Its immoral? Oh for crying out loud get a grip who in the world do you think you are that you have any right to call someone immoral because they breed horses you don't think should be bred. Your insulted? Well IMO your a joke.

BTW why would I stand up and say breeding horses I don't like is wrong? I don't think its wrong at all theres people on here that don't like the horses I breed and I'm certainly not changing anything because of that. If someone wants to work to make laws that only horses trhey like should be bred you go right ahead and try doing that. I'll be on the other side protecting my right to breed what I want not what you want me to breed.

And I'm very comfortable with my morals thank you.

twogeldings, I see where you coming from. "Why are people breeding down this breed [Fresian] just to make a profit."

boxer, those breeding are not immoral, stupid, yes. And in the long term it will hurt the breed and if the breeder is aroundthem too.

The best way to counter those breeders is buy horses from other breeder who meet with your requirements. And a government bureaucracy telling breeders what to do, will make things worse, in the states look at the BLM and the mustrangs. How the the Australian government dealing with the Brumbies?

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

my paint mare is bred to a friesian he is approved won ster status in holland, will be in the world equestrian games in 2010.. My mare has great conformation, I dont see any problem in cross breeding just as long as it's done responsibly. That's just my 2 cents, and opinion..

I think that's the point the OP was trying to make...some cross breeding can work out well...if you do your homework.
The problem is just breeding any popular breed to any other popular breed just because they're cool.

yes I agree see now gypsy crossed with friesian I think that rediculous I think those two breeds shouldn't be crossed and left alone cross a gypsy with a qh, arab, what ever have you that's fine, breed a friesian to a qh, arab or whatever that's fine too like anyone says do your home work first. But I perticularly wouldnt cross the gypsy and friesian I think that would be recipe for disaster and a hugley muscular squaty type horse...

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?

I agree which is why I can never figure out why theres people that slam what another person breeds. If you don't like a certain thing don't breed for it, if you do then go ahead.

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....
