Started she a warmblood or ?

Lol...I guess everyone calls their draft/hot blood mixes different things...I was told she isn't a warmblood....but in my understanding that would be a mix of a hot breed (like a tb) and a cold blood breed (like a lipizzan :)

She is lippy/tb by the way :)

So could I consider her a warmblood....

I've always been told warmblood is not a cross between hot/cold.

I don't think it's the case that any mix of hot/cold blood automatically equates to a warmblood. Most warmbloods, to my understanding, have had years (and generations) of thought put into very specific breeding for type. You can't just cross a couple breeds and have the same results. My horses are just draft crosses - ie mutts - and I love them anyways. Your horse doesn't care what she's called

I think it's five generations, maybe four.

Yes, that is what I have heard as well. They are very specific in breeding when it comes to Warmbloods. Lots of people think that if they throw "hot and cold" together they will automatically get a Warmblood. However, I donut believe this to be the case.

Even though it may sound like it makes sense but I don't think it does with horses. I'm honestly not sure what that would make her be.

Technically, to the truest definition of the word, a coldblood and a hotbloodhorse bred together gives a warmblood. So by definition, a warmblood can never be considered a purebred, despite the fact that people will always say "oh, he's a purebred Holsteiner/DutchWarmblood/Trakehner" The only true purebred horse is likely the Arabian.

However, warmbloods have evolved into very distinct and seperate breed from the old coldblood/hotblood cross, especially in Europe, as breeding is MUCH more controlled there than it is in the States/Canada. So you could say that a true warmblood - how the world thinks of warmbloods - is a horse that has a pedigree that can be traced back at least 4-5 generations that is composed of sport horse bloodlines.

Your horse would be called a draft cross :) or A lippizaner cross

She'd be exactly what she is - a Lippizan/TB cross. :) Or, if you want something less syllable-heavy, you can call her an Iberian horse.

Lippizans are not drafts, so she isn't even a draft cross. She's a Lippizan/Thoroughbred cross.

Actually, she could not be referred to as an Iberian Horse/Warmblood. It's an accepted fact that the Lippizan descended from the Andalusian, but that alone does not make it an Iberian as it was not developed on the Iberian peninsula. It was developed in Austria, with Iberian horses imported from Spain.

You could get away with calling her an American Warmblood or a Lippizaner Sporthorse. I've noticed this trend in people tacking "sporthorse" to the end of every breed name if half the blood is Thoroughbred or Warmblood. Canadian Warmbloods are pretty much famous for being PMU babies of uncertain ancestory.
