About Boulonnais HorsesAbout Boulonnais Horses



Boulonnais horses come from France. They are legendaryrncreatures that were brought from France by Julius Caesar during his preparationrnto invade Britain. They were once known for roaming many lands such as Calais,rnBelgium, Eterpigny, and along the English Channel in the United Kingdom. Mostrnof the heavier draft breeds were bred in the Northwestern areas of France.rnrn rnrn 

rnrnThey are often referred to as the Thoroughbred of the draftrnbreeds. This was as a result of their elegance that they received from thernbloodlines of some Arab and Iberian horses. While they are recognized as being derivedrnfrom the seventeenth century, some feel there were in fact two various stylesrnof the breed. One was noted as the heavier draft version and the other is thernsmaller one called the horse of the tide (they were sometimes utilized torntransport fish from the areas of Boulogne to Paris). They went on to strugglernwith extinction as the people of their towns began using motorways and cars tornget around town. It is unknown at this point in time if a true full bredrnBoulonnais horse still exists in France, or anywhere else in the world for thatrnmatter.rnrn
