"The Shire horse is one of the biggest horse breeds in the world. With a height that can pass five and a half feet or 1.7 metres, they’re majestic, but in spite of their size, they’re known for their calm and friendly temperament. Even more characteristically, they’re known for their heavy feathering at the fetlock.
As well as being big, the Shire is also strong, and it’s said that it can pull up to five-and-a-half tonnes without a problem. This made the Shire horse a popular warhorse in the middle ages as it could carry a soldier wearing heavy armour. As knight’s armour began to disappear, the Shire became more and more widely used as a workhorse. Now those days are gone, the Shire horse is most popularly known as a parade and draught horse." - Star Stable Online
The Shire sports heavy feathering on its legs. This long hair covering the horses' canon and fetlock means that the Shire cannot wear leg wraps or open front boots in the game.
