Use and characteristics of the Percheron
The Percheron, like many other draught horse breeds, has increased in size over time and today the breed generally stands around 16 hands 1 inch high (65 inches/165 cm). Permitted colours are grey or black. When researching the breed in order to buy a Percheron, it will be clear that there is some variation in breed standards between different countries. Percherons are noted for their courage, strength and soundness, as well as a certain spiritedness that makes them engage very actively in their work. Experienced breeders who sell a Percheron will produce animals with compact conformation and strong legs with flat, dense bone, as well as very healthy feet. Although they have increased in size, they have maintained a low centre of gravity which is ideal for agricultural work. Today, Percherons can be found working in all areas of agriculture and horticulture, including viniculture, tree nurseries and forestry.
