SR, makes a good point.

If you post in the photo section you will get cute, etc.

Here you did ask for opinions.


You posted this in the gaited breed section....and this foal is not gaited. Call me confused.

They are a muddy mess right now because of the weather but as soon as things dry up a little I'll get some good pics of her. She'll be a year old now April 9th. Alwaysbehind, sorry that was not meant for you.

Speed Racer, you are right and I apologize. I just lost it when CloudsMystique posted that picture which in "my" opinion was totally inappropriate.

Sorry if I offended you, but if you're so upset about it maybe you should do something to help instead of adding to the problem. You can't just ignore it.

Do you know how many good trail horses go to slaughter? That's not what we need to be breeding. And what if something happens to you? How can you ensure that your horse won't end up at an auction? The only protection you can give your horse is high value, and there just isn't any value in big Fox Trotters that don't foxtrot.

All -

It's time to slip in the old "conscientious ettiquette policy" reminder. This policy was created both for the general responses AND the OP. Please understand that when asking for someones thoughts on a forum, you are going to get them and they aren't going to all be sunshine and roses. However they are expected to be respectful, please do not attack the OP and vice versa.

That being said, I know that certain breeds are mixed in order to create an exceptional sport horse such as the arabs will breed with many breeds, and are accepted as half-bred registries, quarter horses will breed with TBs to get an appendix and so and so forth and then when you are breeding for a pony I think registration doesn't always matter.......

CloudsMystique, you just don't get it do you? I knew exactly what I was doing and am responsible for the outcome. Why do you insist it's wrong just because I wanted a crossbreed of my choosing for myself? That horse is well taken care of along with all my horses. I couldn't sell her even if I wanted to. Not everyone is as you are describing. You must have had some bad dealings, I don't know. Perhaps you might take you bitterness to the auction barns instead of directing it this way.

It's a cute baby. I'd also love to see what he/she looks like now. For the sake of seeing the cross. I've never seen it.

Okay... I'm getting bored now. 1) If you knew what you were doing you wouldn't have expected a gaited foal out of this cross. 2) Again, you can't predict the future. You could die tomorrow and your horses could be sent to auction. That is why they need to be protected. 3) I'm not bitter - I'm aware of a problem and I'm doing what I can to fix it. There are too many horses in this country and if all you wanted was a big, gaited trail horse you should have either purchased one from a responsible breeder or rescued/adopted one. Any way you want to look at it, you are adding to the problem and negating the efforts of people who are trying to help.

I have actualy come across what I think is the best cross ever. It was a national show horse X Baroque Friesian. He is built alot like a friesian but is a bay paint. He is extreamly versital and has lots of endurance. He could trot for hours.

I actualy could have the chance to own him some day (crosses fingers)

If I had pics I would share them but I don't.

aww dang. I'd love to see the cross. I spent some time under a big name light shod trainer of gaited horses in Texas and I have always oogled at Friesians.. not that they're my "breed", but they sure are pretty.

I would love to see the cross from someone here on a more personal level than chance a google effort that might turn up a grade someone "thinks" is that cross.
