Boulonnais Description
  The Boulonnais Horse is a hard working and energetic horse. It is also extremely gentle and elegant. Prestige and high endurance keep the Boulonnais Horse in very high esteem. It has a short, broad head, which is carried elegantly. They have a fairly wide and prominent forehead and bright eyes. Their ears are small and erect and faily mobile. The nostrils are well-opened and the neck is arched and thick. Both the mane and its high set tail are faily short, but thick. Its shoulders and hindquarters are extremely muscular. The rib cage is well-rounded, the back is straight, and the chest is very broad. Prominent and strong projections are apparent in the forearms and thighs and they also have large, flat joints and thick cannons. There is some feathering on their legs, but for the most part, there is very little hair on their legs. Their coat color is generally gray, but can also be seen in roan, bay and chestnut.
