The     Shire     Horse     is     also     called "Gentle   Giant".   With   it   the   behaviour of   the   horse   is   meant. The   heights   at withers   is   with   mares   163   cm   and with    stallions    /    geldings    168    cm. Country    of    origin    is    Great    Britain, where   it   only      as   an   knight's   horse (from   11.   Cent.)   and   later   than   as acarriage   horse   (from   18.   Cent.)   was bred.     At     that     time     the     beer consumption   in   old   England   required a   lot   of   supplies.   As   a   draught   horse it   serves   even   today   in   the   tourism branch   and   finds   as   a   logging   horse in   woods   also   an   employment.   With it    especially    strong    build    and    the long   hangings   in   the   legs   they   cut during various shows a fine figure. The   name   Shire   is   derived   from   the name    Shire    (county),    because    this race   was   bred   first   in   Yorkshire   and Staffordshire.
One of the first walking with Tori
My   gentle   giantess   very   likes cuddling,    but    also    playfully. This     sometimes     brings     on walking   ways   also   problems, if it hops high-spirited.
Typical snoot of  Anouk
Anouk   "grumbles",   then   makes them    this    typical,    amusing pose.
