This is a very neat thread. I have recently been lucky to make a new friend who happens to own an Andalusian stallion and mare and a Friesian stallion. When we first met she just had her Andalusians but had her eye on this Friesian stud on the east coast. She had owned a Friesian stud prior but traded him for her Andalusian stud (long story). But missed her Friesian so much she needed another and got one.
We got our new horses a week apart from one another. Me my 2 year old AQHA and her her big beautiful black stallion. He is by Anne 340 and 5 years old.
He is a real sweetheart and has the best mannerisms of any stallion I have ever met.
I also have had the pleasure of riding him and such power! A bit bouncy ALL the time lol but such a fun time. He instantly made me want one. But after much discussion with my friend, I would be better matched with a sport Friesian, so we plan to eventually breed my AQHA with him. I am still on the fence to do so but that is years from now
Awesome for those that do own them though, lucky too. They really are THE dream horse.
