Well, to produce a Drum Horse, it should be a horse of heavy, draft type and with feather. Using a Friesian, would not likely produce the body type or feather desired. Most do not really consider Friesians, a true feathered breed. Also, most with top quality Friesians, do not breed them to other breeds, Rookie.

Oh yes PunksTank, in the UK for the last several years, it has been the fashion to breed smaller and smaller, 'mini' Gypsies. This by breeding to Shetlands and Minis. And of course, there are many who do such stupid things here too.

Did the mare live?? Good God I can only see a picture in my mind with a miniature mare dragging a foal thats bigger than her in her tummy!!

I'd actually like to see that.

I have no idea,i'm guessing not as mare & baby seemed ok.That mini Andi was born several years ago & she herself is now a broodmare.I'm guessing she AI the mare as stud was trained to collect. I met the lady years ago & saw her one stallion {sire of the baby}. She has done some different crosses with her Andi's ,just thought the mini & the curly were well.....different

There is a non-gated standardbred x quarter horse cross at my barn. She is an absolute brat! She looks OK excepts her head, her nickname is mule and her attitude matches.

I thought about leasing a TB/Fjord He was very odd looking, 16.2 but with all of the Fjord characteristics. I decided not to because it was on-farm and really far away.
