Please tellme what you think of my Clydie X Colt :D

Hi everyone!

Please give me your opinion on the 3 month old Clydesdale X Colt I just bought. (He's not weaned yet so don't pick him up until he's 6 months) just wanted to know what you all think there should be 3 pics (if I posted right) 2 newborn and 1 around 3 months..

Foals are very hard to critique, but as far as they go he looks nicely put together.

Nothing jumps out that wouldn't probably change as he grows. Only things I notice is that he looks like he'll be long in the back and his hindquarters are a little insubstantial. Rather nice looking legs so far, too.

He's too young to tell - I've had full clydes and now I have a clyde/tb cross. Because your baby is a cross, its going to be a bit of a crap shoot until he's much older. Have you dealt with clyde crosses before?

Thanks. I knew it would be too hard to tell but I haven't had a clydie x before so was after some opinions on him. I'm waiting on some newer pictures of him but he is still only young.. Ozzys Mum - he's my first Clydie x got any tips for me?

Well then - congrats and enjoy the waiting game :) I say that because unfortunately with a draft/light mix you won't know what you get till the getting is over :) Most pure breeds or even some mixed breeds by the time they are about 2 or 3 you have a good idea of how they are going to end up. But with a clyde X - you won't know until they are done growing both up and out. There are months you will think he is taking after more the light horse side, and then suddenly the upward growth will stop and the outward growth will continue.

A close friend of mine bought a half/half clyde/tb mix, and looking at him you would think he's closer to 3/4 clyde and 1/4 tb, but if you look at my half/half clyde/tb, if you don't look at the size of his feet or his white bling, you wouldn't suspect clyde in there at all.

Many of my clyde friends and those that also have mixes, say if you want something more refined then the dam needs to be the heavier of the two horses, if you have a sire that is the clyde - then they say the baby will end up being a heavier set horse.

It will be interesting for you, its like a new Christmas present each and every month. Take lots of photos. I look back now on my full clyde's baby pictures and think - oh my god what the hell did I see in that. But to see him in his mid life glory he is absolutely stunning.

What are you hoping for in the end and what are you wanting to eventually use him for?

His sire is a 15.3hh 4 rising 5yo Clydie (Mr Bojangles) you can google him he's black and white (they think he has gypsy cob in him) and his dam is a 16hh clydie x. I'm hoping he'll be more clydie like than anything and I just want to use him for general riding and trails etc.

Googles not giving me anything as far as a clydie x (which if they think he has gypsy in him he is) stallion named Mr Bojangles. There is a colt foal by the black and white clydie x stallion Linlea Tonto called Mr Bojangles...

This is his sire. Sorry not very good pictures.

He is definitely not pure clydie! Do you have any pictures of your boy's dam?
    02-12-2013, 03:24 AM
No sorry only the ones with his mum behind him as a foal. And when seeing them all in person. They are a Clydie X stud. His sire is very stocky with feathers etc. I'd be happy with that.
