Alright, the owner wasn't there so we only talked to his girlfriend. Anyway today he finally answered the call and told us he'll be home tomorrow afternoon so tomorrow we go there again. She also told us he isn't really willing to put Max in a separate pasture because people will be then coming with "why does this horse have this and that and mine doesn't" and stuff like that, like people always do. This is a stupid excuse, he just doesn't want to bother with one of the horses having special needs. I mean, why aren't the other horses separate? Because their owners never asked to have them separate? Because they're not dressage horses? Because their f... owners show up once in two months to check if the horse is still alive and that's where their care ends? I'm sorry, I just knew it's gonna end up like this, I knew he's gonna withdraw from his offer, I remember their faces when I actually started talking about it being a good idea I would go for. She said we really have to talk to him so... I hope we'll be able to solve any problems he may have. The question is is he willing to solve them or simply doesn't want to be bothered? We'll see...

That doesn't surprise me unfortunately, if he doesn't care that the horses are all beat up in his care & that they're in bad shape then he wouldn't care about helping yours individually... I'd keep looking if I were you, there has to be a compassionate boarder somewhere near you. Keep us posted, good luck...

I think it has something to do with them all having more of an up-right carriage to them. There is a black morgan gelding at the farm that even when standing right next to a friesian you could not tell the difference. I drool all over the place when I see him ridden.

And I agree, argh all you friesian owners with your purdy horsies!

All though honestly I don't think I would ever really want to own one.

Short news, I've been very busy in last couple of days... Tomorrow we go for a 5 day trip with Max! None of us has ever done anything like that before, it'll be lots of great experiences for both of us. The guy that invited me said there will be around 50 horses going, I guess they have been planning it for a long time so it will be lots of fun. The only sad thing is I gotta get up in 6 hours :P Oh and today I "rode" Max for the first time ever without a saddle, only with a halter and a lead rope. It was the first time somebody has ever sat on him bareback (half a year ago I was told I should try it only if I was seriously suicidal). The manege was full as it always is (nowadays I get to ride inside once or twice a week unlees I ride after 9 pm but Max is very uncomfortable and jumpy in the dark) and I didn't want to risk he'll drag me around the fields so I got off him in some 5 minutes. Well, actually he's the one who decided he's had enough of fun He was eating grass when I climbed on him so he only realised what's happening once I was up, he nervously lifted his head and was waiting with his ears straight up what's gonna happen next. I know this pose very well, he usually does it when something unexpected happens and he's thinking whether he should get back to his latest activity or freak out and run away. So I was waiting if he'll calm down or throw me off, luckily he decided the grass was much more fun than trying to get me off his back so he got back to eating. He kept on eating for a couple more minutes while I was talking to one guy who's going tomorrow too (the owner of the appaloosa I once talked about) and then he carried me into the stable I didn't want to stop him, pull him or anything (he doesn't know any other command to stop other than "pull"), being ridden on a halter isn't really a thing he's used to so I didn't want to do something to make him feel uncomfortable which would probably make him react so I just let him take me inside. There he got a big friendly pat on his neck and I can't wait for the manege to be empty so we can practise a bit more :P

I am new to the forum, I have a 4 1/2 year old Friesian we have had since he was 5 months old. I did put up an album and can not figure out how to post pictures so they show up in the threads.

I fell in love with Friesian horses many years ago the first time I watched the movie Ladyhawk. Years and years later I still love them and funnily enough a good friend of mine who had never heard of the breed until she met me has ended up with a 3 Friesian crosses, all out of the same mare and stallion. She has two geldings and a filly. The eldest of the 3 is called Sako and he has thrown Friesian through and through, if you know anything about Friesians, you can't mistake him. He will be in the new Warner Brothers movie The Hobbit which will be in production here in NZ very soon.

His two younger siblings (Nike - gelding, Renska - filly) have both picked up their mothers bay colouring and white points. They are finer and more athletic than their brother Sako but you cant mistake their upright carriage! All three of them are beautiful horses with a great owner.

I have decided that when the time is right I will be putting a Friesian over my draft x mare. As much as I love Friesians I really ummed and ahhed about this decision because my girl is special and a rare breed in her own right. But their are no more Suffolk Punch horses in NZ so while SP would be my first choice (just to help the breed) it can not be. So I then thought about all the things that I love about my horse and what breed would enhance these attributes and found I couldn't look past the Friesian. One day in the not to distant future I shall have a Friesian x for people to ohh and ahh over!

I am in love with one Friesian.... his name is Eragon. You can see his vidoe on youtube.... if you can give me the money to buy him, I will love you forever.

He's stunning!! But there's one things I can't stand... why do people cut friesian's tails, manes and stuff? This guy is absolutely gorgeous but his short and evenly cut tail makes me cringe. I mean, if you mind the hair, why do you have a friesian in the first place?
