A Note about Sugarbush Draft Horses
I see it over and over again, and no matter how many times it's said, it's still wrong. "Sugarbush Drafts are just an Appaloosa Draft Cross". Uh.... no. The Sugarbush Draft Horse was a breed created many years ago in Ohio. While the initial cross was made using Percherons to Appaloosas, in the many generations following, the breed has been solidified into a consistent type. Saying these horses are "just" a draft cross makes as much sense as saying that AQHA horses are "just" a Thoroughbred cross, American Cream Drafts are "just" a dilute Belgian, or that Morgans are "just" a grade.

Website Update, and a new listing
As you can see she is broke to drive. This picture is a few years old, and she was heavily pregnant in it. I am still getting more information on her, but Everett has decided to sell her. I will be posting more pictures and information about her soon, but I wanted to get her out there to the public.
Essie is located in Ohio, on Everett's farm. For someone wanting the best of both worlds, a using horse, and a breeding horse, this mare is your ticket. I have to admit here that I am interested in her as well... but because this breed is so rare, I want to make sure others have a chance at buying these horses. I figure, if she sells before I get my money together, then it was meant to be! Ok, and having more Sugarbush owners is always a good thing. There just aren't enough horses out there to satisfy all of our urges.
I also updated pictures for O and Sweetie. More updates are coming while I'm waiting out the rain. You can always check out my webpage by clicking the Iron Ridge Sport Horses link at the top of the blog.
