Clydesdale Description
  The Clydesdale is an extremely large, powerful draft horse that has been used for many years as a work horse. It is now becoming more popular as a family horse due to its gentle temperament. Their life span is 20 to 25 years, although some have been known to live longer. The Clydesdale is a handsome animal with a thick neck and their head is considered delicate for a draft horse. Often it has a white blaze on the head of the Clydesdale. Its legs often have feathering and should have white "socks" on its feet. They are usually seen with a bay colored coat, although other colors, such as black, brown and chestnut can also be seen.
