Re: Re: arab/percheron crosses

Good Evening all,
Way back in the late 60's and early 70's my employer, Bonita Fitch started a
breed of her own called the Thorcheron.  Using a Percheron stallion with a
thoroughbred mare we got a very elegant heavier boned horse that excelled in
dressage, 5 of the 7 that I started going onto GrandPrix level.  Of course
we did not use any of the american bred Percherons, but a Canadian one with
true French breeding!  They are truly magnificent and the foundation
stallion of the Thorcherons was a 17 hand big boy that was very nimble and
could jump a 4 foot jump with very little effort!
