Russian Draft Horse. A breed developed in the Soviet Union by crossing warmbloods with heavy draft horses. A newer breed - as well as lighter and more energetic - than the Soviet Heavy Draft or the Vladimir Draft. A luxurious mane and tail and a thick, high crested neck is a hallmark.
American cream draft horse. The mechanization of farming in the mid-20th century led to a decrease in the breed's population and the registry became inactive for several decades. It was reactivated in 1982 and population numbers have slowly grown since then. However, population numbers are still considered critical by The Livestock Conservancy and the Equus Survival Trust.
