Opinion on Freisian and Quarter horse cross?

I have been thinking about doing this for a while and would value opinions. I am planning to breed my 14 year old quarter horse mare:


She has a very quiet disposition and is an amazing horse. Very smart and will do anything the rider wants no matter the level.

Her parents were palomino and red roan.

I am planning to breed her to a gorgeous 16.3 hand black freisian. I don't have a picture of the actual stud but, for those unfamiliar with what a freisian looks like, here is a random picture off google:



Opinions Please? Do you think the cross will be good? What color do you think it would result in? I have a lot of positive responses from breeders who are really intrigued by the idea and very curious on the results.

Ehh I really don't think the results will be good.... I find the breeds so different and I just don't think the mix will even be that pretty. I say find yourself another really good QH or maybe a TB if your interested. Just my opinion, but really it's your choice.

Deffinately a negative on the TB. Lol

And yes this is a very different cross. And I imagine this is the reason so many of the breeders are curious about the results. The woman, who owns the freisian stud, was the one who gave me the idea and told me she has bred to many breeds and has seen some odd breedings but they have all turned out very well.

But ths is just an idea... and that is why I am asking around as much as possible. I know for a fact I want to breed her though. Just trying to decide if I want to see her with a freisian.

Yeah... I couldn't see that working out well. Both breeds are good looking, but together I doubt you'll get a good looking horse. QH x TB is much more realistic. If you happen to find a picture of a "real-life" QH x Friesian, please post it.. I'm curious.

"real-life" QH x Friesian? You say that like I am the only one who has ever had the idea. I am not the only one nor will I be the last. Google could show you pictures of QH/Friesian cross.

And I am not going to breed her with a TB. And as for realistic? This is a realistic decision. Logical, I am not sure on. That is why I am asking for opinions.

I would like to know why they wouldn't go well with one another though

Breeding a quarter horse to a Freisan wouldn't be something I would choose.

I would think you would have better luck breeding her to another quarter horse or a TB.....its hard to tell as I can see a conformation of your horse.

I have a quarter horse, clyde cross that I breed to a Holstiener that turned on really nice.

I do know that Freisans cross quiet well with the saddle bred horse.....

Yeah but I am not going to breed her to a TB. I can't find a decent enough TB stud and I honestly just want something different.
