Warlander is a cross bewteen a Andalusian and a Fresian. The Andy was orginally bred to be the prefect warhorse.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Andalusian x Friesian

Lusitano x Friesian


The Lusitano crosses almost seem to have a more fluid trot, verses were the Andalusian crosses have a more flashy trot. I'd have to see them in real life to tell for sure though >.< Either way, both are stunning crosses.

I'm all goo-goo-ga-ga over these two stallions

I'm not extremely impressed with 2nd one, but 1st one is just OMG! And how they could make him so shiny too!

And thanks for posting, btw!

I know! O_O My horse has NEVER been that shiny >.>
If I ever get a really nice Friesian mare with good papers, I'd breed her to one of those stallions faster than you can say "Wait, what?"

Pretty, pretty stallions

Wait! I'll fix it....

Even the most experienced & educated breeders can screw up a cross breed. ANY time you breed a horse, you're gambling whether it's within the breed, or out. Think of the thousands of horses bred from a world famous sire - how many of them echo Dad's skill? I've had plenty of mixed breed horses that were incredible - some of the best I've ever ridden. I've also had a few that you wonder what the heck the parents were like to end up with such a goofy baby.
That said, I prefer straight up well bred, well HANDLED horses first & foremost. Although I do not have one (maybe one day) one of my favorite crosses is the National Show Horse - Arab & Saddlebred. Incredible movement...
