Frisian Stallion (13792)
Frisians were named after their home, the Dutch Friesland, and are one of the oldest horse breeds in Europe.
From the cool, northern Friesland comes a horse that is as noble as the fiery Andalusian. In fact, the Friesian is a cross between the Dutch cold-blooded and the purebred Spanish horses. The horse likes to keep its head proud and high. It also lifts its knees particularly high during its sweeping movements, which looks extremely elegant. Therefore, it is especially popular as a dressage horse. Friesians are bred as black horses, but the foals are always brown at birth. Their fur turns black only in the course of the years.
They have a characteristic black colored coat, a magnificent mane and a pretty tail. Another feature of Frisians is the long hair on their legs. Although the conformation of the breed resembles that of a light draught horse, Frisians are graceful and nimble for their size.
