Do you know what breed of horse it is in that picture, or what breeds are best?

 

My missus has about 48 (i think) at the mo, and is always changing and buying/ selling. I would be up for a tool like that.

Is it a nice lifestyle?

 

It's not romantic, winter is mud and rain, summer is flies and rain, but it is a way of life, and it's hard to make a living

They are Ardennes, pound for pound the best logging horses you can get!
