Percheron Paint Cross
Hello all thinking of having my Percheron mare bred to a Paint stallion. Was wondering what you all think of this cross? I've found some pictures on the web, and they look like a great cross. My mare would be bred to Scenic Jet Jewel, pictured below. Does anyone own a paint/percheron cross?
My mare is seven and is 17.2 hands high, all black with a white star and lots of feathering on her feet.
He is registered ScenicJet Jewel 16.2 hands with, with APHA. He has Easy Jet and Top Deck in him along with many others. He also goes all the way back to the wonderful King stallion! He is very loud colored and has some unique markings like blue roan color on one rear leg, which you can barely see in the picture (back left leg). He has been tested for HYPP and is N/N so no worries.
What is your goal for the foal? (What are you looking to get out of this combination?)
Hello! I am kind of wondering this same thing even though I already have a spotted draft/paint cross who is a coming three year old. I bought her in winter and am still not sure what color she really is. she is also butt high at the moment and only stands 14hh at the wither while 14.2hh at the butt. Just wondering if this is still her growing? I think it's a wait and see type thing.
REALLY looking for percheron/paint opinions, information and pictures. Sorry, just don't want the thread going in a different direction. ):
Can you share pictures of your mare? Some Percherons are better suited to stock horse crosses than others.
Not the best pictures, but only ones I have right now. She has a normal quarter horse saddle on 15" just to show her size. I will taking more pictures tonight and tomorrow and will then post for you guys! Just have these to get started, sorry the second one is so small that's what I get for using my "smart" phone.
Personally, I wouldn't. With the market like it is, there are just so many grade horses going for less than it would take to fill your car with gas.
I've got a colt that is a PerchxPaint (daddy was perch, momma was paint) and I can confidently say that he is one of the ugliest horse's I've ever seen. His conformation is such that he will likely never be good for much more than just plodding around on trails...and both sire and dam have good conformation.
Truthfully, the foal outcome of a draft and stock parent is a crap shoot at best. Sometimes you get really nice foals and other times they get the worst characteristics of both breeds (I've seen draft bodies on stock horse legs :?). If it was me, I would go out and spend $25-$50 on a wealing/yearling/2 year old that was the color, pattern, temperament, and conformation that I wanted.
Also, breeding to a paint doesn't guarantee color...as can be seen by my guy.
here a pic of a perch/paint cross out of my paint stud, that was born before I bought the stud.
