Did you know?
Belgian Draft Horses outnumber all other draft breeds combined in the United States.
History shows that Belgians are the most direct lineal descendants of the "Great Horse" of medieval times.
The Belgian came to the United States from the country of Belgium, located in Europe.
The fact that Belgians are by far the most numerous of all draft breeds in this country, plus the fact that they are much a one-color breed makes it easier to mate a horse when you need to and offer you a much bigger market when you wish to sell.
A Belgian foal will weight about 125 pounds when born and will nurse from its mother for about 5 months.
An adult Belgian can weigh over one ton. That is over 2,000 pounds!
Belgians can be 18 hands and over in height.
