Question,
When was you last at a County Fair?
I went last night, love fairs, carinavels and festivals..
I seen a 5 legged goat and a horse named Sampson.
Sampson is the worlds 3rd largest horse on record, he is a 9 yr old Belgain.
I've never seen a horse this size and I've been around horses my whole life. He eats 150pds of food a day and drinks 25 gallons of water a day.
I was talking with the owner and he said he bought him from an Amish farm as a 4 yr old and he was huge then. So I ask was he given growth hormones and the guy said no. Said Cornell University did a study on him and he is kind of a freak of nature and only one in a million horses are born like Sampson.
He was impressive.....
Hi Cowgirl.
I haven't been to a county fair since my son was young.
What a horse! 150 pounds of food a day- that's eating like a horse.
I used to like to look at the animals at the county fair, that was the best part.

Hi thumper.
I had a good day hunting, but am paying for it now with cramps.
Tomorrow, I'll probably figure it was worth it.

I've brought a pic-a-nic basket full of chicken salad sandwiches on toasted multi-grain bread. Who's tending bar around here now?
Hope you don't mind me horsin' around. The Belgian Beast ... I've seen 'em in Amish fields, at county fairs, and State Fair. Yep, they go big! Random gene expression is part of that, of course.
Got curious, so did the haulin' for OC.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belgian_horse
The Belgian Heavy Draft horse stands between 16.2 and 17 hands (66 and 68 inches, 168 and 173 cm).[2] On average the Belgian grows to weigh slightly over 900 kilograms (2,000 pounds). Most American Belgians are a light chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail. The head is relatively small and well-shaped.[2] American Belgians in North American are not as large as the European Brabant but is of a similar build.[2]
Currently, the world's tallest Belgian Draft is Radar, a gelding foaled in 1998 in Iowa. He stands at 19.3½ hands (2.02 metres) at the withers, and weighs over 2,400 pounds (1,100 kg).[3]
>>>>> The world's largest horse was a Belgian Draft named Brooklyn Supreme, who weighed 3,200 lb (1,500 kg) and stood at 19.2 hands (1.98 m).[4][5]
Historically, it is possible the Belgian may have had ancestors who were destriers in the Middle Ages, although there is no independent evidence to support this claim. The foundation stock for the Belgian was originally known as the Brabant. Other names for essentially the same breed include the Cheval de trait Belge, Brabançon, and Belgisch Trekpaard.[9] Until the 1940s, the Belgian and the Brabant were essentially the same breed. Following World War II, the Brabant in Europe was selectively bred to be thicker bodied and heavier, while in the United States the Belgian was bred to be somewhat taller and lighter bodied.[9] The main use was as a farm horse. Closely related breeds include the Trait du Nord and Nederlands Trekpaard.[9]
In 1887, the American Association of Importers and Breeders of Belgian Draft Horses was founded in Wabash, Indiana to register and keep track of all Belgian Draft Horses.[10] Today, the Belgian is the most numerous breed of draft horse in the United States.[11]
Importation of Belgians to the USA ended in bulk after the beginning of the Second World War with Erwin F. Dygert transporting the last Belgians out of Europe as the war was beginning.[dubious – discuss][12]
Flemish is Dutch Belgium in historical contexts:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clydesdale_horse
The breed was developed from Flemish stallions imported to Scotland and crossed with local mares. The first recorded use of the name "Clydesdale" for the breed was in 1826, and by 1830 a system of hiring stallions had begun that resulted in the spread of Clydesdale horses throughout Scotland and into northern England.
Wow. 3200 pounds!

Thank you for the picnic, it was lovely and the info.

The horse I seen was 2800 pds, massive animal. My neighbor raises Belgains so I'm aware of how big they are. He tried to get me to raise them but my farrier said if I do he's not coming back to my farm because the Belgains are to hard to trim..lol..

Good morning.
I like how you don't hold a grudge and are strong- don't get spooked by strange things.
I'm walkin' like a cowboy this morning. Got a small buck and two does yesterday. On the resident pay hunt (Lanai residents only) we can go for $80/day and get one male and two females, deer or mouflon. Got the little one before the sun had come over the Maui mountain and the next two across a canyon, OK, valley, well, big ravine? lol-not really It was very hot and humid, steep rocky sides. I got them down to the bottom and boned them, carried them back up the other side and about a mile back to the truck! Didn't take enough water and got very dehydrated. But, I'm not complaining, did that sound like complaining? Pretty good for an old fart that's not in exactly 'marathon runner' shape! In a few years, I probably should take somebody with me, was a little worried about breaking my leg or having a heat stroke or something.
Now, I need two cups of coffee and one to go please.

I don't hold a grudge, it's pointless to do so. I don't know what happen but if what was said is true then you would think he would post here but because he stopped it makes me wonder. He was a friend, he still is. He posts to us from work.

About your hunting, you better be careful and yes take someone with you.
You forgot water? What was you thinking??
Walking like a cowboy? Now how does a cowboy walk?:P

Here's your coffee sweetheart.

Enjoy your day!:)

My uncle from Eastern Oregon walked like a cowboy, he was a horseman.
Like this-



(I'm surprised you didn't know that.)

Oh, I had water, but only took three of those Costco 16.9 Fl oz bottles- that's not very much!

Hi OCG and Other Rockers.

Tell you what!... it's too damn muggy for a picnic today. And storm is nigh, too. Boomers around and abound.

I knew you would be aware. And in my neck of the woods, there's a farm (not Amish) kind of nearby that has 2 or 3 of them, some cattle, AND a buffalo herd!

Oh indeed. Shoeing and trimming those big boys and girls would wear ya to the bone!

My Fishy friend, sounds like you had quite the time hunting! Some deer jerky would be amazing right now!

They make special stands for the horse to put their feet on instead of the putting the feet between their knees likw with a normal size horse.

I still can't get over the size of that animal. And he's the 3rd largest on record. Now I have to see the first largest.

My neighbor raises and sells his all over the US, He said he gets alot of buyers from New York..
