There probably would be as meny if pure friesians were not so exspencive. I have seen some very nice Friesian crosses though.

I think that with many breeds it is a good thing.
If people to it to mass bred for money I don't like it but otherwise, It can be really great. Some of the best horses i've ridden / owned have been crossbred.
One of my favourite horses to ride is a Arab X perchereon X clydesdale who is amazingly bombproof [although he only turns and goes he has no brakes at all] and he looks like a percheron with a small amount of extra feathers, a thicker mane and giant arab like head with added thickness.

I've got a crossbred. he's stunning, but very highly strung! I think if its done to produce quailty then its a good thing but its people without a clue who just shove horses together in a field then, its not good. most of those people are just putting horses into a uncertain future (that so many horses have) with the current ecomonic climate.

If there's madness in my method, does that mean there's method in my madness!!

My Pinto mare is about grade as they come. She is by a blk/whi Pinto stud (unknown what breed/s he may be) and out of a appendix QH mare. The only reason I know this is because my farrier trimmed both parents and then her as a foal. There was absolutely no reasoning behind the pairing. By the time I bought her at age 3, I was her 4th owner. She was a pasture ornament and not even halter broke.

She has turned out to be an awesome trail horse and is now being trained in dressage and jumping. I was lucky she turned out as well as she has.

I did breed her to a foundation QH bred halter stud that complimented her extremly well. So far the filly that was a result of the pairing is to die for, the stud's owner is very smitten with her and she is the only grade foal out of this stud and I feel very priveleged to have bred to him. Her intended purpose is just like her mom and will not be for sale.

Grade horses have a place in the horse industry as long as those doing the breeding have a clear purpose in mind for the foal. My mare should not be here today if that was practiced more and I know for certain if I not have bought her for $100 she would have been spent off to the kill pen.
