Morgan Friesian...What Do You Think?

Tungsten is a Morgan Friesian. I know some people are against half Friesians and what not. So what do you think of his parents and the outcome? His dam is the Morgan, sire Frieisian. Where do you see each of the breeds in him? I don't know much about Morgans myself. Thanks!

I can't really answer your question. I don't know a lot about Morgans, but my family used to own a horse that was part Friesian and Foxtrotter. He was a nice horse for being such a unusual cross. He had the Friesian looks except for one white sock.

Ya the last three are Tungsten. The first is when we first brought him home. Last two are pretty recent. I have only had him about 4 months. I like his color now but I miss his darkness. He is outside normally 8 hours a day and is totally bleached. He has a very obvious mane "tan line" lol.

Okay, it may just be me, but he looks like an oversized Morgan. lol One of the guys at the stable we board at has a QH X belgian cross and he looks like a giant QH.

Anyway, I do see the friesian in his head and a bit in his neck, but the rest of him looks Morgan...only bigger. That's just my opinion, though.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I own a Friesian Sporthorse colt, so you won't have the 'omg it's not PURE' bias from me!

With that being said, these crosses usually do okay because morgans are built a bit like friesians--thicker, upright neck carriage, etc. and they don't look like they were put together by four different children. :) However, they often don't amount to a lot because their aren't a lot of sporthorse morgans (not saying it's not possible... just not very likely.), and the ones that do exist... usually don't get bred to friesians. The mother is 50% of his genes... and often the weakest link.

He doesn't look terrible--he doesn't have ideal hind end angles, and his back is a little long, and his shoulder is a bit straight, but he can probably do a ton of low level eventing, dressage, etc., and with a great brain, too.

Ya I'm hoping his hips level a bit more since he just turned four, so there is still some hope lol.
