Scroll down, and her name is Frosty. The pictures of that horses is my mare's full brother

Definitely a draft cross.

This is a team of belgian draughts at the cheshire Show this summer, theyre very grand, about 19hh and over is average for them, feet like dinner plates and very gorgeous, they are a lot bigger both height and width wise compared to a begian warmblood who look to me like most other european warmblood horse, =) then again im a confirmed draught horse girl n not a wamblood fan in general, hehe

Here are a couple of pics of my belgian warmblood, sporthorse, not draft.

Everytime I tell someone what he is, they always respond with: "man, he doesn;t look like a belgian at all!" To which I have to explain how belgian warmbloods are like dutch or swedish warmbloods, their own breed. Belgian warmbloods are great jumpers. IN fact, one recently won a grand prix near where I live, and a bunch were in the show jumping rounds at WEG this fall.

Here's Samson!

wren, Samson! Is very HANDSOME!! And looks like a great jumper!!

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

Stupid question:

In the link to the dam, it lists her as a Belgium cross, not Belgian. Is this the same and people just calling it by a different name? Like sorrel and chestnut?

I believe the names are interchangable. I noticed that too when I first found that website. It's usually spelled Belgian, but I've seen Belgium and Belgien. But yes, she's also a cross. (Appendix X Belgian/however you want to spell it)

He is absolutely gorgeous! I'd always thought Draft/WB were totally different but then some people said they weren't and I figured I'd ask the real experts ;) I was also confused because my mare is a fabulous jumper, and just has generally beautiful gaits, which I'd associate with a WB cross more than a Draft cross. I know how you feel though; my mare's an isabella palomino, so in the winter when I show her people always ask if she's gray because her hair gets so light. Then I have to explain to them that yes, her coat dramatically changes color and that all palominos are not the same color... Haha.

Even heavy draft horses can create a beautiful moving horse if they are crossed with the right thing and the foal lucks out and gets good genes. The mare, Frosty, that you linked is actually a very nice looking draft cross. It's not surprising that she throws good foals.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
