Clydesdale gelding born 2002; and came to Hidden Acres Farm to be part of the Tally-Ho herd in 2010. Sarge and Kashe were the first of our mini-herd of Clydesdale horses that our horse-trainer and friend Ed, in Chetwynd, BC, readied for work in Victoria. We knew Sarge was special the day we met him. He is very sweet natured, extremely intelligent, and a stunning example of the Clydesdale breed. Now retired, Sarge always performed his job with ease and was trusted to take good care of new carriage drivers. Sarge’s lovely disposition earned him fans from around the world who would come to visit him each year and feed him carrots.
At home, Sarge is a king-pin. He’s always been at the top of the pecking order, but rules with a level of kindness. He adores his humans and always makes us feel so loved when we are near him. He likes to be clean, and we must ensure we upkeep his standards even though he’s no longer in the public eye. LOL.
The Clydesdale horse is listed on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust list as a species vulnerable to extinction. In 2010 the worldwide population was estimated to be 5,000.
