the friesian society actually have a rule against cross breeding with friesians because at one point the friesian breed was close to becoming wiped out as there are so few pure friesians left, which is how you get odd traits slipping through every now and again. And im actually guessing that it may be friesian x Andalusian cross with an appy which is how the colour gene has slipped through. If he was half friesian the genes would be too dominant for the leopard colourings.

He is a very fancy looking guy and does all sorts of tricks and dressage also I believe. He carries the grey gene. May produce grey offspring. I saw pictures of him as a baby and he was nearly black, so he will likely continue to fade. His color will not last forever, unfortunately!
I knew I had seen him at the Midwest Horse Fair! He is as beautiful as the picture portrays. He has been there more than once if i'm not mistaken.

The genes for Appaloosa spotting are totally separate from the gene that makes a horse black. How dominant Friesian genetics are has nothing to do with wether a horse is spotted or not. Spotting (such as leopard markings in Appaloosa and Knabstrup horses, most commonly known) is caused by the Leopard complex gene, usually denoted as Lp - A horse either has a dominant allele of this gene or they don't.

This particular horse is out of a Friesian-Appaloosa mare that IS spotted simply because she managed to get a Leopard Complex gene through the family tree. And then he got lucky enough to get HER same gene passed down

That IS Mystic Warrior I have followed him his entire life, his owner is my FB friend. His dam was 1/2 friesian 1/2 appy...sire full friesian. He also has a grey gene that is why his spots are fading.

My new guy

Yes, the Lp gene is simply that tricky if you take the gamble. I did so with a bay based few-spot leopard stallion with my Friesian mare and got a rabicano bay colt this spring. He is the sweetest thing and will make a lovely dressage horse. He's for sale...anyone????? If he doesn't sell, I will still be proud to own such a nice horse. He will be gelded in a few months.

There has been a lot of talk about Mystic warrior lately and someone posted a link to this thread. Mystic was on the cover of a magazine and it mistakenly said he was a purebred. Which of course confused many people. Friesians are only allowed to be black within the FPS registry. Sometimes a chestnut will pop up or even rarer, a grey. A long time ago Friesians were almost extinct and some outbreeding occured leading to an odd gene here and there.

Love love love the Friesian crosses! I always used to want a purebred until I spent some time with them and they are just too heavy for me and the kind of trail riding I do. But I am crazy about the Friesian crosses and have seen so many wonderful examples. Here's Dragon, my guy, Friesian/Saddlebred cross.
