Suffolk Gelding, the breed originates from the country of Suffolk in England. It has been exported to Russia and North and South America, Australia, Africa, and Europe but is on the rare breed list in the UK and the USA. The Suffolk is one of the oldest draft breeds in existence with records dating back to 1880. Isolated from their neighbors, the farmers of Suffolk independently developed breeds of livestock to fit their special way of life. To plow the heavy clay soil they needed an agricultural horse with power, but also stamina, health, longevity, and docility. So these fine husbandmen produced the Suffolk horse and bred him for the attributes that fulfilled their needs.
