What is an Cream Draft?

The American Cream Draft Horse is exactly as the name describes.

First, it is truly American, with roots back to a mare in central Iowa around 1905 known as “Old Granny” who was the foundation mare of this breed.

Second, it is Cream in color, which is one of the three main physical characteristics manifested by the working of the “Champagne” gene. The other two traits which are obvious in an American Cream are the pink skin and the amber colored eyes.

Third, they are a draft animal, built as those originally used to farm in the breadbasket of this country before the age of mechanization.
