    Best crosses you've heard of?

    Any unusual good crosses? The ones that make you say 'I don't know why this was made' But does great. There is one at my barn that is welsh/connemara/morgan/unknown. Probably shouldn't have been bred, but won reserve grand champion at the warmblood trials.
    Anyone hear of a Connemara/Irish draft cross?

    I love Connemaras, I think they cross well with so many breeds. Welsh too.

    I have a Percheron/paint cross who is superb (my word for today lol). His half sister (same sire), not so much.

    I think a lot depends on the individual horses being crossed, more than the cross itself. Heck, I've seen appendix QHs (a fairly common cross in the States) who were absolute train wrecks.

    Are you sure of her parentage? When I got my mare I was sure she was a Perch/morgan - only to find out she's a purebred Canadian horse! The ancestors of the Morgan breed - much draftier though :)

    I like all european warmblood crosses (warmblood to warmblood, no mixing of heavier blood in)
    But my absolute love are Latvian driving horse X with Latvian sports horse (they include Hannoverian, Holstein, Oldenburg and even Trakhenes blood)
