The Flemish Horses are elegant workhorses with an average height of approximately 1.75m to 1.80m over the mares and the stallions. They are usually bay with white mane and soon reach a weight ranging from 850 to over 1000 kg. Furthermore, the horses have little or no feathering on the legs and they have smooth and elegant hallways. Despite their large stature and weight they have a golden character; the horses are docile and very patient.
The Shire horse has a powerful and muscular build, a dense rounded body, a broad back, strong loins, powerful hind-quarters and long legs with dense bones.. Shire horses can be black, bay (sometimes called "brown") or gray. The legs should have white stockings or socks (except on gray horses). The head should be long and lean with a Roman nose and widely-spaced eyes. The breed standard specifies that the eyes should be docile in expression. The neck should be long and lean, with an arch. This leads to a short, muscular back, with no pronounced dipping or roaching.
Belgian Draft Horse
The Brabant draft horse is the foundation horse for the American Belgian (also ‘Flemish Horse’). Until about 1940, the Brabant and the Flemish Horse were essentially the same horse. After World War II the Brabant was bred in Europe to be thicker bodied and more drafty, with heavy feathering on the legs, while in the United States the Flemish Horse was bred to be taller, lighter bodied and clean legged.
