Scotland's own heavy horse, bred originally in Lanarkshire, developed more recently than other British heavy breeds during the second half of the 18th C. Inported Flemish stallions were used on local mares and Shire blood was also used. The first stud book was published in 1878. It's docile nature, strength and soundness led to it being widely exported and there are very active breed societies in Australia and North America.
