    "WHO in their right mind would have the nerve to show up at someone's door to haul a horse in a deathtrap???"

    This can be echoed a million times over, which only makes the warning from the OP that...

    Time to start putting minimum shipping standards into sales contracts, I HATE to say.

    Hype, glitzy marketing, and super flashy trots of new stallions make them "the flavor of the month". When one is trying to sell foals, it's all about the flashy, floating trot. Many of the proven...

    The person who posed the question was referring to Friesian x QH, not Warmblood x QH. There's a big difference. That aside, I do believe that the breeder of mention is, indeed, marketing their horses...

    The vast majority of Friesian x QH (or Paint) crosses are strictly for color, and are marketed virtually 100% of the time as "Friesian cross" rather than "QH cross". While I'm sure there are some...

    No, you don't sound like a jerk ladyj79. I'll be the first one to admit that Friesians are not the ideal dressage horses -- by far. But the fact of the matter is, many of their fans want to ride them...

    I think you're overreacting to my point. You cut off the second half of my quote. Here it is again:



    But even then, I'm sure there are people out there who would disagree and insist that, with...

    Sure, but that doesn't mean it's always a good idea to cross them to each other. A cross between a world champion TWH and a world champion Clydesdale is really not a good idea if one is breeding for...

    Yes, I apologize. I meant the AHS. I'm not "disagreeing" with anything. I'm simply stating that inspections and standards of breeding stock are a GOOD thing, and that it's in the best interest of...

    The North American sister registries of some European WB registries, in particular the GOV and AHA, are extremely discerning with their inspections of foals, mares, and stallions. Stallions must...

    Too many? That's not a justification for not holding inspections. In fact, it should have been a financial boon to the registry. Lack of any standard with which to objectively rate a horse's various...

    Oh God, please don't let this thread turn into some kind of "justification" for breeding anything to anything.

    One of the big problems of the U.S. based breed registries is that approvals and...

    At this point, "Friesian x uterus" is NOT a wise marketing strategy (And it never should have been.) I'd also like to pose the question to these breeders -- What, exactly, is your breeding goal? And...

    Well, if you're "into" that sort of thing, you may as well go full tilt and do a Friesian x Zebra. ;) If it's a colt, you could keep him intact and have the ultimate color breeder fantasy stallion....

    Thanks, Hippolyta!

    I think the best examples of controlled, well-thought-out breeding choices are done with the major European Warmblood stallion testings and approvals. To me, it's a no-brainer...

    MonterStables, do you know what the "other" half of the cross was? Without knowing who the sire and dam were, it's difficult to truly pass judgement. Of course, not all Friesian stallions should BE...
