    Yes, his Sire is a purebred Friesian and his Dam is a purebred Thoroughbred.

    Oh goodness that is way to much crossing for my liking. I like half and halfs, that's it.

    If you want your TB/QH go for it, but stay away fromt he QH/TB/Arab/Paint/Clyde crap.

    Then this "friesien" is in fact NOT a friesien but a cross bred.

    Another breeder that twists the facts to sucker in unknowing people.

    No! No! No! No!
    Just don't do it! Please!

    I agree, nothing wrong with a cross, but throwing in 3,4 breeds and things get a little wonkey.

    For those of you who weren't born on a breeding farm, what took you down that path?
    I've bred racehorses...I was an owner and trainer as well...so that was just an obvious choice to produce my own stock.

    Then I bred Spanish Normans because of the love of Andis and Percherons, and the challenge of looking for the right individuals to recreate an extinct breed.

    Nope, pass, pass, pass.

    Now you've got 4 breeds of horses involved, all of them quite different from each other.

    That's like grabbing a bunch of mystery boxes out of your cupboard, putting them in a potm and HOPING it's edible.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking too, which is why I posed the question here, to get input from experienced breeders.

    When I go to some of the online classified sites, I see a lot of people selling horses that are only 1/4 this and 1/4 that, and asking fairly high prices too.

    Asking does NOT mean selling.
