Black Tie Affair

Of all the heavy horses the Percheron is probably the most lively and dynamic breed, qualities which are further enhanced by a particularly friendly disposition. This breed hails from the Le Perche region in France. This particular pair is "Hoffa" and "Cleat" from the Willow Springs Ranch in Monument, Colorado. Surprisingly, Hoffa, on the left, strikes the classic pose; he is usually the  clown of the group.
