Belgian horses (also known as Brabant horses) can be some of the largest and heaviest draft horses sometimes standing over 20 hands tall and weighing more than 3,000 pounds.

Boone is a great sized 16.3” hand, powerful gentle giant, absolutely handsome, and he knows it! He is green broke to ride and has been used as a logging horse and driveway drag puller, is super fun to take out on the trail, and has gorgeous movement in the arena.

He is sometimes a bit scared if you are cleaning in his ears but great for sheath, and he stands for trimming hooves every 6 weeks without stocks and doesn’t mind shoeing and/or trail boots. He is available only due to us not having a driving pair for him currently, he drives best in a pair we think, and we are spending more time training him when the other horses need to be sleigh pulling on the farm.

We will continue to train him and if sold as is, we are asking 5K and once fulling carting will want more late summer if we still own him. Is anti County Roads 3 and 36; and State Highway 65 (MN 65) are three of the main routes in the community.
