Usually gray or black in color, Percherons are well-muscled, and known for their intelligence and willingness to work. Although their exact origins are unknown, the ancestors of the breed were present in the valley by the 17th century. They were originally bred for use as war horses. Over time, they began to be used for pulling stage coaches and later for agriculture and hauling heavy goods. Collect A horses are created by Deborah McDermott, a sculptor living in Southern California. She grew up as a typical horse-crazy little girl who loved horse models and drawing horses. She never dreamed that someday her equine sculptures would be used as the basis of a new model horse collection created by Collect A! As a sculptor, she observes the anatomy, movement and expressions of horses as well as their unique qualities that make each horse an individual.
