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.
Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.
Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.
