Friesian x Hackney?

I'm going to put the downpayment on him today

He's four years old, and from what I've seen, looks like an old-style (Baroque) Friesian with just a little white sock on the hind (he's solid black!). Loads of hair, flashy gait, and a good head on his shoulders. He is small, standing a mere 14hh, 14.2hh at the most.

But boy oh boy...beautiful!


I was wondering, has anyone else seen or owned such a cross? He obviously turned out quite well, more Friesian than anything. I'm pretty excited about being able to buy him...and the prospect of training him!

Red Man, my four year old Foxtrotter gelding is my designated gaited show horse (trail mostly). This guy is already slotted as my designated non-gaited show horse


Getting pictures today! All I have are the Craigslist pics, terrible quality.

These really don't do him justice, but the other/better ones are of a really low quality...but I'm leaving soon, so I'll return tonight with more!







Also: OH BOY I'M EXCITED!

Wait! I'll fix it....

The sire was a huge 16hh Imported Friesian (I saw his papers, he's registered!) and the dam was a Hackney.


And....I FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES!

He IS very well behaved and looks EXACTLY like a miniature Friesian, save two little socks on his hind legs and the faintest bit of a star on his head. But he has a long, thick mane, Friesian head, body, and legs. Everything!
He's only 14hh but he's got stout little legs and a nice conformation. Totally adorable little dude.

I got completely distracted by her 3 week old Friesian colt (bouncy, curious little guy), his 16hh dam, and his 16hh daddy (WHOM I GOT TO TOUCH -faints-). She even showed me her little 14hh black Morgan mare who does all sorts of tricks

I'm seriously thinking of next year buying a pure in-utero Friesian by her stud and out of her mare. She does payment plans and I'll have a job next summer. He makes such awesome babies, I need one @_@

Wait! I'll fix it....
