    That's what we were thinking, black on black paint. He does, however, have gray in his pedigree. Guess we'll know more when he sheds out his winter coat. As for breeding him, we may because he will be registered with the Friesian Heritage Registry. We will have some dna color testing done on him.

    Thanks everyone for your comments and have a Happy New Year!

    I guess you'll have to explain what that registry is, and why he needs to be bred just because he's with that registry.

    He can only be gray if one of his parents are gray and you already said both if his parents are black. Two black parents can only produce black or chestnut.

    And in the event that you do breed him for whatever reason, please test him for frame because nobody wants a completely preventable LWO foal.

    That is, by far, the oddest excuse I've heard for breeding.
    I've had lots of stallion quality, CAHR registered geldings.

    He's a nice colt I honestly just don't like crosses and really hate them being used as breeding horses its creating more grade horses , regardless of what ever fad registry will register them.

    Foal
    I compete in combined driving and my friend, and partner, are cross breeding Friesians with paints because Friesians have the movement and look that we want but lack the endurance for the marathon portion of the event. The paints add that endurance plus we are getting the addition of color. We are not breeding willy nilly. Our program is very selective and we have buyers on a waiting list. If we find a mare is not compatible we remove her from the program. This foal that we are discussing is this mare's 3rd foal. All 3 have been exceptional colts. I was personally hoping for a match to the first colt so that I would have a driving pair. Luckily they are almost a perfect match. As for breeding him, that all depends on his conformation and his personality,which so far is exceptional. We are testing for homozygous black without the red gene. His sire died this past summer due to colic and there is a lot of interest in his offspring. I am not saying that we will breed him but I am leaving my options open.

    How much endurance do paint horses actually have? When I think of endurance horses I do not think of paints.

    I think he's just black. Nothing else going on except that he possibly carries frame. I'd certainly not breed him unless tested for it. I probably wouldn't breed him at all, since there are tons of crossbred Friesians about right now, from which you could choose. I saw him on youtube I think it was, and he was very unfriendly and bitey there. With what I saw, I'd be gelding him asap.
    JMHO of course.
