there is a freisan/welsh cross for sale on the dallas craigslist.
Why for the life of me any one would attempt this cross is beyond me. Shalom

How about this mare? Dam was half Percheron, half Belgian, sire was purebred Paso Fino. I love drafts, I love gaited horses, but this... this is just unfortunate.

The worst I've ever seen is an akhal teke dam clydesdale sire. It had the slender long body of the akhal teke and a wicked heavy head with huge feet. I felt so bad for the poor thing. The woman paid a ton of money to get the mare shipped over and then bred her to a poor excuse of a clydesdale. The mare wasn't all that good looking either. Tons of conformation issues all over the board with those ones. I don't think the baby lived all that long only about 10-12 years. Some crosses should never be made.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

In thinking about this topic my palomino mare was sired by a golden palomino TWH and her mother was a dark dappledquarab palomino. She wasn't gaited and her conformation was surprsingly good and she was as pretty a palomino as one could hope for with her four white stockings and blaze.

anyone who breeds and Akele teke mare or any other rare breed mare for a cross is completely clueless. That type of mare should only be bred for another purebred foal. Shalom

I honestly haven't seen more than one or two Paso crosses that were well conformed. Personally, I don't think Pasos, although a good sound breed themselves, make for good crosses.

The Akhal Teke/Clydesdale cross is a mystery...the owner must have been drunk when he/she made THAT decision...

Or the stallion could've broke through. Lol.

I would honestly like to see some pictures of these crosses. A TB/Fjord? Sounds interesting.
