Draft crosses!!!!!!!!please post
I have never owned one but I have ridden a few and they have been quite nice.
I broke and started training a PMU baby (paint/draft).
A woman I know absolutely adores them, she recently sold her shire/tb for $45,000, he was lovely to ride. She bought her foster daughter who is my best friend a hanoverian/shire who is beautiful but HUGE and she is 5'1" so she needs to get the ground training respect thing quickly because he could just run all over her.
Of course there is the other end of it. Another friend of mine bought a shire/ tb and it's completely mental. The mare kicked my friends mother multiple times while she was trying to catch it in the paddock. The poor woman got a concussion and a severely lacerated liver and is on bed rest for 3 months. The horse was sent to Charles Wilhelm who doesn't know how much he can do to change her because she is just looney, beautiful but looney.
Generally I think it's a good cross they make good event horses. They get the athletic ability of lighter breeds and good minds and sturdiness of the draft.
Although I haven't owned a draft cross. I do have a soft spot on my heart for them.. I really like Percheron crosses and have been around a few. The few I've been around have been very mild mannered and very sweet. Your's is lovely.
I have one! Her name is Rose and she is a Friesian/Appaloosa cross, she's a year old and already 14'3h. She's so sweet and friendly and very smart and she seems to learn quickly. She's bigger and completely shed out now, I'll get some recent pictures of her soon.
I have a Perch/Paint and will probably be the best horse I ever ride!
His big ol' cute head is in my siggy!
I have a yearling Shire/pinto that is wonderful. Almost bought a Belgian/pinto but she got sold out from under me. Ended up with a Reg percheronhttp://www.horseforum.com/userpix/1567_DSCF0095_1.jpg
why did you have to enter every single word on a new line? Seriously, makes the post too long.
I have a draft cross...or rather my husband does. He was mine, but my husband decided he was his. He's a sweetheart but a horribly bumpy ride. He was a nursemare foal that we adopted and is a grey tobiano in color. I will look for a photo.
