What would you want to do with it? That would be the biggest thing in deciding breed. You are naming a large range of types of horses/breeds.
I like a TB/QH cross for an appedix, for versatility. Depending on how it moves and stuff you could go english or western or even both depending on the horse.
Good luck in you hunt!! :)
Hi. If I felt the need to have another horse I'd adopt from a rescue organization instead of breeding. There are already plenty of homeless TB's and TB crosses, and even some warmblood and friesian crosses out there that need homes. Equine rescues are over run with horses right now. Many of these horses are very well bred and healthy--they are surrendered to rescues because the owners can't afford to keep them in this economy. Also, horse prices are at rock-bottom.
I know it's great to breed your own foal, but there are so many out there already that need homes. As a horse person, I'm sure you already know all of this. I'm glad that you aren't really thinking of breeding--just dreaming. That's fun, too. We actually have a young bay TB/Friesian cross at the farm that was given to my sister (a vet) who needs a home. He's a beauty--I agree that it's a nice cross!! I'm certainly not against breeding. I just think it needs to be done responsibly (which I'm sure you'd do!)
All my horses are rescues and with the way thins are I am not planing on breeding her just never had a horse that was worth even dreaming of breeding so I know too well why not to breed just having fun and apparently its a good thing cause I don't pick good mixes apparently so there is a baby that needs a home we need a baby around here really we do we have lots of food and room and the most important love of little girls and a good farrier and vet so if the baby needs a home we have one we have so many old timers here well only 3 but the others are teens cept baby she's 2 and a pony poor thing with all these TBs but she's sure someday she will grow up to be one
I knew you were talking about breeding hypothetically. I hope I didn't offend you. Like I said, I'm not against breeding. We breed Morgans and Moriesians (Morgan/Friesian), but we didn't breed last year and won't be breeding any time in the near future because of the state of the horse industry right now. I think all horse owners and breeders need to take a step back and look at what they are doing at this point, and we should all also pass the word about responsible breeding any chance we get. But I also know it is a lot of fun to imagine the possibilities of breeding a certain horse you love!
