I know that's what broodmares are for. I have seen and heard about people who get broodmares breed them right away and then find out that the horse won't even let you get near. If only the horse had been there for awhile and gotten close to the people.

I would just like to let you know that I've seen a colt that was a result of crossing a Friesian stallion with a palomino Saddlebred, and he was INCREDIBLE.

He was buckskin, with thick black feathers and a long black mane and tail. He also had wonderful Saddlebred movement. I actually almost bought him, but somebody else got to him first.

I don't agree with crossing some horses, like Quarter horses and Friesians, because the breeds are so different. But Saddlebreds and Friesians are both flashy, high-headed horses, so I think you will usually get a good baby.

You can actually see a video of him here...

He's the second horse on the page. But he won't be there for long, because he has been sold already

I have actually seen several QH/ fresian crosses and they turned out pretty nice. I was actually looking into breeding my appendix QH mare with a friesan when she was younger and the stallion owners were very excited to see the result of that cross. I ended up not breeding her but I think that would have been a very nice foal.

I really don't believe in temperment with breeding. I believe that's just how the horses are or depending on how they are raised.

I really don't think that this is a black and white issue. I think that temperment can be influenced to different levels both by the genes of the parents and by how the horse is raised. The combination of these two things creates the individual horse.

I would not make the choice to breed two horses with nasty temperments in the hopes of getting a sweet tempered foal. That does not mean though, that two nasty tempered horses cannot produce a sweet tempered foal. Odds are just better to start with parents with temperments, and physical traits that you like if you want to see it in the foal.

My stallion started out with a fabulous temperment coming from parents with good temperments, and continues to be a pleasure to be around as a five year old because I have nurtured that temperment that already existed in him.

Along the same line, a wonderfully tempered foal can be raised to be nasty under the right circumstances.

When it comes to labelling and stereotypes; the reason some of them exist in the first place is because they sometimes have some truth behind them. In general, yes, quarter horses are known for their calm temperments. That does not mean that there are not many quarter horses who are not calm. But again, a quarter horse who may have been genetically perdispositioned to be calm, may have been raised in such a way to change that. Just because a general label exists does not mean all individuals fit that label exactly. There are many factors beyond genes that go into making an individual the way they are.

As I said, this is not a black and white issue...there are many shades of grey.

Im confused, Geez I can't get the drift :roll: You need more than intranet advice as far as I am concerned..........

OMG! The mare is a saddlebred? OUCH! Iv'e seen this happen alot. I think that the foal is going to be way to big. I think if your going to cross them, have the mare be a freisien. Sorry if yall disagree but my friend bought a standardbred and some idiot bred her to a draft and the foal died. And the mare had to have major surgery.
