... you can now watch the 2013 Budweiser commercial (ie, the one with the big Clydesdales) without sitting through the Super Bowl. It's a cute one, complete with a week-old foal, bittersweet rock classic "Landslide," and two handsome leads.
Which makes me want to write a review of a book starring a draft horse. I can only think of one, off-hand, Jessie Haas's Uncle Daney's Way, which is very good. Any other suggestions? There must be other draft horse heroes out there! I rode a Belgian a few years ago (my height seems to inspire the "You must want a giant horse" in stable owners) and once I stopped staring down at the very, very distant ground, it was wonderful. Cantering up a gentle hill, my big blonde farm horse breasting through tall grass and flowers, I lived out simultaneous fantasies of being a knight, a princess, and any one of several dozen English country-house drama heroines. For that atypically perfect experience, I salute the draft horse.
I came across a very entertaining article online for aspiring fantasy writers who feel the need to put their knight, elf or fairy princess on horseback.
