Miniature Horse x Shire

Now, let me just say that I have no plans at all to breed a miniature with a heavy draft. I'm not sure what the foal would be like, if it would have problems or if it would be a unique horse. :)

Anways, has anyone heard of a miniature bred to a shire, clydesdale, percheron...or really any big old draft? What has that foal been like? I am totally curious about what that would be like.

I'm sure a draft stud breeding a mini mare would lead to drastic problems, assuming the mare survived the breeding.

But a mini stud to a draft mare, it's really not any different than a male dachshund breeding a lab. You get something in the middle.

We did have a user here, can't remember who, that has/had a Mini and TB cross. The horse was fine and sound.
