"mule/arab/thoroughbred before"



Wow, a mule cross with something is incredibly rare, they are almost always sterile.

Mules are not always sterile, I thought they were, but after having a look it appears there have been quite a few, though still very rare given the numbers of mules in the world, viable, living offspring from mules.

At my barn they breed Arabs with and Irish Draught. From what I've seen, it can turn out really well or really bad. The best ones are 3/4 draught and 1/4 arab. The not so good ones are the ones with more arab in them.

I'm going to guess it was a donkey crossed with a mare that was a Arabian/thoroughbred...

He's quite eye-catching, but he's very long backed, weak loin, weak hindquarter, IMO.
