There was a foxtrotter mare on craigslist in my area that was in foal to a gypsy vanner. They wanted $5000 for her...

Haha, well I worked with a gelding, who's dam we knew the breed of, but were uncertain of the fathers breed. His dam was a smaller pony, I'm thinking something along the welsh lines if I remember correctly, who ended up somehow getting out of her stall at a show, and got bred by the owners thought an Andalusian stallion. The gelding had an andalusian type mane and tail, as well as the thick rounded neck, a TINY chest, thick stocky legs, was a palomino type color, and was about 13 hands or so. Wasn't the prettiest horse I've seen. And an ugly fresian arabian cross. I saw another one that actually looked pretty nice, but this one in particular, had the fresian neck, arabian head, arabian legs, fresian butt, arabian shoulders, and the fresian mane and tail, but very little feathering. Don't remember what color she came out, but just wasn't a pretty horse, and she was definately bred on purpose.

Weirdest I've seen is a Thoroughbred x Ardennes. You know how lightly built most TB's are, and how heavy and thick the Ardennes is. The dam was an Ardennes plow mare, and the sire a OTTB. The poor gelding (thank goodness) has a massive thick neck, TB legs, a big roman nose, and the hindquarters and shoulder of a TB. He was bred on purpose. Poor thing.

Good people get cheated, just as good horses get ridden

The strangest one I've seen in person so far has got to be my Standardbred x Arabian... and she's carrying a foal to either a paint or a quarterhorse... We'll see what happens with that one...

She's kinda cute, looks like a petite standardbred, but her necks a little short, and she just looks funny to me, but she was in foal when I got her, so I'm curious to see what she looks like without the baby belly lol.....
