PostSubject: Show us Your Draft Horses!   Tue Jun 03, 2014 5:17 pm

Sorry Andreas, the draft horses did win!  Laughing 


Draft horse, ( a.k.a. draught horses and heavy horses) are a type of horse with a heavier build, used for logging, harness, recreation, and showing. These horses are known for their very muscular build and tall height, ranging between 16-19 hands and weighing 1,400 to 2,000 pounds.

Some examples of draft breeds are as follows:
Ardennes
Auxois
Boulonnais
Brabant
Breton
Clydesdale
Comtois
Dole Gusbrandsdal
Dutch Heavy Draft
Freiberger
Irish Draft
Italian Heavy Draft
Jutland
Latvian Harness Horse
Lithuanian Heavy Draft
Muräkozi
Noriker
Normandy Cob
North Swedish Horse
Percheron
Poitevin
Rhineland Heavy Draft
Russian Heavy Draft
Schleswig Heavy Draft
Shire
Sokolsky
Soviet Heavy Draft
Suffolk Punch
Toric
Trait du Nord
Vladimir Heavy Draft


A common misconception is that all coldblooded horses are draft breeds. This is not true. All draft breeds are "coldblooded," but not all coldblooded horses are drafts Wink

At least in the United States, Drum Horses (a.k.a Gypsy Vanners, Vanners, Tinkers, Gypsy Tinkers) and Friesians are considered carriage breeds, not draft breeds. However, other countries consider these two breeds drafts as well as Fjord horses, Haflingers, and other breeds that we consider ponies in America. So, show us who you consider is a draft horse!  cheers (Also, that helps avoid confusion, hopefully Laughing )


Now for my drafters, I have a few Wink

Schleich Percherons

CollectA Clydesdale Stallion. His show name is "MSS Carola's Special Gift" Wink He does pretty well against the big guys, but I think his narrow face puts him back a bit.

Hagen-Renaker Clydesdale:

Now the Breyers, I will only say their release names since I only show a few of these.
Classic scale:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
On the left is "Flurry," a SR (special run) from last year, exclusive to the Breyer online store. This guy is glossy.
On the right is a RR grey shire on the same mold.

Flurry

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
RR

Traditional scale:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Carola should recognize this one Wink
Priefert's Hitch Kong, this mold is one that Breyer likes to change the gender of Rolling Eyes This model is a gelding. RR

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
SR Treasure Hunt model, "Fall"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Yes, I know his ear is curled Sad

This guy is the same mold as Fall,
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

But he's Classic scale!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The mold is traditional, but he's made of porcelain and porcelain shrinks.
He is Moritz, a limited run of 2,500.

Stablemates:
All are RRs

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Micro minis:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The one on the far left is special, Breyer has this promotion going on where in each box of mini whinnies, there is only one gold horse. I found out there is a special code you can use to figure out which one in the box is the gold one, and I thought for sure it was the right horse at the store where I found it, but the part of the code that would tell me for sure wasn't there!  affraid I decided to buy that package anyway, and bought a traditional set there too. The store owner gave me the mini whinny for free. Very Happy I opened the package, and it was the gold one! cheers There used to be a voucher in the package too, that gave you the chance to win a Breyerfest ticket, but that promotion is over, so I didn't get that voucher. Sad  Not that I would have won it anyway. Laughing

Babies! Very Happy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'll tell you, these micro minis are TINY! No, it should probably be written tiny Laughing

Wait, are we missing someone? scratch   Suspect 

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Ah, yes! We can't forget Princess!  Laughing 

Anyway, the micro minis are tiny Wink

Fantastic presentation and figures, Leeann! cheers
Here is my poor contribution about draft horses. My little collection of modern horses is not very "stable". :geek:After Jonas akhal-teke, I think I can only think in customs! Laughing

Schleich Irish setter shows size.

Papo Shire mare and Mojo Clydesdale.

These Britains Shires are the only vintage drafts but these I want to keep "forever" and I would love to add the Suffolk and also one of old composition drafts from Lineol or Hausser. Though, those are only dreams at the moment. Very Happy
