I can remember going to the State Fair years and years ago and seeing the Draft Horses. I was in love! They are the most beautiful animal. SO very large but yet SO very gentle.

Hi Jen, Thanks for sharing these and the Flicker photos with us. They're super! Looks like some folks were in short sleeves. Was that indoor arena heated?

As long as I can remember draft horses have been my favorite. They are truly a gentle giant.

Draft horses are fantastic. I remember taking a 4H field trip to a Shire ranch and seeing their prize stud - an enormous black beauty named Beowulf. I watched him in awe. Very impressive. Or maybe I just have a thing for feathers? :)

Great pictures Jen. We have a few farmers in the area still showing their draft horses and they are something to behold. Thanks for sharing!
