    She wasn't referring to how tall they actually are, she was referring to the (incorrect) measurements given. There's no such thing as 14.5 hands.

    Gee, my guts are just spilling out of all the holes the monkey is poking into "my theory"... http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ies/sleepy.gif

    And hitchinmygetalong---Don't know where you've been but everyone knows how much trouble the monkey likes to cause and how nasty the monkey likes to be.

    Anyway, what x said.

    Hotblood + Coldblood != Warmblood

    What's more, you know even less about TASHR's breeding program. !<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Considering that I've visited that registry's site about 5 times in the past year, and have seen 5 different breeding 'goals' and 'standards', not to mention 5 different sets of 'approved' stallions, I'm not surprised CG is a bit confused when it comes to your registry. Frankly, so am I :P

    Seraph, obviously not "everyone" thinks I am nasty.

    Delyth and Hitch, thank you for seeing the situation clearly. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif Some people will always have delusions of grandeur.

    I do kind of like zebras. I wonder what happened to that one Judy Richter had a few years ago....

    Kerby !

    You are TOO TOO TOO funny ! &lt;giggle&gt;

    I'll bet you have as much snow as we do too - I am going for a tromp in the powdery fields this afternoon if it gets near -10C !

    I always find it interesting (read - humorous!) that these experts in "European Warmblood Breeding" write a lot but never seem to say much ... even if you ONLY consider the overwhelming success (backed up by show records over more than a few generations now) of these (originally) European-bred beasties that can speak for themselves !

    No, the zebra was only my example.

    Seraph thinks that no matter what the breed is, as long as there is some European WB or TB in it, if you claim you are breeding for the Olympic disciplines, you can call your offspring warmbloods.

    So I assumed according to her argument that if I established a breeding program of zebras, infused with TB, I could call the foals warmbloods, so long as I assure my customers that I am breeding with the Olympics as an eventual goal.

    http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif Yup, my new goal is to breed zorses for the highest levels of dressage, combined training, and jumpers and to be in the Olympics.

    All zorses will be left au naturel, not even halter broken, until they are at least 4 years old, because they are of such incredible old bloodlines that they need to be preserved.

    Hitch, I will of course call my zorses warmbloods. Do you think, with the stripes, that I could register them with the color breed people, too? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif Like SHOC and IROC? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    I didn't, but I share what I know

    Among our rescues are zebra hybrids. These are a cross between a male zebra and a female horse, pony or donkey. This is the usual way to breed these hybrids, though occassionally a female zebra can be used. These striped animals are difficult to handle and are not just a horse with a striped coat. They are extremely athletic and can turn out from under a rider like no horse ever could. They are even more opinionated than a mule, and, add that to the athleticism of a wild zebra, you have an animal that is not for any but the most experienced rider or handler. Though they are outstanding in appearance, we do not recommend them as pets or as riding animals. Our zorses are rarely available for adoption.

    CG,

    I would encourage you to form your own registry; including studbook, mare book, and performance book (as I think the KWPN does this well just copy theirs).

    Now what can you call this registry ?

    ZORSE does sound forceful, powerful and able to leap tall buildings whilst piaffing in a single - albeit well-basculed - bound!

    There is a Australian guy in France who has a zorse (Stormy the Zorse!) that does reining. I saw her ridden at the Salon du Cheval at Paris in 01 I guess? He even rode her bridleless. She does all the basic dressage movements too-shoulder in, half passes, leg yields. And she jumps little cavaletti and plays football http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif Stormy does really well...but I think she is the exception to the rule when it comes to the zorse. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    BUT, I think she could definitely work in CG's olympic warmblood breeding program. You should look into that CG! Could be your next fancy european warmblood import!

    I *think* I am actually getting somewhere on these applications...but then again I may be lying to myself.
