Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

I kinda like him but think he is a bit too plane in his head and a bit long in his back.

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

For some reason I have a hunch his back is not really all that long. I'd like to see a confo shot. *pouts*

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

He's not conformationally perfect of course not but as I said I like him which is unusual for me as I just don't do Friesian crosses - at the end of the day if he were black I wouldn't give him a second glance.... :oops: ....so that says it all doesn't it !!!! :lol:

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

I think what I like is I can see the friesian influence. I've seen so many crosses that seem to throw more to the other cross then the friesian.

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

~Yes dilutes - that is exactly what I like about him, he is sturdy and not some pathetic cross breed type but I wouldn't use him on any mare of mine......would stick him in my pasture and just watch him ! :D

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

I am not a lover of Friesians in the first place, so I am afraid I am never going to like a cross ibecauseit is a cross!!!
I don't think they are a breed that crosses well, like QH's I think they are better off purebred.
Arabs and TBs and Welsh all cross out well, but some breeds just do not!!

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

I love Friesian and agree that they don't cross well hence my first comments...not seen too many QH crosses so can't comment.

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

Which QH crosses are you referring to Rabbit? I've seen some very nice QH crosses, but I guess they do get crossed with dumb things that I'm simply unaware of. I mean, there are so many TWH and that sort of horse around here, I'm sure someone near me has crossed some off with a QH, which would be a stupid idea, but I've seen TB x QH, Arab x QH, QH x ponies, that seemed to be just fine. I mean, Jazz is sort of a QH x TB. Her sire was paint, which is pretty much the same thing. I know she's a BYB baby, but I think she turned out ok (luckily, lol).

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

I met this QH cross while in NZ and he is even more gorgeous in person *drool* You can't say that isn't beautiful horse. He also throws some amazing babies.

Re: You know I love my Baroque breeds

I like the above stallion :D He's my type of quarter horse x tb. I own one and he is similar in type to this boy (eg doesn't throw a lot to the quarter horse, a nice balance between the two).
