Although Clydesdales tend to be stocky and extremely heavy, they can move very elegantly. They are famous for their gait: they lift their beautiful white legs very high and with great force. For this reason, they aren't just used as draught horses, but also for shows and street parades. Add to your collection of Schleich horses and animals. Fun Fact: Clydesdales have very big hoofs. Their horseshoes measure 5 cm from one end to the other.
