Yes, but some people don't agree with crossing dogs either

I think that what everyone is arguing about is the sheer number of horses we have now.(over population)

Any foal brought into this world is one more that has to be fed, watered, ect..

There are soo many needy horses , and no where for them to go.

I think DELETE's horse is a good example of that kinda cross horse..

However it is probably a risky cross to try and make,(although DELETE'S is very nice)and their would probably be many foals that are conformational disasters.

I think that the breeding horses need to be judged on QUALITY.Not their CROSS STATUS.

A purebred thoroughbred can be a conformational trainwreck. Sure he's a purebred stallion, but is he quality?

Meanwhile there can be a gorgeous, conformationally correct Paint Cross, who has color, stamina, presense, and nice qualities under saddle......

Who do you breed to?

Of course their are other scenarios, but the problem with most BYBs is that given the two choices, they will choose the one with the lowest stud fee.( of couse that tends to be a conformational wreck of a ThoroughaWalka-Appa-Freisa-bian. )Thus giving crosses a bad name.

That is true, but I'm going to say its becoming more accepted depending on the breeds. Whether it be in pet stores, breeders, or even rescues, certain mixes are not going under one name (puggle, cockapoo, labradoodle etc.) instead of beagle mix, cocker spaniel mix, Labrador mix.

However it is probably a risky cross to try and make,(although DELETE'S is very nice)and their would probably be many foals that are conformational disasters.
That is very true WildPony. There are even purebred horses that are conformational disasters.

That would be quite an interesting horse, not sure i'd ever want to see one tho

I agree. I wish my gelding could be bred, he would make gorgeous babies.

i wish that stallions didn't just get bred cause the owners could. I wish that there was a reason for breeding them and that they actually could use the foals. Because if they are trying to crossbreed then they have no way to guarantee that the foal will turn out ok and if they are not planning on raising the possible wreck themselves i think they shouldn't do it. I think that they should be prepared to keep the foal and then after they have confirmed its not a wreck then they should think about selling it or not.
