Talking What would you get if....

This was an accidental breeding. But a Palomino Morgan mare about 15.2 hh got bred with a Palomino Belgian about 16.2 hh. What do you think the baby looks like?

A WIDE stout horse with a flat back, big head, and a sweet attitude, likely palomino or chetsnut/flaxen (Belgians aren't really palomino, they're light chestnut/flaxen).

No pictures sorry. Anyway he's almost always covered in mud so it wouldn't really do much good. I'll give you what he looks like in a few minutes.

Okay, right now Ty (the baby) is now 2 or 3. Right now he's maybe 14.5 hh and probably won't top 15.5 hh. The best way to describe his color would be a really light Palomino coloring. He's more like someone bleached him. He's not light enough to be white but he's not even a really light gold or yellow. He's probably going to be an extremely stocky horse.

My horse grew 5 inches AFTER she turned 3. Draft crosses are notoriously late bloomers, so don't count out his height yet.

Also, no such thing as 14.5 hands. It goes 14.1, 14.2, 14.3, and then 15 hands. The .1 or whatever is how many inches past 14 hands, and since there's only 4" in one hand, then you can't have 14.5 h .

He's probably going to be an extremely stocky horse.
Well, that's a given . Half drafts are rarely "lithe" and most Morgans aren't exactly spindly on their own, lol (unless they're those weird looking show Morgans, that look more like Arabs...).
