I have a mare I breed, Her Mother is a Standardbred her sire a Clydesdale.
6years ago when I made the decision A lot of people boo hoo'ed me but now those same people are chasing their tails to try & buy her & are out there doing the cross themselves.
I went for Standardbred rather than TB because her mother is a beautiful piece of horse flesh & had a Temperament to die for. I wanted all that but a little heavier.
The resulting foal is here with my non horsey Husband riding her :
Here is her Dam:
I don't have one of her sire unfortunately as my old PC ate it!!
Here is another of the foal & her Dam
