The Shire


DOL-A-0568

How many of you thought of the "Lord of the Rings" when you read the title? Anyhow, this Shire is a breed of draught horse. It is also the tallest (21.2 hands) of all draught horses.

Frodo would have a hard time climbing up onto one of these guys. I particularly like the vivid blue highlights on their hides.

Beautiful horses and unique colouring! I guess I thought of St. Andrews, NB as it's known as the Shiretown of Charlotte Co. :)
