I wanted to see if I could get a larger horse that would be gaited. Plus I love both conformations. I did get a beautiful horse but unfortunately she does not show signs of gaiting yet.

Wow, CloudsMystique you people are something else. I came here to share my happy success story and your purists believe there is no room on the planet for anything but "purebloods" Some of us like muts! They make the best pets.

Thank you for answering.

As you now know, this is the risk you take when breeding two very unlike breeds. You do not always get the characteristics that you wanted. It seems more often than not you get the characteristics you did not want.

You might not agree with what JDI posted but it is accurate. Good quality Friesian stallions do not breed outside the breed.


I think the point CloudsMystique is making in a very round about way is something about responsible breeding. Not sure exactly but that is my guess. Though I have to agree that the photo was very unnecessary.

I firmly believe if you are breeding to get something specific that is not guaranteed (like a certain color or a certain size) then it is best to simply buy what is already out there.

Well, duh. There's only a 25% chance a horse will end up gaited when it's half gaited and half non-gaited. And when the non-gaited horse is a Friesian, which isn't conformed to gait whatsoever, you have even less of a chance.

You can't just put any two horses you like together and end up with a perfect mix of the two. That's an idiotic premise for breeding.

Oh god, not this again. There is literally NO ROOM for all of the horses on the planet, whether purebred or not. Purebred has nothing to do with it. Purebred, registered horses (especially TBs) go to slaughter every day. Crossbred horses excel in sports every day. It has to do with a high-value horse vs. a low-value horse. You've created a horse that isn't good enough to call itself a MFT and isn't good enough to call itself a Friesian.

But you do not have a happy success story. You wanted a large horse that is gaited.

You did get a horse with cute markings.

And it really has nothing to do with not liking grade horses.


There are lots of good grade crosses that make great horses.

I bred this horse for myself, not the market, not for you. I'm absolutely thrilled at the results and it doesn't matter whether you or anyone else likes it. Why don't you stop thinking and talking like a horse dealer and leave keep your jaded opinions to yourself. I can breed anything I want to and just because you've never seen one before does not make it wrong. As long as I'm giving it a loving home you should just keep your mouth shut.

All right ya'll There is no use trying to fight with some one. Whats done is done. I think she is cute. Not a cross I would have thought about but who knows she may or may not be a great horse someday.

Your profile says she is a year old. Could you get updated pics for us? All babies look rediculus most of there young life because they are growing. Maybe she isnt that bad.

It seams like the OP is giving this horse a forever home so thee isnt any use with fighting.

Hmmm, I was being nice. I was just trying to explain what the outside world saw so you would understand the comments. I am not sure I deserve to be told off.
Shrug.

Glad you plan to keep it forever.


My theory on breeding, even when breeding outside of the breed, is to breed the best to the best.

But I do have a happy ending. I desired a horse with a gait but just because it doesn't does not mean I'm not happy with it. She is a great horse with a wonderful temperament. I know she's going to be great on the trail just like mom.

Then why the hell did you ask us OUR OPINIONS?

You disingenuously posted a picture of a foal without saying YOU were the breeder, and when people said 'ick', you got all butt hurt and are now proclaiming you don't care what we think.

Fine and dandy, but the next time you want to breed a cross like that, don't post pictures of it and ask people what they think.
