The Belgian horse is a much-loved gentle giant. This large heavily muscled horse most likely descended from the heavy prehistoric horses and was indispensable as a workhorse in the Middle Ages when this horse was known as the Flanders Horse, now it is known as the Brabant.

During one of our recent treks through Flanders, we happened to pass the farm, it has a beautiful long drive with at the end a majestic House, surrounded by very beautiful old stables and barns, I saw activity and gathering all our courage, decided to go in, my heart sank when I saw the sign ‘Veterinary surgeon’ at the entrance, shrugged and drove on.

I wish you all a superb day and thanx for the visit, M, (*_*)
