    Perhaps but his house was like a horse racing museum which is a bit odd if you want to get away from it all. Well he seemed to find a place for himself at least.

    He sounds like my Schipperke! I'd love to have a corgi or another schip but I know they are not for everyone. I mean there is a reason you don't see Schips (or Corgis) dominating the obedience...

    Thanks! Can anyone tell me how much draft horses weigh? Everything is in lbs. I don't know what a (probably smallish/average) Belgian weighs. then on the drafter sites they don't have weights...

    I'd be an 18 year old Hereford cow. OK, horse: probably an 18 year old draft cross of average height, extra weight, lots of creakiness and old injuries, red, pasture pet and free to a good home.
