Anyone familiar with Clyde x TB?

What would you expect from such a cross?

I know some super eventers that are clydexTB, as long as the cross was with two decently conformed parents that complimented each other, then you can get some very nice clydextb's.

I have, and what I would expect is NOT the horse in your picture. I would guess that is a Percheron cross. They started off about 25 yrs ago, at least in MD, to the best of my knowledge through the breeder I got mine from, breeding them for field hunters. She bred many, including a stallion BFF Incognito, who were fabulous both at eventing and hunting. She started out with the 50/50 crosses, and then refined it some and seemed to find (I didn't discuss it with her, but can only say what she ended up breeding and selling) with a 75% TB and 25% clyde.

Mine is the best big lap dog anyone could want.. Truly a wonderful gentle boy. He is now retired at 22 yrs old. No shoes, ever, gets fat on air, and the easiest keeper I have ever had. He raised my daughter, and was smart enough to know to test me, not her, and took fabulous care of her. Just a good boy, and the barn favorite.

As a sidenote-I was at a driving show a couple of years ago, and saw what they called "Clyde light", which made me chuckle, like "Bud light'? Anyway-they look just like a Clyde, but are smaller, being Hackney only crossbreds. However, they still had HUGE feet, at least in proportion to their body and legs.

I had to check the Ad twice and it does say Clyde, but I agree he looks like a Perch. Waiting on a video of him to see how he moves, but by all accounts he is a nice horse, just young and BIG

I would have to say that EVERY clyde X I have seen, especially those that are "drafty" like the one in the pic-could not deny their heritage. Mine is probably the least "type" I have seen, only because he is chestnut. But the white markings, the feathers, slight roman nose-cannot deny his daddy.

Perch X, just for comparison.....

Yup that looks more like it, off to check why he is listed as Clyde.

He is listed as a Clyde because his Dam was a registered Clyde, and his Sire is a registered TB.

Daddy could've easily contributed the grey! He looks nice. Doesn't look like he has much feathering though I thought that was the point of drafts! Actually that may be a nice thing to not have to maintain on a grey horse.

The owners might have chopped the feathers off.

Are you still horse hunting, GH?
