    These horses are gorgeous. They are as beautiful as the Clydesdale.

    So glad my SIL is a trainer and has shown quite a few of these beauties! They are stabled with us for months at a time! A lovely breed!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    These powerful, magnificent beasts run so gracefully as it is, it breaks my heart when they are held chin-to-chest on a check rein. A Freesian is featured in the adored Outlander book series (Jamie and Claire in North Carolina) by Diana Gabaldon and I first learned about them by googling from the mention there.

    I'm with you, Jan. These majestic animals are most beautiful when they are running free, with their proud heads held up, unbridled and galloping in their natural gait. When I see them 'performing' the only thought that comes to my mind is the extensive 'training' they are subjected to.

    Gorgeous!!... God don't make no mistakes. But curious: why do they rein them to have chin-to-chest? Doesn't look comfortable....

    We have a family friend that does metal sculptures and he did a sculpture of these horses for a farm on the east coast. This is a link for the sculpture http://www.johnlopezstudio.com/#/friesian-1 ....Well guess I don't know how to make it work so you can just click on it but John does amazing work and just recently finished a sculpture of Hugh Glass and the bear of "The Revenant" film.
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    The most gorgeous horses on this earth and I love to see them running down a field, manes and tails waving free. They are poetry in motion.

    That's part training, part natural carriage for these horses and part control. I could go into a really long explanation of the biomechanics, but let's just leave it at that.

    War Horse Video

    IMO, all breeds of horses, animals and people are beautiful. Each of us is an individual.

    To non-horse folks:

    What sets various breeds apart is the careful breeding that has produced and continues to produce the desired qualities. The Friesans are fabulous carriage horses. Their natural high step is a trademark of the breed. When you re-view the video, notice that the mares (females) with youngsters at their sides, have less hair than some of the others. The stallions have the most and longest hair, due to testosterone. Geldings (altered males) have about the same amount of mane and tail hair as the mares. There are no hair extensions or artificial colors, here! They are always black, until the sun bleaches them out to a brownish color. When they shed the old hair, the new hair grows in black and shiny.

    Beautiful horses. Thanks for the additional information. I'm going to send my granddaughter this link, she's in love with this breed.

    These sculptures are wonderful! I love looking at them closely...shovels, chains, forks, all kinds of neat things make up the whole! He is very talented!

    They are gorgeous. They were bred originally as war horses.
