weefoal; Oh god x-O My mom has a labradoodle. It's a bird hunting dog. Have you any idea the energy of those things? D: I can just keep up with daily play with my Great Dane O-O'
Aliboo; I'm not condeming ALL Friesian crosses. I condem POOR crosses. Which these people are doing. They breed for PROFIT with little care of Conformation, Lines, anything! They pick a mare with a pretty
color then run off and breed her. They are having troubles selling these mares, you can tell because they are lowering there prices.
I saw a beautiful cross I would have loved to own. She had a fantastic dam, beautiful sire, and she herself has an amazing conformation. A very WELL BRED foal. Thumbs up for her breeders.
I'm not saying 'NO ONE SHOULD BREED BECAUSE..'
No, I'm saying what these people are doing is wrong because they don't do it well.
county; Yes, I saw it is immoral. I say it is flat out disgusting.
I met a cute little stallion once. He had warts, rainrot, he was thin, all four feet went in different directions. Terrible conformation. The owner wanted to breed him. I wanted nothing more than to take him home, geld him, then nurse him back to health and retire him if nothing else. He was a Quarter Horse with supposedly 'great lines'.
Breeding these mares to that stallion is just about as bad. Not every colt is meant to breed. Not every mare is meant to have foals.
If they were CARRIER mares, mares who are carrying a pure-bred Friesian foal (of good breeding, of course) I wouldn't say a thing. But it's not the case, unfortunately.
mybabysewanka: What you are doing is crossing smart. Great mare + Great stud ='s (normally) Awesome baby.
county: "But what if the person breeding that cross isn't concerned about that type of horse? What if their just as happy with the results of their cross that another person is with what they crossed?"
They aren't breeding these foals for there family. They are breeding for sale.
Wait! I'll fix it....
