Answer . The Clydesdale is a work horse known for their height and their strength. Some people will ride them as a saddle horse even though they are a work horse.
They are 18 hands high (over six feet) with feathered hooves. They are the second largest horse in the world. They are well over 2,000 pounds. Coloring of the Clydesdale horse breed varies from different shades of bay, brown, chestnut and black, predominantly with one solid color, often with a white… underbelly as well as a white feather.

With good care from a loving owner the Clydesdale can live well into his 30s or beyond.
Most of the horses range in size from 16.2 to 18 hands and weigh between 1600 and 1800 lbs. Some of the mature stallions and geldings are taller and will weigh up to 2200 lbs. With the changes in the size and type of horse wanted, the Clydesdale emphasis on underpinning has remained paramount.. The… most common color in the Clydesdale breed is bay. Black, brown, and chestnut are also seen with roans (solid body color with white hairs throughout the coat) in all of the colors. The preferred markings are four white socks to the knees and hocks, and a well-defined blaze or bald face. The show ring does not discriminate on color with light roans and horses with dark legs being considered equally with horses of the more solid colors and traditional markings. The increased popularity of big hitches has directed more attention to color in recent years and the stabilization of color patterns.. Generally gentle and placid, good with children and other animals. Willing to please ( Full Answer )

You can cross breed just about any breed of horses.. I would always recommend checking with a vet just to make sure.. It also depends on which breed is going to be the stallion. For instance, although Gypsy Vanners and Clydesdales are both considered draft horses, Clydesdales can be HUGE (17 hands… and above) whereas most Gypsies are 14 and 15 hands. If the stallion is the Clydesdale, that could create a pretty big foal for a Gypsy mare to carry.. Always double check with a vet first. ( Full Answer )
A Clydesdale is the same as AA normal horse. It's just stronger and has hair covering it's hooves. They eat grass,grains like horse food sold at farm stores. Thay need to be able to run around and have alot of exercise!Ãthats all!Ã

No, the Morgan is a fine breed, the clyddesdale is a heavy draft breed. .
Often they are bronken in to pull carriges or for heavy work as they are big, strong builds. Another common use is for riding school horses for rides by different people.
16 - 17 hh and about up to 950 kg, (2000 pounds, not far off from 1 tonne)
Clydesdale's are mostly used for heavy work and pulling. In the UK they are only really used on working farm museums, and agricultural shows for display. I'm afraid farmers tend to use tractor power, rather than horses.
They eat as much as a normal horse would. They are no different than any other horse. They are just a type of horse.
Same as any other horse. Breed makes no difference in a horse's life cycle. Just the sex/gender.
I think they run at about 30-55 miles per hour I know a quarter horse can run up to 40 or 55 miles an hour and I have a blue roan that runs that fast and a fox trotter that's stubborn but can run up to 25-30 miles per hour I learned this from my teacher Babette and I'm only 14
Can a Clydesdale horse be a regular horse? It is a horse, hon. Do you mean can it be trained to be ridden? Yes, it can. I have been training for many years and have also ridden on a statewide equestrian drill team in which one girl rode a Clydesdale. Because it is a draft horse, and therefore much l…arger than a "regular" horse, you'll have to be even more conscious of the safety procedures with horses to keep you and your four legged friend happy and safe. Happy trails! ( Full Answer )
Nope. Not at all. If you're trying to buy one you just have to know where to look.
If you're asking that question you can't afford one. The cheapest part of owning a horse is the initial purchase price. Once you have paid between $1500 and $5000 for the animal you will have a yearly vet bill for vaccines of around $200, every six weeks the horse will need his hooves trimmed at bet…ween $30 and $50 or $45 to $85 for horse shoes. Add to this $3-$5 a bale for hay and he will go through about 5 a week and $9-$23 a bag for horse feed, multiply that by 5 to 8 a month depending on how ways it is to keep weight on your horse, then if you have to pay a boarding facility to keep your horse for you depend on paying another $100- $350 a month. Then there's bedding, tack, supplements, clothing humans need to care for a horse like boots, and helmets, and clothes for cold weather, and buckets and brushes and other equipment for grooming and feeding and caring for your horse and your equipment. If you really feel like you want a horse I recommend taking riding lessons first, it seems expensive but compared with the cost and timerequired to own a horse it's a lot more economical and allows you a chance to make sure that horse ownership really is right for you.

A racing thoroughbred can reach speeds of 40 miles per hour (approx. 65 km/h) over a short distance. Clydesdales are built for strength, certainly not speed, so I doubt a Clydesdale would be able to gallop anything faster than 30 km/h.

I don't know much about the " Belgium Horse " if you mean the Brabant/Belgian Draught then I don't know too much about them but they are very similar to the Clydesdale reaching the same height as them and are used for the same types of work, they are actually still used in agriculture.
