Breed Crosses?

What's the weirdest breed cross you've ever seen? I had a Tennessee Walker/ Quarter Horse and he had a Quarter Horse chest and butt but had a Walker head and legs, and had the WORST trot I've ever ridden. And his canter was absolutely fabtabulous. Like riding air.

Tell me some other crosses and what makes them awkward/cool!


If you're not practicing, someone, somewhere is, and when you meet him, he will win.

Again, is there such a thing as a respectable Walker cross? All the Walker crosses I've heard of are fugly as heck.


I've seen a Paint/Percheron that was very, very awkward. Big, fat head, downhill, AWFUL cow hocks. But it was a very pretty color. That makes it all worth it. *rolls eyes*

I looked for a comparable picture on the net, but couldn't find something that ugly.

Wow! What does that even look like?

Actually, if you want to see him, he's Rocket on my horses. He's the Walker cross I was talking about, and for a Walker cross, he's not bad looking. The only thing is that he was really base-narrow and had a massive head.

It looked a little like that, only the swayback wasn't as bad.

And your Rocket is a pretty nice Walker-X. I've seen many if WAY worse heads. His isn't bad at all. :) I mean Roman nose to an extreme and pig eyes so bad that I have no idea how the poor things could see...

Rocket was my first horse, and even if he was ugly (which he isn't! XD) I wouldn't have seen it.

I have a slight problem with Belgian/Morgan crosses. Their cute when they're little but as soon as they really start growing (after 3 years), well......

Now that's not to say that they aren't great horses.

I think anything gaited crossed with anything NOT gaited would be awkward anyway, you know?

National Show Horses are a mix between a Saddlebred(sometimes gaited) and an Arabian, they're nice looking and moving.
