Looking For A Horse

My trainer has asked me to look for a horse for him. But what he wants is just super hard to find. He wants a Arabian draft cross. Something under 2 years. Around $2,000 and under. Color, and gender do not matter. He also wants the horse to be in AZ. I have done a lot of looking around and can't find anything. We did have plans to breed one of are mares but she has not come back into heat after she had a false pregnancy. So maybe you know of one

If he is a "trainer", he should look for himself...kind of silly he wants a student to look for him. Also, for that criteria-he'll be looking high and low lol

a draft arab cross? Can't say i've ever seen that combo before. I'd be very hesitant to try that combo in a breeding to begin with...... heavy draft and light arab mix could go horribly awry in the foal conformation wise.

A friend had that cross. The horse has the huge body of the Percheron and the small arab head. Need I say more?

Sorry for commenting but an Arab draft cross to me would be not something I would even try, but I truly would like to see the outcome. Why this cross?

Just to let you know he owns 3 horses with the draft/ Arab cross. Great horses. They turn out kind off like a warmblood. Tall and great for pulling and holding weight. We also know someone with a gypsy arab cross.

You have to know how to breed. We have done lots of crosses with this combo. Arab stallion to a draft mare. You just need to know what you are looking for in both horses. A lot of people go and breed any old arab to any old draft. You can't do that. We also have a ffiesian/ arab cross. He is such a good boy and so well built.

I am also a trainer. I am just the computer tec. Person. He's not the best with computers and I know how to find things when I need them.
