Finally a place... I am sure some of you have seen my "Crazy Experiements" I would like to introduce King Kong The newest Allstar a full 2 stars + in all categories... My next cross project will be one purely for comedy - and thats breeding 1 horse with 16 different breeds, that come together evenly.... Glad to see this forum topic - Anyone who wants advice feel free to PM me.
Some of the kiddos:
This guy was a ton of fun... I wanted to see what would happen if I trained stamina on incredibly low health.
Interesting spin on the Hano x IH cross. The Shetland enhances jumping to the same degree, but doesn't kill dressage, and does damage the stamina some. IH x Arabian is no longer that great (imo) because the stamina ends up too high compared to dressage/jumping. Shetland x IH is a neat little alternative if you want to do higher level XC comps but still have a Xbred
Bred to be a galloper. Could be verrrry interesting.

An official thread for crossbreeding discussion? Woohoo! I'm so excited!
How many breeds have we crossbreeders gotten all-stars out of? I've personally bred Friesians and Standardbreds, but I've also seen Paints and Hanos. There are rumors of all-star Appys, too... anyone have one?
I'm seeing some very nice crosses here. I breed Paint/Quarter crosses. Most of my crosses can be seen in my "other horses" farm and also in my "retired keepers" farm. I have a Paint/Quarter Cross who is #1 in gallop on the paint rankings at this time. Probably won't stay there for long but I am very proud of him having made it there. He is one bred for me by a friend of mine. His name is Vortex if any one wants to see him. I also have a Quarter/Paint cross who is # 15 on the QH elite ranking, he made it to #9 on the QH elite ranking but has sense fallen to #15. He is one I bred myself so am really proud of his accomplishments in the rankings.
I breed most of my crosses myself but there are a few that some of my friends donate to my program from time to time.

Nice cross eman12. I do not breed cross horses but I do believe there are many that top the rankings in the elites so I am all for crosses. It's nice to know there is now a place for where cross breeders can discuss just like there is for NIB breeders and RC collecters.

ooo! Nice! Now i can share my cross breeding world domination plans ! . Just kidding!
I bred a Newfie / arabian stud (now deceased) cross to a Paint / throughbred cross mare http://www.howrse.com/elevage/fiche/?id=1340706 and got a little newfie filly named Storm II after her sire. http://www.howrse.com/elevage/fiche/?id=7601526 (not sure why though ? Any clues? i thought the foal was supposed to be Arabian) then i bred her to a purebred Chinco stud and got Arshavir (Arshavir means storm ) http://www.howrse.com/elevage/fiche/?id=9119119 , i then bred her to yet Another chinco stud and got storm watch . http://www.howrse.com/elevage/fiche/?id=9486186 . I bought him a filly . im trying to find out if i can get either a Purebred (Not classified as a purebred though) Or at least 99% purebred out of a Mutt . OR Im going to get EVERY single breed into a filly to be my little friend!
another thing, i am NOT bluppng the parents! the sire of most are 100% but the mares. Nope ! Minimal training!
Wish me luck with my project!
Im also planning on doing Arab/ morgan / Shetland/ aussie crosses soon ! I think its going to be fun !
if anyone wants to help me out Let me know!
Oh happy joy!
A place to celebrate diversity!
This is my latest all star category howrse.
Shifting Lights 17 stars
I enjoy working the different combinations of howrses and seeing which ones work the best.
I sure love the surprises they like to hand out occasionally.
Thank you for having this much needed topic here
I've a few crosses I'm particularly proud of
Wonderboy - presents as a Hano, yet jump is not one of the top 3 skills He's 25% each of Hano, Arab, QH, Paint
Nabisu - Hano/Arab/Paint - presents as Hano
Haven't worked her in months, yet she is still currently ranked just outside the top 100 for Stamina and still high for Dressage
Lohari - another I haven't worked in months, yet is still currently ranked for jump. Zepharo, one of yours is only 2 places above her for that section
She's a Paint/ Arab/ Hano and presents as Paint. She's an example of taking on the dominant breed, which in this case, was the dams' breed instead of the sire's.
