drafts did not used to be tall. I think Anhauser Busch started the taller is better thing with his Clydes, outdoing the legendary tall Shires.
But the average drafts of other breeds were not all that tall.

She is just the best to ride without a saddle and a great trail horse. However people are terrified of her without even meeting her, I don't get it. She is big and black but super willing and a smooth ride. I wish I was done with school, my BF is a wannabe drafter. Our neighbor is always willing to break in a team, so I guess if it was a year later I would be the crazy that would want two.
