Auxois




The Auxois is a more recent version of the draught horses that originated in the Middle Ages in north-east Burgundy. Ardennais, Boulonnais and Percheron blood have been added to produce this heavier type draught horse. The breed, like it's near relatives, has the hardiness, strength, stamina and amiable temperament making it an excellent workhorse. It stands at between 15.2h.h. and 16.h.h. and in appearance closely resembles the Ardennais and Trait du Nord, though selective breeding has produced the predominance of bay or red roan horses.
