    I'll trust the woolly sheep horse cross the most....as long as we stay with the flock.

    The fish and seal crosses are out unless I have scuba gear.

    That long-legged thing, (camel/horse hybrid?) well, I think I've actually seen a few of those on CL.

    The winged horse scares me because I have trouble enough controlling my horse on the ground. Just imagine what a barnsour winged horse could brush you off on!

    The bug crosses are just icky.

    The dog crosses would make for a friendly partner, but we'd have to stop at every tree and he'd be very distracted by the squirrel/horse cross.

    You have to admit the seal-horse has a very sweet expression on his/her face. That would be kind of a hippocampus, right?

    The pegasus and the sheep horse are cool. I would hate to have to shear the sheep horse; though it might be nice for riding bareback in cold weather. The seahorse was pretty cool too, but most of those were just... creepy.

    Scary!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    I think they did a good job matching the transplanted heads to the bodies. Like the pigeon. The horse has that pigeon like expression. LOL

    I like the horsedog -best of both worlds; a draft horse crossed with a viszla. I'd say I like the Pegasus, but in my old age I like being closer to the ground when I fall. As for the sheephorse-Fella looks like that in the winter so....
