Draft Horse Digest Podcast – Ep 26- Quantifying Conformation

In Episode 26 we discuss correct draft horse confirmation and go deeper into quantifying some of the more ambiguous terms that are often heard in draft horse discussions.  We talk about:

  • What is a “big” or “good” foot
  • What is a “big” draft horse
  • Some of the positives we look for when selecting horses
  • The importance of the rear assembly
  • Three equal parts and balance
  • Plumb lines
