    I don't know, but it looks a lot like Irish Draught, the old type, as seen in old pictures


    That's what I was wondering but I wasn't sure about the amount of feather on the hoofs.

    It's strange, and sad, that the Irish Draught was the horse of the peasant farmer in Ireland and now you can't touch one for under $15,000. I'd like to be able to work a small farm with them but I don't think I'd be able to afford it.

    Something happened in the posting so apologies if this comes out repeated.

    I have 2 questions about the Quiet Man.

    The first is does anyone know what breed of horse it is that Barry Fitzgerald is driving in the fil? The horse's name is Napoleon.

    The other quest is does anyone know what book Fr. Paul is reading from when he is visiting the death bed of the character played by Francis Ford?
