Romeo here is apparently a Mustang x Friesian cross... He's not that bad, but I find that combination just... bizarre.

I'm not sure how that happened.

Sorry if I'm wrong, but the past few horses posted up - the Canadian cross is my absolute favorite! The clyde cross, Fjord cross, Mustang cross - those don't look too terrible. While they're unusual mixes and not always likely to come out as nice as those examples, I wouldn't mind having a single one of them in my barn xD
I'm a huge advocate for not breeding animals that won't be likely to earn a home, but draft crosses are a new fad now and definitely have earned their place. The fjord cross, while unusual came out with some nice attributes from both breeds. There are certainly things imperfect about the mixes - but I don't see anything terrible like that poor Clyde/Dales cross xD

Hehe, I was so close to getting that Fjord cross I don't think he is bad at all, just that it was a very odd mix.

Country Woman, I love Ben! He has such a sweetness about him.

At some of these my eyes have been bulging. I agree with everyone that Friesians should not be crossed with anything. They are specific horses, that stay better as themselves.
However, in Latvia, some people decided it would be cool to take the Friesian stallion and breed him with some Latvian mares, I saw the pics of the foals, nothing dramatic, but still, foals look cute, and then comes the fugly years.
I have seen a fjord arabian cross, don't know the percentages, but he is a very cute fjord, smaller than the other one they got there, darker, and loves to run.

Whenever anyone takes a slim, small elegant breed and mixes it with drafts my head wants to emplode. Same goes with mixing large horses with ponies.
The andalusian mini - really fugly baby and why did they have to do that to its mane and tail? Especially in winter.. wth.

Most crosses that were shown here look like any crosses would.. average.. and Some sports horses I have seen, look fugly - mainly their necks and heads..
And ofc, my favourite cross is Latvian driving horse with a sports stallion -old, HN or HL. Makes a lovely horse :)

The worst looking cross I've ridden was a Halter bred Paint (upside down triangle) and Dutch warmblood. She looked like peices of each loosely duct tape together, and rode like it.
The worst Looking horse, but best I've ridden was a Standardbred/Belgian/TB x gelding. That boy could jump the moon, and was literally the smoothest ride ever. But omg he looked weird. Big feet, HUGE roman nose head, long neck and a big ole booty, with tree trunk legs. Loved him tho. Would have bought him if I could of.

I won't be letting Kit (75% Friesian, 25% Thoroughbred) see this thread! I think the right Friesian X can really work but have definitely seen some very average ones due to the 'X Friesian with anything and everything' attitude. In Australia at least they seem to be steering away from that now and some truly beautiful Friesian X's are coming up. My own personal Friesian X has worked brilliant, lovely and short coupled, moves through his whole body, multi Supreme winner and even went Top 5 with over 215 horses of all breeds at a recent breed show here. He is also doing me proud in the official dressage arena too now, he is only 4.

I think any breed or cross done properly with proper horses that compliment either could work but likewise, done badly even with 2 breeds that should cross well or even purbreds can look terrible.
