Hey lovely followers! Could you please do me a huge favor? I entered The Woods Coffee photo contest and I was announced as one of the Top 10 Finalists!!! I am sooo happy right now! If you guys could vote for my photo and I’m one of the Top 2 winners of these 10, my photo will be displayed at the Barkley Woods Coffee which would be great exposure for me. Its called “Sundown at the Boardwalk.” Its the only sunset picture, and the 2 photos that get the most votes will win. Voting ends May 13th at 1pm PST. Thanks everyone, I really appreciate it! :D P.S. you can only vote while on a computer, the mobile app keeps crashing. Thanks again!!!
So there’s a new show about draft horse hitches on RFD TV. Its called Gentle Giants. Take a look some time and see what you think! The next episode is tonight at 7:30pm EST. This is the 4th episode of 10.
Me and one of our newest boys, Fritz :)
These are 2 of my Belgians, King & Roy :)
This is a photo of my Grandpa Weidkamp from the 1950s. He was the first in our family to start showing draft horses, with a hitch of Clydesdales. My brother & I make the 3rd generation to show draft horses, and I wouldn’t trade any of my experiences with draft horses for anything in the world. I’m truly at my happiest when I’m with my horses. Thank you, Grandpa, for passing down this wonderful way of life :)
Anybody have a story about draft horses they’d like to share? Submit it, and I’ll post them on the blog. I’d love to hear about people’s experiences with them! :D

Got my very first request!!! Thank you so much! Love all my followers and thanks for following this draft horse blog <3
Perfect blog is perfect. I have always wanted a clydesdale but I live in the city. One day when I'm older I will adopt one and love him or her forever. For now I will stare at your lovely blog :)
Thank you so much, hun! I’m really glad you love the blog, and I hope you get your horse some day :)
