I bought a Morgan at an auction for my daughter when she was 10 years old. She liked to hang around the race track. A lot ofpeople hit her up for a race. She out run every horse. A lot of people tried to buy him. She liked to barrel race . He couldnt change leads at the barrels. I bought her a quarter horse. He could change leads but was not near as fast as the Morgan. She then gave the morgan back to me. I never been on a better horse. I kept him until he died of old age. If I ever get another horse it would be a Morgan

Appaloosas are a wonderful breed. Please be aware that Appys are prone to ERU (equine recurring uveitis) and have a tendency to start losing sight as they get older. I rescued my Appy when he started going blind. He is now 28, completely blind and doing very well. He is field boarded and has adjusted so well that many people would never know he can't see. I still ride him on short trail rides and he does great as long as he is with another horse. I love his rascally personality and calm demeanor. Don't know what I would do without him.

I recently acquired a 3 or 4 year old Percheron/Paint cross. I do not know exactly how old she is, she came from an auction. The man at the auction knew her mother was a gorgeous, very large black percheron mare, and her grandmother was a very large grey percheron mare and that her father was a paint and knew the lady who she was seized from (She was rescued from a dry lot) but we were forbidden from contacting the lady. My girl is between 14 and 15 hands right now, her ankles are very large in comparison to her feet and her rump is about a hand taller than her withers. How much taller do you think she might get? Keep in mind that she was malnourished which may have stunted her growth. All comments are greatly appreciated! I just want to find out as much as I can about this beautiful girl as I have started many many horses, but never a draft of any kind. Thank you!!

    From its parentage, Percherons range in height from 15 to 19 hands high while Paint horses generally stand less than 16 hands high. So it could be anywhere from 15 to 19 hands high, but my guess is that it will probably be closer to the 15ish height.

    From what I have learned she is as tall as she will get, but will get bulkier. Around 5 years of age percherons will mature.

    I, too, rescued a malnourished Percheron at the age of about 2. We have come a long way! He is almost 17 hands and beautiful! The correct diet and the room to run has made such a diference with him. I think Max has topped out and will not get any taller but he is thickening up quite well. The vet said his muscle mass would not be as thick as a well nourished foal would have been but he is very thick and has the beautiful thinck percheron neck so I think it all depends on how they are fed and the conditions they are rescued to. Good luck, this big boy of mine is the best horse I have ever owned and I have 26 on my farm!

    Keep in mind y'all, that draft horses can grow until they are 7 or 8 years old. The bigger ones tend to take a longer time to grow, which include other breeds (except thoroughbreds, which grow too fast for their joints. [I have a TB]). My brother's quarter horse was over four when he grew another hand, topping out at 16 hands. My husband's 2-year-old percheron is between 14 and 15 now, has the largest butt in the herd, and has started on another growth spurt. I had hoped he won't be over 16 hands when he's done (for my husband's sake; he just isn't that limber.); but, seeing as there are about 5 more years of growth...I guess my husband will have to start taking pilates.

    ive rescued several draft horses, went in depth to learn about them, from what ive learned there are old school which are larger when full grown at about 7or 8, that is about 17 to 18 hands, the way that they get them taller is if its a male and u guild them, my mare is 18.2 hands and my fresian/percheron cross stud is 16.2, I have learned over the yrs that the best way to feed is flaked premium alfalfa mixed with beet pulp and soaked in water to consistency of oatmeal, they all love it, it keeps coat beautiful and muscle along back, because u soak it u only give about a scoop per horse, and as long as u give hay everyday or grazing u don't have to feed everyday with them, better to have high fat lower protein diet, so depending on what size the stud was u could expect about 16 to 17 hands
