IGOR THE WORLD CHAMPION.

Once a horse wins that title... it becomes invaluable and is used as a stud.
Igor had just sired (inseminated) a few mares and was feeeeeeeeeling GOOD...

The Belgian horse, Belgian Heavy Horse, or Brabant is a horse breed that comes from the West-Brabantian region of Belgium. They are one of the strongest of the heavy breeds. The world's Largest Horse was a Belgian named Brooklyn Supreme, who weighed 3,200 pounds, and stood at 19.2 hands. On average the Brabant will grow to be slightly over 1 ton or 2,000 pounds. Colors normally are a blond with a brighter mane, or a sorrel/ chestnut coloring. In history their main use was to work farms. They are able to pull tremendous amounts of weight-up to over 4,500 pounds for a pair. They also played an important role in the first World War, where quite a few perished.
They are still used as work horses, wagon horses, but mostly as show horses.

Have a great day and thanx for the visit, M, (*_*)
