I think ardennes horses are rare in the US I don't know about other countries, but there aren't too many here.
This is my ardennes draft horse, Remington.

I think the ardennes are rarer than people think, there's a lot of comois (sp) in the uk but not a huge amount of ardennes. I haven't really seen that many becoming avaible in france I think that's due to the demand in meat.

I would love an Ankel-Teke (sp?). I just love that shimmer they have.

I've only seen one other draft that I think is an ardennes here. But it could maybe be a roan belgian ( is that possible?) I dont know what a comois is though.
It's always funny seeing people ask what breed Remi is, and I tell them, and they're like "Huh, what in the world is that??"

We have a lot coming into the U.K right now. There's alot of people here who are "rescuing" these horses from the french meat market. I've mis-spelt it, its comtois. A friend of mine rehomes alot of them as they're got such lovely, easy temperments generally.

If there's madness in my method, does that mean there's method in my madness!!

I would love to own a Kiger Stallion or some other Spanish horse breed.

Go Colonial Spanish Horse they are the best!

I know, I shamelessly promote the breed every chance I get but hey we've got less than 3000 and some strains have less than 200 individuals, we have to get people interested in preservation!

I had a purebred curly =)(There are TONS of crossbreds out there.... He still had a 4 digit registration number. I believe a low numbered one to) . He's now packing a little girl around a cross-rail course. AMAZING horse. We did literally EVERYTHING we could together... I would love to own another one some day.
