Clydesdale in show harness
I have to say, this makes me feel a little irked on behalf of the horses that built America.
This is a Percheron hitched with a Belgian
a common sight on an Amish farm.
Percheron and Belgian horses are the faithful steeds that plowed our lands during the 17 and 1800s. Even today, very few Clydesdale horses are used for farming in America. I know there are some but I personally have never seen a Clydesdale on an Amish farm. Yet, every time I tell someone in town, that I own draft horses, they always ask, "Clydesdales?" When I tell them I have Percheron horses, most have never heard of them.
Belgian horses are usually Chestnut or Sorrel in color. Ranging from what is called a blond to those that are almost dark red.
I hope my Clydesdale owning friends are not offended by what I am saying here, Clydesdale horses are doing all of us draft horse people a favor, by keeping heavy horses in the media.
