Oh look, my dream horse! Not in terms of breeding, necessarily, but he sure is handsome!

what is with the "friesians are beautiful and elegant, they must cross well with everything!"?????

i know of two breeds that typically cross well with most breeds; Arabians and Thoroughbreds. with these two breeds you have a better chance of ending up with a decent horse from a weird cross. regardless though, a ton of thought should be put into any breeding, more so cross breeds. in this case;

large draft type, long high set neck, bred for the harness, tall, etc + short, low set neck, stock type bred to move quick and work cattle/sprint = well in this case thankfully a colorful, decently built horse with the best of both.

I have seen this cross with the low set qh neck, large freisian head and feet, long back and the 14.2hh of the qh, also the heavy body of a freisian with a qh head and feet. In this case they came out lucky, many are not as fortunate.

Why, to make pretty babies, of course!

When those of us who saw how awfully conformed the horse was spoke up, we were met with hostility and "She's a friesian cross so therefore she's perfect" attitude.

Well, I understand that the morgan cross I have is pretty popular in Canada where he was bred as smaller carriage horses. One Friesian cross that is simply stunning to me though are the Georgian Grandes <3

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Yes, these are good choices to outcross with, and I have seen a lot of nice ones. BUT again outcomes are so hard to predict, but I do think you improve the odds by choosing one of these two breeds as one side of the coin.
