This variety of draft-horses is somewhat larger and not so active as are the Percherons. Their appearance leads to the conclusion that they have more of the blood of the heavy draft or Flemish, and less of the Oriental blood, than the Percheron, which they somewhat resemble. Though closely related to the Percheron, they are coarser in make-up, slower of movement and less desirable for American uses. The breed takes its name from the city of Boulogne. The colors are variable. Their most appropriate place is for heavy tandem draft-teams in the streets of Paris. They are not prized as highly in the United States as are most of the other draft-breeds.
