I have heard that the first cross breeding of purebred cattle is predictible (Herford +Angus = black baldy. I just got my morgan + quarter horse mare bred to a Percheron -Quarter horse stud (he was the only one available . With this mix of breeding is it correct to say that I might get a colt that resembles any of the three breeds. smith

Or none of the above. I have a mare that is 1/2 Appaloosa and half Appendix (that is Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred in the Quarter Horse registry). She looks like a Quarter Horse with long legs but has the Appaloosa sclera plus a couple of dime sized white spots in her coat and definitely the Appaloosa temperament. Go figure! Horse genetics are hard to predict.

I have a horse that I'm not positive on the breeding but guessing mostly quarter horse with maybe some Morgan and Percheron influence. He is black and really nice to ride. Hope you get a good healthy colt.
