      Sugarbush Draft Horse.. an almost extinct breed. I never knew they existed but they are two of my favorite things - draft horses and Appaloosa color. Awesome.

      This is a Sugarbush draft horse, with appaloosa leopard markings. It is a smaller draft horse than others. Mr. Sugarbush spent his life perfecting and saving these horses. There is one registered stallion and 11 others, that are left. That was in 2008.

      Drafts with Dots 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.

    Mother Nature can throw some curveballs, and when it comes to putting color onto a horse, she outdid herself with the markings she put on an filly born last year in Montana. With several generations of straight Appaloosa breeding behind her, this filly--registered with the Appaloosa Horse Club as Uniquely Destined--is one the likes of which few folks have ever seen.

    ARDENNAIS Thought to descend from the prehistoric Solutré horse, the Ardennais is one of the most ancient horse breeds in Europe. The use of this breed dates back to Ancient Rome. First bred for the purposes of war, then agriculture, the Ardennais was considered one of the best breeds of draft horse.

    This amazing but natural coat belongs to Eclyse the zorse. Her father is a zebra, while her mother is a horse. And she’s walking proof of how a child inherits genes from both parents.

    #3. The Knabstrupper - Knabstrupper horses were bred in Denmark as far back as 1671 when they were called "The Tiger Horses." In 1750, this royal breeding line came to an end.

    "El Caballo Tigre," from Spain, and the oriental Heavenly Horses once used to hunt the Siberian Tiger. Fortunately before going extinct, the exotic spotting genes of those early breeds, plus many of their original characteristics, began arriving in the USA in a mixture of related breeds, some 300 years ago. Today's Tiger Horse is a larger, longer living version than the Heavenly Horses from which they descend
