Now looking at the first one, he is quiet a funny shape.....

There are very few friesian crosses I'd purchase. The breed is lovely the way they are and I don't believe they cross well.

fuadteagan- I thought the very first picture looked familiar.. that's the sire of one of the horses at my barn! He has unfortunately passed away recently.. I think there was a fire at his barn. :(

The problem with that plan is you are just as likely to get a horse that is not good at anything than you are to get one that takes on the good qualities of both horses.

That can be said of any two horses, regardless of the breeds.

If you are breeding two like creatures (same breed with history) you have a far better chance of getting what you want out of it than you do if you breed two unlike breeds with no history of the breeding.

I always find it odd, that people think an f1 cross is suddenly a breed. To make a breed, it takes many generations and a ton of animals, to make a breed - one which breeds true, time after time.

I have seen all kinds of f1 crosses, called Georgian Grandes.

Fresians really aren't my thing.
I just don't understand the point of crossing them. If you are looking for an eventer why not go with a Hanovarian or some other warm blood.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
