    Default Now Here's a Nicely Matched Set of Draft Horses

    Sure to get attention as they are going down the road!

    Not a huge fan of spotted horses but they sure are fancy.

    Looks like they were sparkling until they hit that grimy puddle.

    They are Norikers! I think they are awesome. They are not very tall for draft horses, but are definitely drafts.. not a draft x. Norikers come in many colors, including leopard (they call it Tiger) and I believe tobiano as well. (and Black, bay, chestnut, etc). http://www.pferdezucht-austria.at/ma...kat3=373&vid=1

    Definitely Norikers! I want a pair so badly, in leopard as well!

    My dream is to have a matched pair of appy sport horse for CDE. I love the spots!

    There is a group in the US whom are trying to restore the Sugarbush.. they may know of some. They are using approved outcrosses currently, since the breeding pool was quite small. Stonewall horses (app/draft x), fresian, percheron, belgian/brabants, and american creams have been approved.. to enter the foundation registry the horse must be over 51% draft currently, and be approved by photo/video by the BODs. F1 crosses of 50/50 draft heritage go to the Stonewall registry. No Tobianos, overos, sabinos, etc. are allowed.

    (I think they'd love to use Norikers as well.. but sadly not many/any in the us).
