Re: arab/percheron crosses

The one I saw was a conformation disaster, but then again, no idea of what
the Arab looked like....

Some Percherons seem to be really high in the croup and
goose-rumped...........this would not make a good riding animal, I think.

On the other hand, when my sister and I were teenagers, we had a dun
Percheron/Tb cross.  She was put together really well, but now that I think
of it........was really clumsy.

To cross a fine-boned hot blood like an Arab with a big cold blood might be
too extreme?
