-I assume that if I breed an Akhal-Teke (AKT) mare of mine to a purebred stallion of a different breed, it will be a 50/50 cross.
-Which breed would show up as the breed for the foal, with the percentage? AKT or the other breed? Does it depend on the breed of the sire/dam?
-If I use a horseshoe on a 50/50 cross, do I get to pick which of the breeds the foal would become 100% of, or is it based by what breed they say they are?
Thanks in advance!

So, I crossbreed a lot, its usually pot luck as to what breed you get with your cross, so you could get a Akhal-Teke dominant or you could the other breed, if you were to DHs a AT dominant, you would get a 100% AT but if it was an AT x TB and it was a TB dominant, you would then get a full TB if you DHsd it
so for example, this lass is a Fell x ISH (*CC Orinoco)
sire is ISH, dam Fell, she came out as 67% ISH (that percentage stays the same no matter what dominant side it is) and I DHed her and she's now a 100% ISH
