I gotta say, I got a good laugh from your username! LOL


They are mutts, really, not even a breed. But that doesn't mean they're useless.
Totally agree with Cat, as well. :)

My friend calls me that a lot as a joke
She would always laugh and cheer me on when I would take my AW through barrels and other speed events for fun at fair
Since my horse was only one that wasn't an qh or paint

I know exactly how you feel!
It's the same way here with me and my Arabians. It's major Quarter Horse/Paint country out here, but my little Arabs are starting to make a mark!

Good for you!
They're such awesome horses
I went to the fair this year and finally noticed a few arabs and a NSH
But the rest were still qh & paints
They're slowly making their way in :)

I didn't know anything about them. But thet're not the only breed or registy that has loose or some might say too loose standards.

At one time Pinto was a breed, if what I heard is true. They were something like a ranch raised Mustangs, and their color was a symbol of their toughness. And, people wanting to get some of the action, breed them to every thing, and destroyed that toughness.

Of course, some people say,"you need one trait to make a breed."
This may be true, but I would hate to see a horse with only one good trait and the rest poor to advange.

To be perfectly honost, I don't think BREED matters. I really don't. Not unless you are showing in a breed specific show. Who really cares if your horse is a QH/Arab cross? Or a QH/TB or whatever... if the horse is healthy and can do what you want it to do... then who really cares?

Of course, I'm not a big confirmation person either. I don't care if the horse paddles a little or might be a little high in the wither... If it is healthy, then I don't really care, not if it can do the job... I have unregistered horses... I have registered horses.... They are all great...........

I think everyone is confused here. There are actually two seperate registries of 'American Warmlood'. The first is the American Warmblood Registry, or AWR. Please do check out their website at www.americanwarmblood.com and you will find this to be a ligitimate breed registry with standard european inspection standards set in place for all breeding stock. They do NOT allow draft horses into this registry, it is quite a bit more respected than what you think. Although ultimatley it is made up of MANY different warmblood breeds.... as such is the Canadian Warmblood society, and the Canadian Sport Horse registry.
There is also the American Warmblood Society, or AWS. This is the one with all of the controversy surrounding it, as it isn't really a 'breed registry' but is in fact based on performance. And yes, draft and draft X's are allowed into this one, although they do have some standards and inspection guidlines. But not to the standard of the AWR.
There are also a large # of folks out there with draft/Tb X whatever that call their horses American Warmbloods when in fact all they are in my eyes are draft X's.
I think maybe they should reclassify that type of horse as a draft sporthorse to avoid all of this confusion. But that will never happen!!

At the end of the day when you look at it, each and every breed was started off by a group of people who thought there were more almighty than everyone else and group together horses of certain areas that had similar conformation, temper and colors and made special names for them aka: breeds.

Nothing special about any of them,it's just what you like:)
