We have two full Clydesdales (Rose and Belle) and one older 1/2 Clydesdale, 1/2 Thoroughbred mix (Ruby).
The full Clydes are from Monarch Clydesdales in Baltic, Ohio. We use them mainly to drive -- pull a cart or a sleigh. Rose likes to run and play. Belle is fond of standing still and eating. Coming Soon! The story of Belle and the Eggs.
Ruby is a dressage horse from Valley Watch Farm in Johnstown, OH. Ruby is Sally's riding horse.
Clydesdales are draft horses -- generally larger horses used for work such as pulling. Drafts tend to be big, kind, gentle giants.
There are few draft horse clubs near us:
The Western NY Draft Horse and Pony Club
Eastern Regional Draft Horse Association (Upstate NY Branch)
There is also a national breeders organization:
Clydesdale Breeders of the U.S.A.
We are not planning on breeding at this time.
