Yeah it is.
Any of a breed of gray or black draft horse originally used in France for drawing artillery and heavy coaches but now bred in other countries for general purposes.
Percheron horses grow to be somewhere between 15 and 19 hands high, with the average being between 16-3 and 17-3 hands. The average weight for a percheron is about 1,900 p…ounds, but they have been know to weigh up to 2,500 pounds.

they are usually too big and bulky to go really fast, they aren't built for it. They are very good though for riding and drawing carriages and sleighs. I have a Pe…rcheron pony that weighs in about 1300 pounds and loves to be ridden in heavy snow and pulling sleighs. A equine ATV is what we call this beautiful creature!
Yes, but if the miniature is a mare, then no, the developing foal would kill her if she gave birth.
Some of the distinctive features of the Percheron horses is its long neck and beautiful head, for such a big horse. They also have very powerful muscled legs, although they ar…e a bit short. They are predominatley dapple grey in colour.
Is the horse really white or is it a gray that has faded with age. Gray horses start out life black, bay, even chestnut, but all fade into grays. Several breeds come to mind a…nd one of them is the Percheron. Gray is the most common color for this breed. Another is the Shire. This breed comes in a wide variety of colors, gray being one of them. Any of the draft breeds that have gray in their bloodlines could look white. The Lippizan is another breed that is predominantly gray but they are smaller in build and height. There other possiblilties but these would probably be the most common.
Percherons generally stand between 16.2 and 17.3 hands (66 to 71 inches, 168 to 180 cm) high, although the breed has an outer range of 15 and 19 hands (60 to 76 inches, 152 to… 193 cm), whereas a Belgian horse can only stand up to 17 hands.
A normal sized Percheron can be from 16 to 18 hands high at the wither (shoulder). A hand is four inches.
On average, Percheron's are about 16.2hh - 17.3hh (168cm - 180cm), although any height from 15hh - 19hh (152cm - 193cm) is not uncommon. For more information on this breed, s…ee the related links.

Most Percherons carry the gray gene, which makes them turn gray, and then eventually white as they get older. Many other horses carry this gene as well. In the case of Percher…ons, they are generally born black, but can also be born chestnut or bay. Grays of other breeds can be born in colors like palomino, champagne, cremello, etc.

Somewhat, their numbers are not as high as they once were, but they are one of the more popular draft breeds.
