A TWH x Gypsey! Wow, I wouldn't have thought of that either. A gaited horse with TWH build and Gypsey color and hair does sound nice, but I bet it's far more likely to get the exact opposite with that cross. xD I don't suppose they have an ad somewhere for this stallion with pictures on it?

I have known two Welsh x Quarter horse crosses. They were very spunky little things! The intention was to produce a larger children's mount but they both proved to be quite the handful. They were pretty easy on the eyes, though. Nice and refined like a welsh and with flashy gaits, but with more muscle and size. One was the most amazing dappled grey for a few years when he was younger. Prettiest color I've ever seen!

There's also a Paint x Fjord yearling for sale down the road from me. She didn't turn out well I'm afraid. She looks kind of like a potato with spots O.O

My personal favorite is Saddlebred x Belgian or other heavy draft. It sounds awful, but for some reason the horses are usually amazing. I think there's even a new breed founded on this cross; the Georgian Grand or something like that. Love, love, love it!

I am here to learn! :)

Oh, oh! I didn't see that this was supposed to be the worst crosses. Sorry about that. You can just pretend that I was only talking about the potato filly, then. Haha! The welsh and saddlebred crosses were all quite nice.

Saw a Haflinger/Freisen cross once...it was about 6 or so years old but looked like an immature 2 year old. Super narrow in the chest, big belly, upright neck, weak hind end. Just a weird looking horse, super sweet in your pocket, but weird looking.

I'm not a fan of Friesian crosses. I swear, they will cross a Friesian with ANYTHING!!!!!!! I was recently introduced to a TWH being used to cross with Friesians, to get a finer, smoother gaited horse (basically a gaited Friesian with twice as much hair).

Walnut, a Georgia Grande is an American Saddlebred crossed with a draft, but with the recent kick in Friesian popularity, most GG's I have heard of are ASB x Friesians. To the point I just had to go look it up again, because I swore they were only ASB x Friesians as of late.

Worst I have ever seen though, a Tennessee Walking Horse crossed with a Percheron. He was huge, lanky, with a long, ugly head haha. Like that beautiful Walker head, nice and long, on steroids. He had the twist in the gait of the Walker too, but didn't gait or pace.

A funky cross, some how ended up being absolutely gorgeous, was a Standardbred crossed with an Appaloosa. Tiny, tiny hunter pony sized at barely 14hh, but was so bright red and spotted with tons of platinum blonde mane and tail. Really weird, but cute.

Some of the worst crosses I've seen are Friesian crosses. I dislike Friesian crosses as is on principle, but I think that a lot of people breed with them to just have a Friesian cross big fluffy half-rare pony.
Plus the registry kicks out any cross-breeders, so the fantastic stallions stay purebred to keep in the registry.. I think that says a lot about quality too.
Anyways..

Umm. Gaited/non gaited crosses sometimes confuse me as well. Draft crosses can turn out really well or poorly.

Friesian breeders cross Friesians to get a "baroque" look mixed with something freaky (ASB) to refine or (TWH) gait a Friesian. Which is nuts to me, but I don't consider Friesians to be baroque horses. It's just a super expensive cart horse to me, not a horse bred once for war.

But each breed has its party.

Have you seen the leopard spotted Friesian yet? A black and white Appaloosa with size and hair!!!!!!!! I'll find a picture.
