Coming from the other side of the argument, I just can't stand the thought of crossing an Appy on an Arab. I just threw up in my mouth. Wouldn't breed to that stallion for all the tea in China.

And that is why he only appeals to a select crowd ;)

Also why I am not concerned about him being registered as an appaloosa or worry that the breed will suffer from a select crowd that loves an Arab look and Appaloosa color. I rarely ever see any Appaloosas with Arabian blood, most cross their Appaloosas with AQHA. Just like not everyone is a fan of pintabians, some like old traditional solid colors while others want flashy tobiano pintos with the looks of an Arabian. To each their own

His Arab 3/4 is super well bred. I'll go that far!

When I bo't my appy mare 20 yrs ago I could believe how many breeds could be used. Mine was a quarter horse dressed up like an appy. Arabs and TB's were allowed as well as QH. The quarter horse type was very popular at one time.

I too am not impressed.
Why not try and get back to the true origin and crossing with barbs and kiegers if necessary?

I wouldn't turn down an Arab/appy cross, but that stud doesn't have any of the appy attributes other than color. Thicker bones, wider barrel, less steep shoulder etc... He is pretty but not substantial enough for me to deserve the appy cred.

Do factor in his age, he was born in 2011 ;)
Those pictures were probably as a yearling or in his two year old year. He is still too young to know how he will fill out at full maturity.

The ApHc has always been open it's gotten less open as time goes on at one point this boy a 3x registered Spanish Barb was registered ApHc:





There are much better photos but for the life of me I can't find them. If I do I'll post them.

And I found this:

I am not a fan of this horse. His add shows a photo of him doing some strange behavior possibly striking which I find a bit unappealing. He also seems to be related to a lot of horses that have done well in the show ring but he himself has done very little. A lot of the add seems to advertise his relatives achievements. I would like to see what this horse can/has done. The combination of one pseudo-strike photo and him having not been shown under saddle make me think his personality leaves something to be desired.

I personally agree completely, I know a few appy/Arabs and I have found them to be pretty disagreeable, hard to work with horses. If course there are exceptions to everything but the few I know seem to have the worst traits of both horses. An appys stubbornness mixed with the flightyness of an Arab (once again the few I know) have not made for a great mix.
