    Some draft horses for Jonathan

    went to the NY state fair yesterday, and we spent awhile in the coliseum watching the draft horse finals:

    this kept me out of the shop for the day... which was fine by me.

    Glad you liked them, wish I'd had my big camera yesterday, those were on the wife's baby nikon. The fair was a lot of fun, I actually went twice this year (rare).

    Have had a couple of people ask what kinds are in a specific picture. I'll give my best guess and reasons why.

    Picture #1 - Black Clydesdale's, all the "feathering" around the tops of their hooves (actually the pastern bone and around the coronet band commonly called the hoof head). Awwww, I see Clydes now on the wagon so guess #1 correct!!!

    Picture #2 - More clydesdales, different color options.

    Picture #3 - John Deere (Green color!!)

    Picture #4 - Belgians. Common sorrel color, popular with farmers due to lack of feathering (less mess/mud/manure collection opportunity).

    Picture #5 - Percherons. Another farm favorite for the feathering reason also. Belgians tend to have a more laid back attitude than a Percheron. Kind of like a car then there is a sports car.

    Picture #6 - Four up of black clydes.

    Ned, wonderful photos. Should sell them! Thanks for sharing.
