From the beginning of mankind to less than a century, impressive horses with a heavy silhouette, very large chamfer, huge hoofs, used to inhabit our countryside. They were our working companions, families’ wealth and pride. Then came the motorcars, tractors and tanks. Those heavy horses had no longer their place in the modern world. However, more and more often, while our contemporary world does not seem to require their services, these sturdy horses are coming back on the stage. Racehorses, in circuses, therapy companions, work horses in the forests, in the plough fields, through the vineyard or in the city streets... the draft horses are reborn from their ashes.
