    breed tn walker to islandic?

    I haven't made a decision yet, but we are considering breeding for a personal baby (to keep). My TW mare (picture attached) to an Icelandic. What are your opinions on this cross breed? Scarlett is a little hot and we thought the calm nature of the Icelandic might make for a wonderful calm, smart, nice gaited baby. Thanks for any comments...

    I have never heard of a resulting baby from this cross...I wouldnt want it, honestly. You wouldnt know what kind of gaits the foal would have. Why are you so interested in this cross? Some Icelandics can be hot too; My advice: breed to a TWH stud with good conformation that overlooks the flaws of your mare, has a show record, good temperment, ect.

    Actually I have only been around 1 of this cross when my friend was training her. He is also friends with the lady that owns breeds Icelandics. She had breed Walkers in the past and changed over to icelandics. Apparently one of her Icelandic stallions got out and breed her TW mare.
    My friend also sugested a TWH stud for my mare.
    What would you suggest so far as conformation in a TWH for this mare?

    Thank you so much

    I would definitely stick to a TWH stud if it were me.

    TWH's and Iclandic's have such different breed standards/conformation characteristics, I just don't see the desire or marketability in the cross...but hey, that's just me and in the end, it's your horse, and your money. -shrug- Good luck in whatever you decide to do!

    ETA: if you'd like help in picking out the right stud for your mare, I'd suggest getting some good conformation shots of her - standing square on flat ground, no tack, etc. It would make it a lot easier for us so we can see her flaws/weaknesses and look for studs that could [or are known to] help off-set them.

    Although I do get what you're going for I don't think that these breeds' conformation would complement each other.
    So my advice would also be to try to find a level headed TWH stallion :)

    I would agree that you need conformation shots of her in order to see what kind of stud would compliment her the most. How old is she? Any health issues? Has she been bred before? Show record? Ect, ect are all the questions that you should be asking yourself before you breed her.
