There’s no doubt that draft horses are amazing animals! One Belgian draft horse in particular, Petra, has taken the world by storm thanks to her sheer strength. A video of her released in 2014 has amassed over 10 MILLION views. You can’t help but to be in awe of what she is capable of!

Draft Horse Pull competitions are somewhat popular in other parts of the world, although we don’t see them as often in the US. It’s believed that the Belgian horse breed is a descendant of the famous medieval horses, so it comes as no surprise to see their brute strength.

Have you seen another famous Belgian draft, Brooklyn Supreme, from history? While his height of 19.2 hands was staggering enough, he weighed in at a massive 3,200 pounds!
