Talking Mum Shetland & Dad Welsh?

My friend Esther breeds horses with her mum. They have accidentally bred a Shetland mare called Belle with A Welsh stallion named Duke. What will come out of that?

A welsh/shetlandLol

Welsh sec.a and shetlands are very similar in height....it should turn out just fine. I believe it can still be registered 1/2 Welsh.... Not sure On the shetland...

They're both good jumpers, so it should make a baby born to jump :) I wonder what colour it will be?

Foals dont always take on the traits of their parents :)

That's actually not that uncommon of a cross. I've seen quite a few that are fantastic leadline ponies/

Can be registeted as half welsh, or national show pony, but shetland registries don't allow have-breds.

I didn't think so,but I was being too lazy to look it up...lol.

A welsh/shetland cross will probably be quite cute :)

Yep, I know because my Shetland/mini cross isn't elligible to be registered with the shetland association. National Show Pony is an option, though, to be eligible there has to be one parent registered as either a mini or a shetland.
