With horses and dogs alike, a breed can only even be considered to be a real breed when it reproduces true to type. An F1 generation Poodle x Lab is not a breed. Why? Because the F2 and any following generation will be all over the place.

Same goes for your "Blazer" horses. The fact that you have two "purebreds" and one is so far from the breed standard on so many levels, shows that they do not breed to type. It is insanely hard and takes many generations to get a crossbreed of two breeds to breed true to type, let alone four. So there is no breed.
Pretty much all legitimate new breeds are created out of a specific need - i.e. an animal is needed for a specific job. Someone who wakes up one day and starts making papers for crossbreeds on a computer in not a registry...

yes, I agree. I kind of think of those registries like the "OFFICIAL CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY" you see being offered for dubious collectables on late night TV. Yeah, I have a printer and can make certificates all day

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I think everyone is jumping ahead of their selves.

Oh, and 'designer' dog breeds are real dog breeds that can be registered. Labradoodles and so on. They are not 'MUTTS', they are a designer breed.

they are still mutts
you are being brain washed

So are Morgans, QHs, ASBs and TBs. Imagine that.

I have a legitimate question.

Pretty much all breeds were created to fill a specific niche. QHs were created because cowboys and ranchers needed a compact, strong, good-minded horse that was versatile and could work cattle. TBs were created to race. Gaited breeds, like the Missouri Fox Trotter, were created to provide a smooth gaited riding horse with good stamina so that the owner could be out all day checking the plantation or some such and not be sore from hours in the saddle (anyone else notice that almost all the American gaited breeds originated in the South, where a smooth, comfortable riding horse was needed to check the plantations? Just an observation...).

So, my question is this: What niche does the Blazer horse fill that isn't already filled by another, more established breed?

They are cross breeds with cutesy names designed to scam people out of their money.
