The Clydesdale is a draft breed which originates from the Clyde valley in Lanarkshire, Scotland. Standing 16.2-17 hands with a long neck, sloping shoulder, short back, and well muscled thighs and quarters it was ideally suited to heavy farm work or road work. Known for the long hair on its lower legs, striking white facial and leg markings, and calm disposition, the Clyde is a favourite at heavy horse shows, often in teams pulling large commercial class wagons and carriages.
