From Stacie H., horse handler & interpreter:

Chip and Mike are Percheron Draft Horse, they are 7 years. They are going to be an addition to the museum to help make deliveries to the different farms. The Percheron breed originated from France. They were originally bred for war use. The average weight of the breed is 1,900 to 2,600 pounds, and the average height of this breed 16.2 and 17.3 hands tall (one hand is four inches).  Make sure you come say hi!

Above is Chip and Mike checking out their new feeders.
 Look at the size compared to the barn!
 Catching up on my sun bathing...

We'll post some photos this year of them in action. There are many fields to plow!
