Belgian draft horses

                                Photo taken by Alexandra Winand
We received a few wonderful Belgian related photos by Alexandra Winand and are so delighted that she is willing to share them on this blog as well as on This is Belgium's facebook group. I particularly like her Belgian draft horses.
If you want to find out more about this breed, originally from the Brabant region of Belgium, check out

Alexandra has more to show, such as pictures from a school in Mons, another true beauty but closed since 1990... 
Stay tuned.
