    I was wondering this to.

    The filly I am buying is an Appaloosa/QH but will be registered with ApHC...so I am guessing I call her an appi. But she is a buckskin and looks nothing like an appi lol. I guess I am just not used to seeing solid appies even though I knew they existed ;)

    Absolutely hehe! I'm getting a wild, new forest pony soon, can't wait to get him, he'll have a little bit of mystery in him too cos there are all sorts in New Forests!

    I have a 3/4 TB 1/4 Shire. I call her an American Warmblood most days (people always asks me what she is at shows) but sometimes I tell people she's a TB cross then if they ask me what she's crossed with I will tell them. I don't introduce her as a Shire cross because people get all snooty about the drafts. It's ridiculous

    I love draft crosses. I want to get a Hanoverian/TB/Draft some day *sigh*

    My gelding is a real Heinz 57. When I adopted him from a PMU rescue, they told me he was a belgian cross, said he'd be about 16 hds at maturity and gave me a picture of him at 6 mos. With his mother. She looks like maybe she's a TB/Clyde cross. When I looked up the ranch he came from in Canada, his mother was listed as paired with a perch/paint stallion. All the Belgian stallions were around 16 hds, the perch/paint stallion was 17.2. My gelding is currently 18 hds! Mostly I just tell people he's a draft cross but he's gorgeous so if they ask, I tell them perch/paint/TB/clyde.

    Our pony is a large leopard spot so we say he's a POA, could be registered as one through the hardship clause if we wanted to show him in POA shows.

    I have a bay mare, who knows what she is. I call her a bay mare or grade mare. I have a half arab half paint or pinto. He has papers but I never registered him so it really isn't important. I like the comment you can't ride papers.
    I was going to show my pinto but situations change and we never got to. My mare and I did some showing and for a no named she did really well.

    When a horse is of mixed or unknown breeding it is usually refered to as grade horse. Doesn't mean anything to me, though. A grade horse is just as good as a registered one.

    Ok, question. I looked up Grade Horse (since I was unfamiliar with the term) and says basically mixed breed and/or no registration, horse of un-known decent or parentage. Now my question. So the filly I am getting is Appi/QH but registered with ApHC....so would she still be considered Grade? Just curious!
