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.

Please Stay Tuned, I am experiencing Technical difficulties!

Due to computer issues, my blog reports will be delayed.  Jae has had to commission my computer into service to assist with repairing his (if that makes sense to any one out there, you're more of a geek then I!). 

As I have yet to master the art of blogging by phone, you may see some less then stellar blog entries over the next few days.  Thanks for all your patience.
