Draft horses are still commonly used today for farm work, carriage hauling, and transportation, despite the fact that the demand for powerful horse breeds has slowly decreased over the past few decades as a result of the advent of machines and cars. In this post, we examine the world's toughest horse breeds.
1. American Cream Draft Horse
The only American-developed draft horse breed that is still in existence is the American Cream Draft. They are an unique and relatively young breed that were created in Iowa in the early 1900s. As their name implies, they often have amber eyes, a calm demeanor, and a cream-colored skin tone.
2. Ardennes Horses
One of the oldest draft breeds still in existence, the Ardennes is a breed of powerful horses that originated in the Ardennes region of Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. They are large-framed, powerful horses with distinctively feathered, broad legs. They are renowned for being equally kind and amiable as they are powerful. The breed was once employed as a warhorse before becoming well-liked as an agricultural animal, prized for its toughness, endurance, and laid-back nature.
