Strangest breed cross you've come across?
People always do a double take when they hear Buzz is a Dutch Warmbloo x Quarter Horse. It is quite odd. And no wasn't an accident LOL!

What is the strangest cross you've come across?

Well i havent seen one in real life but i dally around on google some...

Clyde x this may not seem odd BUT the one i saw was a roan an had a TB build only was much taller then the avg TB an had feathering on the legs...such an odd looking critter lol

A Foxtrotter and a Gypsy Vanner.
That poor thing was as ugly as sin. The infuriating thing is that it was done on purpose.

WOW Jessabel that's crazy!!!

Obviously I can't type - I meant to type "warmblood" not "warmbloo" *ahem*

Pidge - so the horse looked like a TB but with feathering? Haha! Weird!

At this point, Dove would probably win as she's a Mustang X Appaloosa and you just don't see a lot of Mustang crosses around here! She's built like a tank and not overly beautiful, and yet she's sound as a dollar, docile as they come and throws beautiful foals. I never would have been one to breed her, but it's crazy sometimes how even the ugly ones can still be good producers! Haha, though maybe her daughter is the craziest cross, she's Mustang/Appaloosa X Welsh!
Her daughter Justus

not too weird but Theodore O'Connor (Teddy) was a TB x (shetland pony x arabian), its a little more complex than that... Theodore Oconnor Pony

What is all over Teddy's legs? :D

Forgive my stupidity!

It's eventing grease. So they "slide" over jumps that they get too close to.

I've ridden some gorgeous TBxClyde's and I loved them. I'd have to say one of the odder corsses I've seen was a LipizzanerxArab. Arabs are so light and slim and highheaded and Lipi's are so pictureque baroqe it just seemed an odd combo to me. The filly turned out to be quite cute, but it just seemed a crazy match to attempt.
