This leaves you with lesser quality stallions to pick from.
This is part of the reason that Friesian crosses are so looked down upon.
The German registry allows for outcrosses, but the Dutch registry does not. Any horse who can't make it in the Dutch registry as an approved breeding stallion is usually registered with the German registry. So by default, you only have stallions to pick from who weren't good enough to make it into the Dutch registry.
Breeding is a crapshoot at best, and crosses are even more random. About the only thing you're likely to get is a black foal, since both parents are black. It's not a given, but it's likely
. What parent it will or won't look like, and whether or not it'll be gaited are all up in the air.
I'm not anti-breeding, but I'm not sure just what you expect out of this cross. You may get the best of both parents, or you may get the absolute worst.
