Not pure Friesian im guessing, gorgeous though!

When I saw him, he reminded me of the spotted noriker horse

I don't normally like Friesian crosses, but I do have to say that's one stunning animal.

Reminds me of a Knabstrupper:

He reminds me of King Louis XIV's horses-- (who also look suspiciously like greying leopards to me-- particularly in the middle painting!)

I thought of a Knabstrupper too, wonder what you'd get if you crossed one of THOSE with a Fresian.

I found this post searching for more images/info of Mystic Warrior - his breeder had a Knabstrupper/Friesian cross listed also:

I'm actually surprised most people think friesians cross well and pass on their look. I think its more that people are finding these lovely stallions that crossed well but if you search for friesian crosses on dreamhorse.com etc... they just don't look very friesian-y to me.

I think it depends on the individuals being bred. Our stud passes on a distinct look but many others do not... that's why I've never cared much for cross breeding them. You have to really know what you're doing.

When I was younger we had two friesian/paint crosses and they were lovely but you wouldn't know they were from friesians.

I wonder if that's happened in any of the appy fresian crosses lol
LOL!! That's what I was thinking about too

Im really not sure where people keep getting this Appy mane thing - I know more QHs with cruddy sparse thin manes than I've ever seen Appy's with similar. Most of the Appys I've known have thick manes and tails.

But this guy is a gorgeous example of a Friesian-App cross... maybe a tad butt high, but he's gorgeous and a great mover. With a full mane and tail :p

Tried to add this link of searches to my previous post but I waited too long. They just don't represent the friesian enough for me to desire that cross if you're looking for a horse that "looks" friesian-y. And there isn't a consistent "look" they all share... some just look like thoroughbreds, some look like mustangs, some looks like warmbloods and others look like percheron crosses!
