SHIRE HORSES


The largest and strongest of the heavy horse breeds is the Shire.

Weighing approximately one ton, they are capable of pulling enormous loads and have a willing disposition.


These spectacular and elegant animals are the tallest of all horse breeds. Despite their large size, they are extremely

gentle and docile, and have excellent temperaments. Many of our horses have been bred and raised here at Ayrshire.

Currently, Ayrshire Farm manages 17 Shires, participating in draft horse shows and carriage driving shows.
