No - you cannot say Warmblood, you are misleading people and you are insulting those who spend years and time into their breeding programs to produce true Warmbloods.
I have friends who breed WB's - one breeds Zangersheide's *sp* and he takes his stock to Inspections to keep his lines approved and clean. He spends alot of money on his breeding program to ensure that his horses are improved apon year by year.
I have another who breeds Han's - and the same story.
Another who breeds Dutch WB's - and the same story.
It would be an insult to my friends, who spend years, money, time and sweat and blood into their breeding programs to ensure that their lines are what they need to be - they have the right to call their horses Warmbloods.
And - Lippizanner Stallions are not Warmblood's. They are a lineage of their own.
To be honest and forthwrite, you deserve to call your horse what it is - a Lip/TB. Or a TB X Lip.
