Percheron 35 years

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

When Percheron Acquisitions was established in 2007, the founding parties spent a lot of time stressing the importance of choosing the right name.  Trent Oglesby, CEO of Percheron LLC, gathered a group of employees together to discuss name ideas and Percheron was suggested.   

Trent said, “After doing a little research on Percheron horses, I found that Percherons were utilized in building the infrastructure of early America which worked well with our service offerings. I also liked the fact that these horses were known for their strength, dependability and hard work; characteristics that fit with the company we were creating.  It’s different and a great conversation starter. Even if people don’t know what a Percheron is, they usually never forget the name.”

WHAT IS A PERCHERON?

The Percheron is a large draft horse that is very popular in the United States and Canada. It is known for its even temperament and good manners. They are a dependable animal that is willing to work. Percherons range in height from 15 to 19 hands high (60-76”), most are between 16-2 (66”) and 17-3 (71”) hands high. They can weigh up to 2600 pounds with the average around 1900.

The Percheron has a very pleasing disposition: proud, alert, intelligent and willing worker.  The Percheron is very versatile. They are readily adapted to varying climates and conditions, have the strength to pull heavy loads and the graceful style to pull a fine carriage. Percherons can be ridden and some have been known to make fine jumpers. 

Two Percheron horses pulling together cannot pull twice as much as one. They can actually pull three times as much. The two horses that can each pull 8,000 pounds alone can pull 24,000 pounds working together. 

It’s that kind of teamwork that has served as a foundation for Percheron for the last 35 years and will continue to be a driving force in providing our clients the best service possible.
