This is a modern Andalusian but compare it with the original illustrations of warhorses and you'll see the similarities. Medieval destriers were NOT draught horses. You only need to look at paintings and illuminations for it to be patently obviously (riding my own hobby-horse here!). THIS is the modern descendant of the destrier still looking something like, and NOT a Clydesdale FGS.
