what would the result be of this cross - a bay TB mare with brilliant breeding (out of great dane who was at the National Stud), put to a very nice GREY andalusian stallion?

Fast powerful lovely paces - sounds fab

I thought that - heers a piccy of my TB mare
and heres her daddy -
Despite being relaticely evil at first, she's really coming round, and if she turns out to be a sweet talented mare - fingers crossed - I'm considering breeding from her when shes older. She didn;t have the attititude for racing i was told - so definately has the speed and strength, just 'lazy' - not always a bad attribute in a horse me thinks.

She looks like daddys girl to me, those lovely long legs. Hope you take her to an andulucian and if you do please please post a piccy of the foal lol

Wow! I want that first horse
15th Dec 2005, 12:39 PM
aw there so pretty! They don't look all teeny either like thoroughbreds - they look solid. They seem to have a lot of presence about them!

Wow is that a beautiful horse!
I have been wondering about breeding my Section D mare to a Spanish horse. Obviously i would get a much stockier horse but has anyone ever seen this cross or any natives crossed with Spanish horses?

this is what a welsh cob x Andulsian looks like
17th Dec 2005, 09:30 AM
wow! gorgeous! I really am liking these andulusians :D

Thanks for the photo - thats made my mind up i think - i'll tell her she's got a date in the spring!
My Welsh mare is liver chestnut too, what colour was the stallion? I did look at the genetic things on colours because i don't really like greys (sorry grey lovers) as i thought grey was a dominant colour? There is a spanish stallion near here who is black - i was thinking of using him.

iv got another picture of a welsh/andalusian
18th Dec 2005, 07:53 AM
So if I crossed my Bay TB witha Grey andalusian, would I get a grey? I love greys - sorry grey haters :D
18th Dec 2005, 03:41 PM
erm im not sure to be honest i dont really know if there is anyway of telling. is there??
28th Dec 2005, 08:44 PM
Dunno, anyone have any idea on horsey genetics - it confuses me A LOT
28th Dec 2005, 09:25 PM
yes i'm pretty sure if you cross a bay with a grey you always get a grey... unless the grey had a non-grey parent in which case you have a one in four chance of a non-grey foal.
The grey gene masks the other genes the horse has so the grey parent may have a brown/black/chestnut gene but we only see the grey, so you'll have to ask the owners. Its like that blue eye/blonde hair thing in people except that with us brown hair and eyes masks the blue/blonde genes. Did that confuse it even more?
I have been trying to work this out as i am going to breed a spanish stallion to my chestnut mare and don't want a grey foal, i have found a bay stallion (they are less common because the greys are dominant).

wow not too complicated then!!! that has made it easier in my eyes though!! thanks!!!
28th Dec 2005, 09:54 PM
so basically, if my bay mare, was put to a grey andalusian, with 2 grey parents, then chances are, the foal would be grey?
28th Dec 2005, 09:56 PM
yer sounds like it !!??

More sturdy than a TB and a good weight carrier, however TBs and Andys are both scatty breeds so choose your stud carefully in regards to temprement crossing the wrong horses and you could end up with a very scatty animal.
