How far is TO far? Unrespectable breeders

How far is TO far? Gypsy x Friesian? Friesian or Gypsy x whatever you can find cheap to sell for more JUST because it has a Friesian cross foal inside? 7/8's Friesian foal out of a 3/4's Friesian mare?


Guess who's not buying a dream foal from them. O-o
Plus there stallion most certainly does not have a stallion conformation.

Friesian crosses can be beautiful, versatile, fantastic horses. But when bred wrong all you produce is a whole lot of nothing.


Sad, really sad :/

BYB's love Gypsies.

A Gypsy x Foxtrotter cross. WHY? These people apparently stopped maturing mentally at the age of twelve and are somehow under the misguided belief that a Gypsy cross is somehow rare and special. When's the last time you saw a Gypsy or Gypsy cross in the Grand Prix, or any kind of significant competition? Never. They're not that great.

Friesian crosses are iffy, especially if it's not an approved stallion and/or the the breeders have no clue what they're doing. There are some really awesome Friesian sporthorses out there, though. I saw a Friesian/Morgan that was really nice. Textbook example of educated and responsible breeding. Unfortunately, breeders like that are the minority. I'm not a huge advocate of crossing Friesians because they're so rare and cross breeding nearly wiped the breed out before. They don't cross well with too many other breeds, either. Like a Thoroughbred. Why on earth would you cross a big, thick, baroque-type horse with a lean, sleek TB? That's like breeding a Clydesdale to a Hackney. The foals almost always turn out looking like a 6-year-old molded them out of Play-Doh. And we all know where horses like that end up.

Ending my little rant there before I have an aneurysm. ;)

Not 100% sure just what you mean from your original post but there is no to far what a person wants to do as long as its legal. You may not breed a certain thing, I may not breed a certain thing but we have the choice not to. Someone else has the same rights we do to breed if they so choose. As long as no law is broken then so be it.

Just because it's legal, doesn't mean it's a good idea.
I really don't understand any of these crosses either.

Oh I agree it may not be a good idea but I can't think of one person I know that's never done something that wasn't a good idea. Personally I have such a full life I can't imagine getting all worked up about what the rest of the world does with their horses.

I wouldnt say I'm worked up about it...I'm going to sleep soundly tonight despite bizarre crosses. I just think people would use educated breeding practices instead of just winging it. Is it going to happen? I doubt it. Still wish it would though.

To a point, I don't understand some crosses either but then I don't need to nor do I have a reason to. Its just not my business.

Friesian App crosses.....there's someone that breeds them somewhere on the east coast and it's just awful. We had one come to our rescue and the poor horse - while younger looked like he'd be a really cute dressage horse, and he was the color of a frappuccino coffee and speckled, he grew VERY awkwardly. He developed severe arthritis by the age of 4, and had to be just a trail horse. Even so he still had issues, as he was very narrow, with the body of a Friesian, on the legs and chest of a smaller, narrower App. It caused severe joint issues and while he had a sweet personality, he needs MAJOR arthritis supps to keep sound...HUGE on the forehand (neck, head, withers) on a narrow chest and small butt that stayed butthigh. It was really sad and quite frustrating to see....sweet horse though.
