Old Time Wagon and Draft Farm's Mission
"To educate our youth about the history of our ancestors,
how they lived, worked, traveled, and sustained life."
When you host your next event here at Old Time Wagon and Draft Farm in Holly Springs, you will learn about our Percheron draft horses on site. Percheron Draft Horses were originally bred in France and according to history they are descended from the "Great Horse" ridden by knights in armour but the present day Percheron traces its history to the La Perche region of France where they were developed as work or "draught" animals to do farm work and haul heavy loads of freight.
Today Percherons are still popular as work horses, but they are also being used more and more for all types of driving. They are very popular as "hitch" horses in shows and exhibitions, pulling wagons, usually in teams of four or six and also becoming popular for pleasure driving.
Percheron Horses are very versatile and sensible horses. They are easy to train, gentle, alert and willing and they are very hard workers.
The conformation and disposition of the Percheron Horse combine to create a modern type of draft horse that is suited to many uses and is gaining greatly in popularity in recent years. Although our draft horses are very large and extremely powerful, their gentle nature makes them a hit with adults and children alike.
