Anyone else have a Arab/Appy cross AKA Sarmadee??

I adopted this gelding from a rescue almost a year ago, I could tell just by the look of him he was an Arab/Appy cross. A friend of a friend came out and said "OMG what a gorgeous Sarmadee!" she went on and on about how stunning he was. He is the sweetest horse in the world. Unfortunately, he has a dropped hip so I can only use him for light riding. I wish I could take advantage of that Arab stamina! He learns incredibly fast and does tricks though. Very smart boy. Either way I love him just the same.

Does anyone else have a Arab/Appy cross? Id love to see other pictures of some and any comments are welcome!

Don't mind all the white hair in this one, was shedding out my mare that day lol

He's BeUTIFul! :) Really is a shame he can only be used for light riding, but maybe because he is so smart, you could perhaps try to train him to follow and carry buckets and things around for you? Lol!

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

I haven't personally seen any mixes that were immediately from Appaloosas mixed with Arabians. But I have seen apps and POAs that have a sort of obvious arabian influence on them. The first one is my gelding, a POA named Moe. He looks like more of an arabian mix in some pictures. My folders are overflowed with pictures of him all fluffy so I didn't have much in the way of his really skin shining through.

The next picture(s) are of a purebred Appaloosa (no color). He prety much looks like an arabian to me!

But you've definitely got yourself a gorgeous horse there! It's sort of a shame that he can only be ridden lightly, but that's better than not riding him at all considering all of that potential. ^^

Moe is so cute! The 2nd one really does look like an Arab...wow! My boy has the Arab movements to him, does yours? When he's running and he has the prance and flips his tail up..

that's interesting...Ive never considered trying to get him registered since he's a gelding, wouldnt have much purpose other then being cool if I can get him DNA tested and find out more about his pedigree.

Here is ours - 3/4 Arabian, 1/4 Appy...his sire broke thru one fence and bred the mare thru another. The picture is about a year old, but he hasn't changed much.

Since he's a gelding the ApHc may hardship register him if you don't have his sire/dam info
