Weston Agricultural College recently acquired two young Percheron draught horses. The draft horses are part of a project consisting of three partners, namely Dr Peter Dommett of Waterford Farm in Underberg, Plaas Publishing, publishers of Veeplaas and Stock Farm magazines and of course Weston, the recipients of the horses.

The main purpose of the draft project is to teach learners the use of draft animals on the farm. Weston already has draught oxen and donkeys, so the Percherons will complete the project.
