20 months and broken to drive:
Ironically also pictured with a little girl, both looking like the babies they are...
19 months old and 'she can run'
Broken in as a yearling. Yes a YEARLING:
Done everything at 3 years old:
pulled a living wagon from Durham to Kent, 21 days.
The first picture (below) is him pulling across Tower Bridge, did 340 miles in 21 days.
Well I guess these people are selling these young horses, so they don't have to deal with future possible temper tantrums and/or crippling arthritis in legs and spine caused by doing too much too soon.
I just wish people could take a step back and give their horses time. It provides for a much longer, more productive working life span, and a much happier horse mentally. Sadly on dragon driving at least, it seems taking it slow will never be the popular approach.
