Hi ! This time, I decided you suggest a rare breed Horse for your Sims: this is a Poitevin Draught !

History :
It is thanks to King Henry IV as the Poitevin could see the day, the son of wind, water and marsh. It carries in its fibers the influence of terroir its birthplace where the Earth is a heavy marine clay, rich in minerals, hard summer and waterlogged in winter. This breed is the result of several centuries of a tough selection from the population of horses bred in the free state in the marshes of the West Atlantic and horses (probably Flemish and Frisian ancestors of) accompanying Dutch engineers came highlight the Marais Poitevin in 1599. Mares bred with native horses from the North and had taken root and gave birth to the race called "trait poitevin".
More substantial, in the middle of the nineteenth century Breton blood was introduced into the race.
This breed, long recognized only for the quality of its product mules, was on the verge of extinction. Fortunately, some enthusiastic breeders have kept mares and stallions
by pure sentimentalism. Joined by a small number of neo-rurals and assisted by the Haras National and the interregional Marais Poitevin Park , they resumed farming. The trough of the wave was reached at the end of the 80's (87 births in 2007 against 23 in 1988).

it is a calm and gentle horse elegant, long and cylindrical body with a large frame. It has a heavy head and imposing but quite expressive. thick and long ears. the neck is short. powerful shoulders and straight. the hindquarters is strong. members are strong with well-developed plumes. the bristles are provided.
A wide variety of dresses exist in this race: Dun, grulla, black, black pangare, roan, chestnut, dun cream, dapple gray ....
