Known as gentle giants, draft horses have been indispensable to farms and businesses throughout history. Strong and dependable, the Clydesdale was used to work a farm’s ground and for heavy hauling. Standing 18-19hh, Clydesdales are known for their iconic white blazed faces, and silky heavy feathering on all four legs.
Alba is a beautiful bay Clydesdale mare, and she gets her name from the White Oak tree (Quercus alba). Oak is the traditional gift for an 80th anniversary, as it symbolizes the time and energy devoted to seeing something through to its full potential. The White Oak is the state tree of Illinois.
