"The purebred Irish Draft is a sturdy, big-boned horse and should have a commanding presence. Although people often think of enormous Clydesdales when they hear the term "draft,” there are not many similarities between the horses pulling the Budweiser wagon and the smaller and more refined—though strong-boned—Irish Draught. This horse is the original multi-tasker: he could plow the fields during the week, go out hunting on Saturday, then pull the family’s wagon to church on Sunday."

This horse is presented as a heavier draft-type of the Irish Draft as opposed to the leaner, more sport type.
