Venus is a Percheron cross. She is or will be the main show horse. We bought Venus first and she looked so forlorn out in the pasture by herself that we went out and bought Ophelia. Anther Percheron cross. Now they are inseparable. In fact when Venus is carted off to horse training, Ophelia neighs and whines and runs back and forth along the fence and does not completely calm down until Venus returns. They are both very smart although, Ophelia seems to be the smarter. They are both very gentle, patient and tolerant of the dog. who seems to be a little less smart then the horses.
