A very impressive, all black Percheron eight horse hitch, done four-abreast, completing an initial turn pulling a large wagon on runners. One of the interesting highlights was that these eight comprise of mixed teams of four from two different owners and yet their footwork is almost in unison!! Taken Canada Day July 1/09 at the Bar U Ranch near Longview, Alberta.
The Bar U has a long history of raising purebred Percherons.
These amazing horses are bred for pulling heavy loads and have huge feet with hairy fetlocks, strong necks and shoulders and incredibly strong haunches.
