Wayne, IL has been known since the early 19th Century and 20th Century as a hose breeding center and farming research area. It was especially known for the French Percheron breed (draft horse) which is similar to a Clysdale. Usually gray or black (more variations with today breeds) they were known as war horses or better known as horses used to pull the original stage coaches. Strong, hard worker, intelligent and easy trainers are some of the attributes given to them. They are used in English showing competitions in today's equestrian lifestyle more than draft horses.
