    Wow! OK I know the woman is standing further from the camera than even the horse's far shoulder, but still... wow!

    That's a hunk. He looks like a ham, too.

    When the end-times come, this is the kind of horse I want. He can pull my plow AND I can ride him to into battle against the mutant hordes.

    He's massive. Knock 2 hands off that and we'll talk Eh I still liked Randy's conformation more -he had more neck, he was more compact.

    Paula
    He is total garbage! Quick! Hide him on my trailer (Petstorejunkie).

    Well, while he is too tall IMO he's a whole lot better specimen than Randy. I think he's quite a nice horse, where I didn't give Randy a moment's thought- Randy's back looked like a hammock compared to this guy...

    He's definitely fitter, no doubt. LOL Randy's back does look like a hammock compared to his . But for some reason I like Randy. I'm one of those suckers I guess

    That horse is a big boy in every way! I like him, but I'm not sure I'd like what it would cost to feed him.

    That was my second thought- after WOW! Even if he was free, I couldn't afford his monthly feed bill.

    I bet this is one ad that isn't lying about the height! He's huge! The seller also managed to get nicer quality pictures of him than a lot of CL people-- love the one of this bad boy in his paddock.

    Beautiful horse!

    Probably not terrible to feed...it's the damage to my pastures from those FEET that turns me off. What a horse!

    17.3 is perfect! Lucky for me it's a gelding, or I'd be on my way to get another horse

    My Percheron is 17.3 and she doesn't eat much more than my others... yeah, more hay, but that's all. And unless you have a mud problem, the big hooves don't do any worse damage than regular hooves.

    Gonna post that ad on my local FB Draft Owners group. Someone's gonna want him quick!

    Yeah, no matter what she was wearing! I think sturdy boots would only save some skin.

    Wow. Wowie wow. He's nice! Love his shoulder, hip and topline.

    And nice price too. Thank goodness I can't ride drafts and he's so far away, otherwise I'd be tempted!
