An unusual breed! The Brabant draft horse is the foundation horse for the American Belgian. Until about 1940, the Brabant and the American Belgian were essentially the same horse. After World War II the Brabant was bred in Europe to be thicker bodied and more drafty, with heavy feathering on the legs, while in the United States the Belgian was bred to be taller, lighter bodied and clean legged.

Belgian Draft Horse. Het oerbeeld van de werkpaarden: het Belgisch trekpaard. Kijk naar de inwendige kracht, de elegantie en de persoonlijkheid van deze reus. See the inner force, the elegance and the personality of this giant.

Brabant, or Belgian Trekpaard, stallion Branco. Roans are quite common, as are solid colors. The Belgian Draft Horse of the US is more likely descended from the Flemish Horse and is flaxen chestnut in color. photo: Ton van der Weede.
