Draft Horses

Meet Our Draft Horse Teams

As part of our continuing commitment to showcase traditional agricultural methods and techniques, Billings Farm currently keeps two teams of draft horses on site. These amazing animals, organized into two teams and one single, are able to pull sleighs, wagons, and farm equipment, demonstrating the strength and training that would have made them a farmer’s most valued assets.

Max and Banner

 Max and Banner are Belgian geldings and the largest draft horses at Billings Farm, weighing around 2000 pounds each and standing at about 18 hands high (6 feet at the withers). New to Vermont, they’re enjoying their new home and love meeting visitors and spending time grazing in their paddock.

Ruby & Rosie

Ruby & Rosie are 16-year-old Sorrel Belgian Mares who came to Billings Farm from Wisconsin. They are half-sisters who love working together as a team, and enjoy pulling wagons and sleighs through the farm fields. Both stand at around 16.3 hands.
