That grey Percheron...

By popular demand--here are some more pictures of that speedy grey Percheron from yesterday's barrel racing post.He was half of a dappled grey pair that competed in all the farm team classes at the Arapahoe County Fair last weekend.I took a lot of pictures of these two...
Here they are resting between classes.Close up shot of both the dapples and the harness breeching!You know how much I love performance pictures, so here's a quick rundown of his competition schedule. In addition to barrel racing, he was also entered in the single log skid,team log skid,
feed team race,farm implement class,
and obstacle course.Everyone was tired after the long show day. Wouldn't it be nice to have a big, comfy Percheron couch to nap on?
He's probably a bit too big for my living room, but a girl can dream, right?

  6. Aren't Drafts wonderful ? I live in horse country and a property near me has a 6 hitch team of belgian mares that are such sweet docile girls. I love photographing them at play in the pasture. I'll see about sending you some !

  7. LOL - I love that shot of the owner lounging on his "couch!" :-) I used to ride two Perchies in a lesson program. One was so tall I called her "The Fridge," since putting my saddle on was that high up. The other girl was shorter and a lot wider, so she was "The Couch." They were both really fun and different to ride hunters in, that's for sure. The tall one LOVED to jump but had a mind of her own. The wide one was a real sweetie but not quite so aerodynamic. I wouldn't trade the experience I got on those two for anything. Love drafts in general! (And I sure didn't know they "ran barrels"... that would be a riot to see in person)
