Italian heavy Draft

The Italian Heavy Draft is a distinctive breed with a friendly, calm nature and lively but docile temperament, although some individuals are notably highly strung. It is a smallish energetic, and quite fast draft horse, fairly hardy and easy to care for. The Italians have never had much inclination to breed massive, phlegmatic horses, so even when they produced their own heavy draft type, they went for a smallish animal with a lively action and bright temperament. Italian Heavy Draft horses stand about 16 hands high.
