Breeding Pedigree Shire/Clydesdale Horses

Recommended Posts

In the last week the pedigree Shire Mares and the Clydesdale Stallion have now produced 2 colt foals. I have worked Clydesdales in the woods more than 20 years to earn an income and fund a mortgage and it has been a life long ambition to breed solid working horses. It's still snowing here in the mountains but these animals have been drinking milk within 60 mins and now running around in the shed!!

 

I will post some pictures when work out how to send from mobile to PC. The last time I was this tired was when the children were born. :001_rolleyes:

 

We drove 3000KLMS from Derbyshire via Europe to arrive here in summertime. It was worth standing in the middle of the M25 (close to Stanstead Airport Junction) at 3pm on a Friday afternoon to protect the horsebox when a front tyre blew out at 50mph and almost crashed the truck. :001_huh:

 

Off for some sleep whilst Andrea checks the current foal and I have the night shift. :thumbdown:

Us humans take hours to be born and months to walk but these horses are up and about even a little outside fun into the snow.

 

Last night fine. Mare now snoozing beside the foal. I take some pictures when up later on.

 

These colts are waist high to a large human (head much taller) so will be big. 3YRS mare weighs 800KG and will be 1200KG when finished growing several years time.

 

Thanks on the interest.

So here are the pictures of the mares and foals.

 

Colts are called Hurricane and Tornado as both born in bad weather conditions and move so fast!! :thumbup:

 

Mares were confused as look like twins.
