Draft Horses is the eleventh book in the The Animal Kids’ Books Series, featuring amazing pictures and animal facts everyone should know.


Draft Horses is the eleventh in a series of books exploring the animal kingdom using both words and amazing pictures of animals.

The world of animals

Animals come in all shapes and sizes and include mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians. And, whether we are talking about wild animals or their more familiar domestic counterparts, we are looking at a fascinating world that you can spend a lifetime exploring, and only scratch the surface.

Draft Horses – Amazing Pictures and Animal Facts Everyone Should Know looks at some of the best known breeds of draft horses (also known as draught horses, dray horses or heavy work horses) from around the world today.

There are a very large number of horse breeds and in this book, which is the third of three books in this series looking at horses, we cover draft horses – large horses primarily used originally as heavy work horses and used today, not simply as working horses, but also as show horses and for advertising. Previous books cover Light Horses and Ponies. This book includes details of the following ponies:

  • Belgian Draft Horse
  • Clydesdale Draft Horse
  • Gypsy Vanner Horses
  • Haflinger Draft Horse
  • Percheron Draft Horse
  • Shire Horse
  • Suffolk Punch

After a lifetime spent studying the animal kingdom at first hand as she has traveled the globe, Ann Lawrence brings the world of these wonderful horses to life with some of the most amazing pictures you will find anywhere.
