The department that takes care of the horses is called Circle D Corral.
The horses are all geldings, from the Belgian, Lipizzan or Percheron breeds.
The largest of the breeds at Circle D is the Percheron, averaging about one ton, and the largest of these draft horses is Duke, who weighs over 2400 pounds.
The trolleys are drawn by the Belgians and Percherons. A horse with a Nameplate entry in the above table works with the trolleys for four hours a day, four days each week.
Why do the nameplates not match the actual horse names? I have no idea.
The Mulan parade features four out of five of the Percherons - Jack, Jigs, Oscar, Sam and Tommy - who rotate and therefore get some nights off.
Cinderella's carriage, used in the Christmas parade and for weddings, is pulled by a pair of Lipizzans.
