Shire
The Shire horse is a breed of draught horse (BrE) or draft horse (AmE). The breed comes in many colours, including black, bay and grey. They are a tall breed, with mares standing 16 hands (64 inches, 163 cm) and over and stallions standing 17 hands (68 inches, 173 cm) and over. The breed has an enormous capacity for weight pulling, and Shires have held the world records for both largest overall horse and tallest horse at various times. Throughout its history, the breed has been popular for pulling brewery wagons that delivered ale to customers. This practice continues today, with the breed also being used for forestry, leisure and promotional pursuits.

    September 16, 2018 @ 3:40 PM Hero's wear fatigues - some wear saddles! Such a cool story about one soul saving another. Always so interesting to me how we assign valor and compassion to our own kind but don't always to animal-kind. Yet there are so many examples of animal intelligence and strength for us and one-another. This is just another great story about who they really are under all that gorgeous hair and fur!

    This is what drives us a Pedegru. Every story we curate and write, every invitation we make, every bit of Pet history we share, and every post we share with over 2 million people is designed to encourage people who don't own Pets to consider it. If everyone on the planet wanted to own one there would be enough to go around. Our goal is #ahomeforeverypet and everytime you contribute on Pedegru, whatever it might be, you help us spread the word!

    Joining is 'on us' and sharing is easy when you use the share bar on the left. We appreciate everything you are doing to help www.pedegru.com/Register
