Massive Percheron stallion eagerly anticipates meeting his partner

The Percheron, a sturdy draft horse breed, originated in the French Perche region. It is believed to have descended from the Flemish “big horse” of the Middle Ages, which was then crossbred with Arabian horses to create a coach-horse type. Later, draft-type bloodlines were introduced in the 19th century to produce horses suitable for heavy farm work. While a handful of Percherons were imported earlier, it wasn’t until 1851 that they gained popularity as draft animals in the United States.

Percherons were widely used in American agriculture before mechanization revolutionized the industry, and they had a greater impact than any other draft breed. These horses typically weigh between 1,900 and 2,100 pounds and stand 16 to 17 hands tall, which is equivalent to 64 to 68 inches or 163 to 173 cm. They possess a highly muscular body, a lengthy neck, and a relatively small, well-defined head.

Percherons commonly have black or gray coloring. Despite their large size, they are quick and agile, with a friendly disposition. The American Percheron Horse Association and its predecessor organizations were established in 1902. The Percheron breed stands out for its size, appearance, and temperament.
