Its amazing the things that you can discover while wondering through countless pages of information about horses. The Belgian horse for example has a distinct and rather interesting history. The “great horse” as it was once called by the medieval knights in battle is one of the truest forms of the first nickname for the Belgian Horse. This breed not only got its nick name from the medieval times but it is a direct horse descendant from that era as well. In the late 19th century Belgium was sending this breed through exports all over the Europe and the world. By 1903 the lofty Belgian horse had made it’s way to the World Fair in St. Louis Missouri. This is a long ways away from the Belgian farms they were originally bred for but it has brought them into the hearts of many today. The beauty of this breed is not all they have as attributes, it has been documented that the Belgian Horse can actually pull a load up to 8,000 lbs as well as work a full 8 to 10 hour day. The breed is kind and easy to handle as well as able to handle a work load that puts most other horses to shame. The look of the Belgian coat is most often a Bay color with a lighter mane and tail. They average 16 to 18 hands high and most often the Sorrel color coat is the sought after in color.
