I know that this is an old thread but I had never seen it before. The instant that I saw the title I KNEW that someone would post a picture of their American Warmblood and start an all out mud slinging war with the owners of warmbloods from European descent! And I was right! HAHA
I don't think it's that big of a deal. I think that everyone knows that when someone says that they have an American Warmblood that it's likely a draft cross. I've seen some pretty spectacular draft crosses from excellent breeding programs.
It's funny how that word "warmblood" gets everyone all in a tizzy though isn't it?
Papers don't matter much to me. However, I can understand why some people get all crazy about it though. If I spent $25,000 on a European Warmblood I don't want there to be ANY confusion on how "special" that makes my horse.
Sorry, I just couldn't resist :)
I hope you all are still enjoying your horses because I think that's what really matters!!!
