
Whatever her breed she is a grand old lady for sure
I would have said belgian as well!
Looks like a Belgian. She appears wonderful for her age!
Agreed with Golden_Horse - she doesn't look like either breed. If I HAD to pick one, she's far closer to a Percheron then a Clydesdale just based on her slimmer build and the lack of feathering on her legs. Her head is also closer to a Percheron as she lacks the extreme roman nose of the Clydesdale breed. However, if I had MY guess, she looks to be a cross between a Belgian and Percheron.
Dont think shes a clydesdale :/ wild guess but maybe shes a suffolk punch?

Lol now I have no idea! I guess it really doesn't matter. She's the sweetest old horse in the world. If shes out in the pasture laying down and you sit my her, she'll lay her head in your lap and go to sleep. And to think her old owners were selling her for her meat.
I see belgian.
Not a Clydesdale and doesnt really look like a Perch to me either. I'd say Belgian like the others.
I also say Belgian. She doesn't have the leggyness or the feathering for a clyde and purebred percherons normally only come in gray and black (sorrel is possible but pretty darn rare) so even a cross is unlikely with her color. Sorrel would be possible if one of her grandparents was a perch and the other 3 were something else, but her being a perch is unlikely.
I am 100% sure she's a belgian. And a very nice example of one as well, especially for her age.
