If you have a mutt for a horse...

Ok stupid question (trying to avoid stressing about the show this weekend).

If you have a mutt for a horse, what breed do you call him?

For example, Buzz is a papered mutt. His sire is the dressage great Rolls Royce, a huge lineage of Westphaliens. His dam is a registered AQHA and goes back to King bred lines. My One And Only Dutch Warmblood

But he's got a COP for KWPN because Rolls Royce was a KWPN approved stallion. So people call him a Dutch Warmblood, but he's not really LOL he's a Westphalien/QH cross. Clear as mud?

So weird. Anyone else got similar stories? What breed do you call your horse? I stick with the uncomplicated DW cross.

Wow, none of mine are quiet so complex. About the biggest mutts I have are a breed their own (mustangs) but other than that, the only cross that I have is a QHxBelgian that could never be registered. Good luck keeping all that straight and he sounds lovely.

He is - he's gorgeous. At least to me he is LMAO!

You can't ride papers though right?

Is Rafe the QH/Belgian cross? (I hope I got the name right) the foal your mare had?

Yes, Ma'am. That's him. And I kinda live by that credo that you can't ride papers. I only have 3 horses of my 12 that are registered. LOL

My mare is a breed all unto herself - I call her a PITA! We have no idea what she is. We can only guess. I understand she can be registered as a buckskin with the ABA, but they are just a color registery for all intents and purposes.

I have a mutt horse !

I have no idea what breed he is, what his true age is, or who his parents were. I call him a grade, many people try to call him a paint, bc he is a pinto, but I don't because who knows if he's really a paint or not. =]

I have a belgian cross-with-what-I-don't-know...but if you look at my avatar you can clearly see the belgian in him.

My mare I just call a pinto. Not a breed I know but I haven't a clue what she is. Some have suggested spotted draft cross because she's big boned but I just can't seem to call her that because I'm really not sure.

I think I have one or two of that breed myself!

I call my horse a Gypsy Vanner (Gypsy Cob if you're english lol), but that's only because that's the only breed that fits her criteria LOL in england any mixes of breeds tend to be refered to as a cob, but it's a very loose term to be honest. Lucky is from a rescue centre so I don't know her breed, her real birthday or where she was born, so she's a my little mystery horse, just makes her more interesting haha!

Mystery horses are the best kind I reckon.
