Worst crosses you have heard of?
 
Ok so I was talking about crosses with a friend, and on my gosh.

I saw a TWH x Gypsy.

It was very interesting, he was also a stallion and he has a couple foals on the way...

I've also heard of a mule/arab/thoroughbred before.

What about anyone else?
Have any rather interesting crosses you know of?

Oops, this is the WORST crosses. My bad. lol.

I'm really curious to know what the TWH/Gypsy cross looked like. I would have NEVER thought of that one.

I'm too scared to answer, as I got my butt whooped in another thread today....but there are some (not bad) but strange ones out there! :lol:

I've got a shetland pony gypsy vanner cross at my rescue xD He's freaking adorable, but a few horrible conformation issues >.< We've just learned that his teeth don't line up, he's SO sow mouth his teeth don't even touch! He'll need to be floated at least twice a year and his foods gotta be softened. -.-'
According to the breeders, their shetland mare got loose and found a gypsy stallion, didn't know she was pregnant or who the dad was until it was too late. Luckily she birthed safely despite him being as big as her at 6 months old o.o
This is him a little more than a year:

Are you talking about Ripley?

Haha yes they'd make wonderful little ponies, he could do just about anything fast xD He loves to go! Gallops around his paddock full speed, hair pin turns - he's a ball to watch. But I really wouldn't recommend the cross, being such a big size difference and the clear conformation issues that'll make his life tough.

Aww, hes sooo cute! The story does seem a bit odd though. Whatever, shes very cute! (:

Belgian x Arabian

I love both of the breeds, but they did just not combine well.
