Whoa! A champagne Friesian?

I had no idea Friesians could be champagne! I think he is kind of pretty even though I don't really like Friesians

He's a Friesian Sport Horse, so not 100% Friesian. Friesians are only black and rarely chestnut. It does not say what he's crossed with though.

I don't understand their genetic logic though.
"When bred to bay or black mares you will be a 55% chance of a champagne!"
No, he has a 50% chance of passing on champagne, regardless of the mare's color.

Holy wow! That is amazing!! I want him. Friesians aren't my all time favorite but I sure do love their manes.

Haha...missed the sporthorse part. He looks all Friesian! Doesnt "sporthorse" generally mean TB cross?

I still think he would look better in black.

On that first pic, I get the impression he has a very narrow neck and a tiny throat latch... Unusual for friesian, no? Even an Xbreed... Correct me if I am wrong or if it's just the angle ...
I am far from an expert and have little to no experience when it comes to conformation and breeding, but I am not convinced by the colour alone.
Hrmm... I guess I am just a purist when it comes to the black pearls ;) I want them full or not at all ;) ...

He is 1/4 American Saddlebred. His dam is saddlebred/friesian, who is a pinto champagne. ASBs come in champagne, so that is where that came from :)

*hangs head in shame* I love him. But then again I love horses. All kinds, shapes, breeds and yes, even the fuglies.
