HH:  Pretty pie-face with baby blues

Tack Room - I love the smell of a tack room:  Horse sweat, wool blankets, lots of leather, the smell of the earth and sunshine mixed in throughout all those other smells.  Each saddle belonging to a particular rider; each bridle belonging to a particular horse. It is intoxicating.

I demand to know what breed of neigh this is.

The Menorquin, a fairly recent horse breed, only recognized and registered as a breed in 1989, there are not many of this breed left .
Draft horses, overall, are lessening in number due to industrialization and no need to pull heavy wagons, carts, milk trucks, firetrucks, etc.  You can only make so many Budweiser commercials.

ARDENNAIS
Thought to descend from the prehistoric Solutré horse, the Ardennais is one of the most ancient horse breeds in Europe. The use of this breed dates back to Ancient Rome. First bred for the purposes of war, then agriculture, the Ardennais was considered one of the best breeds of draft horse. At the end of the XIXth century, the breed’s legendary characteristics as coach and draft horse slowly gave way to that of heavy draft horse. The Ardennais’ coat color is usually roan or bay, with dark and abundant feathering.
