Red face More bone/substance to this mare!

Not that I'm looking to breed again but if I were I would defiantly want something with more bone than Freya. Am not too fussed about height but I love solid types. Freya has thrown more to the TB side of her breeding and it looks as though her foal has too, despite the fact that the stallion is half Clydesdale
So I want to know what you would put over Freya to end up with something more bulky and with more bone?
Thanks for your thoughts

I'll upload some more once my computer plays ball
Don't care about breed or colour. Only confirmation, bone and attitude but like I said, I'm not planing on having another foal! I'm aching to get back to riding her

I'd be looking at welsh cob - they ARE beautiful and cross brilliantly. The other horse I'd look at would be connemara - also a wonderful cross - of course these don't give you a huge horse but they have good bone and great movement and jumping ability in the connemara).

Huge horses are overrated I think, having just downsized (from 16.3 - 15.3ish) from having huge horses all my life (Apart from the Persil). As I got older I realised that they got harder and harder to get back on when you got off - forever looking for a bloody log or a bank.

Having said that, if you really want a decent sized horse, I would go for Cleveland Bay - STUNNING movement, real beauties - here's a pic of a friend's mare who stayed with us for a while...

I would think a Irish Draught or cleveland bay or a 100% draft horse belgian or percheron. JMHO

PS my stud would give your next foal some more bone
