draft cross

  1. Horse Health
    Puzzle of a liftime, I suppose. So I come here to see if anyone has seen/knows this/has suggestions! I've owned my mare for four years, give or take, but I've been her only rider for 6 years. Man, time goes fast. Anyway, since she's had bloodworms (or red worms, I think it's in the UK) and she...

    Hey there!, Meet my boy named Cake (his brother in the background is Pie). Since I got him for free, I didn't get any papers with him. However I was told he is a draft cross. I am curious on what type of draft mix he is as the previous owner didn't know and the person before just told her he was...

    Hey guys! I just got a Garrano/Creme Draft/Percheron mix and was wondering how big you guys think he will get?? His mama was the Garrano at 14.3 and we don't know how big his dad was because we have never seen him (or the owners before) they did blood test him and it came out creme draft and...

    Since I think Navigator is such a photogenic boy, I've decided to start a thread to share some of his pictures. :) I'm constantly uploading things of him to Facebook, and I'm sure at this point some people have probably blocked me just so they don't have to have Navigator pictures filling up...
  5. Horse Breeding
    What are your thoughts on Cross - Breeding? I dont mean taking a welsh pony and breeding it to a clydesdale. I mean horses that are more close like a 15hh quarter horse to a 16hh percheron. Why wouldn't you or why would you? Have you seen any messes? or have you seen positives. Has the mare ever...

She is super sweet, had 30 days training a few months ago before the owner had to concentrate on family stuff so we have a lot to do! She just turned 6 end of july nothing really fazes this girl, she hauled the 4 hours home like a...

    I have a Shire x Paint named Kodi or Kodachrome XD I did eventing and now just like to have fun. We still jump and stuff but work more on our dressage and ground work. He is such a sweetheart and I love him so much! I've had him for 5 years :] He is 11 years old and wasn't broke until he was 6...

    Hello all, I have been looking for a haflinger, draft cross, or gypsy vanner for sale. Price ranging tops 5000 but the cheaper the better ;) Now I know gypsy vanners are pricey, so I would be willing to get a foal which might be cheaper or an untrained mare/geld/stallion. For a haflinger or...

    Charlie is a Belgian cross who I ride as a pleasure mount on the trails and roads, as well I use him for Field Hunting. He is 7 years old, 17.3 HH. Wonderful personality. I think he is very well put together, but then I am not terribly objective. Would love to hear others opinions.

    Ok everyone, show me your sport horses. And for the record I know a sport horse ISNT a breed ok...just a type. Just wanted to get that out in the open lol! Anywho, here is a thread for all those who just simply want to show off their sport horse. If there are any questions to what a sport horse...

    Hello all Draft Cross people out there! My perch cross is starting to do some jumping now and I'd like to get him some open front boots. I tried my supposed one size fit all, horse size ones on him and not a chance! The velcro comes no where near to closing and they're too tight on his big...

    We just purchased a Friesian/Percheron cross and at 16.1 hands and 1700lbs she dwarfs my little quarter horse. The problem is both our saddles fit him perfectly and nothing we own even comes close to fitting her. So I have a few questions about saddles for draft crosses. First, what type of...

    Hi Everyone! I have attempted to scroll backwards through these threads and while there were various other articles of interest, I didn't find one regarding this topic... Towards the end of 2010, I had intentions on lightly starting Cerra in the spring. Then, on Christmas Day we discovered...

    I have a 4 year old Percheron/TB cross that I have owned for a little over a year. He was broke in September, after spending 11 months doing ground work with him. He is a sweet dispositioned animal, but has recently become more stubborn about being forward. I want him to move forward willingly...
