Shires are one of the largest and tallest horse breeds and they are know for their gentle nature. They weight about 850-1000kg and it is a British breed of draft horse. This breed was used for various works such as pulling weight, forestry, and riding but now these horses aren’t used to do these things anymore.
They are now mainly raised to be used for commercials or just because people love them and are a great attraction for them. What you are going to watch in this video is a gorgeous shire stallion called Danny throwing a gentle temper tantrum.
When you see him galloping towards the camera you think that he is going to jump over the fence but smart Danny knows what it is and he stops right at the fence.
He knows the fence is an electric one and what he does comes all natural to him as he begins jumping and throwing that gentle temper tantrum that we all love.
It is difficult to imagine a shire jumping and throwing a temper tantrum but you don’t believe it until you see it. Watch the video!
