Quarter horse x TB

Hi, does anyone know anything about Quarter horse x TB? I'm wondering if it would be a (generally speaking) sturdy horse or would it carry a lot of the TB traits? It's 50/50 TB and Quarter horse, also what are quarter horses generally like? I don't know much about them but I've been warned about TB's (I'm more of a clyide x sort of person)

Thanks heaps

I believe these are called Appendix QH. Many QH have TB blood, and vise versa, to my understanding. I would be very careful generalizing about any breed-they all have their good and bad eggs.

THis is an extremely common cross.

My good trail horse had a lot of TB close up in his qh breeding. He was 16.1 and weighed in at around 1300-a big solid horse. He was forward thinking (the TB trait). He loved the trails and moved out at a good walk with a "where are we going today" attitude.

As with any cross - it could look and act like a 50/50, it could look or act nothing like either, could look and act like 100% of the one.

Even breeding the same mare to the same stallion can result in completely different foals.

Breeding is a science but mother nature is a fickle soul!

My best behaved mare is registered QH but has a lot of Appendix and TB (all the way back to Man O' War) in her bloodlines. She is a Dash for Cash grand-daughter as well. She is the sweetest horse and does anything asked of her. Her back is really long though which sucks.....we call her limousine horse. LOL
