Artist's Description

The Belgian, as the name implies, is native to the country of Belgium. Belgium lies in the very center of that area of Western Europe which gave rise to great black horses known as Flemish horses and were referred to as the “great horses” by medieval writers. They are the horses that carried armored knights into battle. Such horses were known to exist in that part of Europe in the time of Caesar. They provided the genetic material from which nearly all the modern draft breeds were fashioned.

This beautiful, huge horse is in a pasture beside a gravel road near our home here in Southeast Missouri.

Due to the backlighting of the horse I have adjusted the brightness and contrast to bring his features out of shadow.
