Ardenner Horse is one of the oldest breeds, it's supposed to live in Ardennie area more than 2000 years ago. They've been powerful drafts with good quality and Ardenners have been used for breeding other heavy breeds. Now it has 2 types, lighter Postier and heavier Ardennes du Nord. Sometimes also Auxois is considered to be a type of Ardenner, not a breed of its own. Ardenners are usually bay or gray, but they can be also chestnuts. Black is not accepted.
