      Yes he is very tall but not as heavy as the big work horses. He is an impressive fellow.

      Thank you Nicole for this comment. As long at those big hooves don’t step on you it is ok!

  4. The recent PBS special on the history and story of the horse is highly recommended.

      1. Informative info, lovely animals, and beautiful riding. The human-horse bound was on display in the program.

  5. Beautiful boy! I wish my big guy had feet like that, unfortunately he has crummy Thoroughbred feet.

      Kahn is an Oldenberg Fresian cross. His feet are very good and a nice proportion for his size.

    Beautiful photo – a spent a few seconds pondering what it must be like to have hooves instead of hands/feet there!

      Not having opposable thumbs would be my biggest readjustment. Horses used to have 3 toes but have evolved to just one hard hoof.

      The lady who owns and rides him is quite petite. She uses a mounting block to get on and to get off. She does a great job riding him . She was given this horse when he was a weakling and he is now 14. She always says she would not have chosen such a big horse but he needed a home and she gave him a home.

        And how lucky he was that she chose him!
