Percheron horses, massive in size, were used to clear rock and plow these mountains. My mother told the story of one of their horses, a dapple grey named Charlie, who was so large that she and her four siblings could all ride at one time.
Percheron Horse - Majestic as all get-out. This horse has great strong shoulders and a super strong neck, and he shows off his finest features proudly while dwarfing his handlers. Oh how I would love to have a ride in his saddle. He must have a huge stride! Just beautiful to behold!
