There's a Haflinger/Saddlebred cross that keeps coming up on my city's craigslist. Poor thing is down right ugly.

The strangest cross we have is a appendix QH/Andalusian yearling filly. I don't know why you'd want a cross like that in the first place... If she were mine I'd have bred to a TB or QH so she could be registered. Anyways, she's not bad looking, totally pulls from the top side, so she looks like a bay Andalusian with a slightly longer back.

I've seen a Dartmoor x Andalusian foal, it only showed her head but she was so cute. They'd bred her for a sports pony, so wanted her.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

Azteca (horse) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From what I have seen andalusian x qh seems to be very popular. They could have been breeding for an Azteca.

There has been a breyer of him made :)
I believe that Teddy died this past year.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Here's what I found:

"Theodore O'Connor was humanely euthanized on May 28, 2008 as a result of an injury sustained at Karen and David O'Connor's barn in The Plains, VA. The attending veterinarian stated:"

"He spooked at something while being ridden and bolted. The rider came off and the horse ran toward the barn. He got into a freak accident and slid into the side of the barn and lacerated his right hind leg about 4 inches above the fetlock on the back of the leg. It looked like a knife cut it; he severed the superficial and deep digital flexor tendons, ligaments, cut both branches of the arterial blood supply, and nerves. My experience with injuries like this are that the chances of reattaching the vascular supply and nerve supply and reattaching the tendons and ligaments is almost zero. Even if there has been a 10% chance of us being successful to recover him (from surgery) ... but with the nature of the injury, that wasn't going to happen," said Allen sadly. "Karen would have done anything for that pony."'
