clydesdale or Shire mixed with????????

Looked at a paint horse yesterday about 16 hands, cute horse, one blue eye. Just wondering about this crossed breed and I guess crossed breeds in general and as to its possible temperment. It was either Shire or clydesdale with a regular horse breed, forgot what breed she said but to me I can't tell it had or has any clydes or shire.

Well obviously, one of the parents was coloured right? To know more, you'd have to ask questions of the seller and go from there. The horse could be a mix of anything.

is there a rule of thumb on mixed bred horses that they may go crazy or sometimes or may just out of the blue do things that maybe purebreds won't?

All horses, whether purebred or not, spend much of their lives, thinking up things to do which make their owners crazy.

If you truly wish to know how a foal might turn out, then get to know the sire and dam well, watch carefully that he is trained properly, exposed to as much as possible and hope for the best. Just like humans, some will exhibit funny or even annoying traits, regardless of how they are raised. In an older horse, I suggest spending as much time as possible with him/her, before purchase.

I know a lot of "mixed' breed horses that are great and sweet and have made wonderful horses for trail especially. Just because its a mixed breed doesn't mean a thing. Check it out and see what its like.

PS. I feel like dogs are like this too. The best ones are the ones that are so mixed you can't even identify them!
