Does He Look Part Friesian?

A lot of people say he looks Canadian. He's actually Standardbred x Friesian. Can anyone else see it, or is it just me?

I can see the Standardbred in the length of his head and ears, but I would have not guessed Friesian. I ride a lot of Friesian Sport Horses...I would have guessed Percheron.

I can actually see why people with think he is a Canadian. He does have the same body type and shape that they would have.

What an interesting cross!

Wow, I totally wouldn't have guessed he has a Friesian in him. You can usually tell a Friesian cross very well but no, I can't see a friesian here. His head is definitelly Standardbred like and his body seems very light thought it's difficult to judge with the tack on. He definitelly got a lot from the Standardbred and very little from the Friesian. How is his movement?

But honestly I have already mistaken a few Canadian horses for Friesian crosses so if a lot of people say he looks like a Canadian horse, maybe he is more Friesiany in real life

Yeeeeeah, he was a test colt for a Friesian stallion coming into the country. I think he gets his large feet from the Friesian side :S He really moves like a Friesian, especially his trot. Here's a picture without his tack on
