Friesian/Morgan - worth the trip?

I've never been a fan of Friesians (especially not their crosses!) but I keep coming back to this guy's ad. However, he's about six hours away, and I'm in school, so it would difficult for me to see him. For the right horse, though, I'd make the trip. What do you guys think of him? I would like some opinions before I contact the owner.

Super cute ! I'd say if you keep coming back to the ad , there's gotta be a reason. Better to go see him, and possibly find yourself a nice new horse, than beat yourself up about it later.

What would you be using him for?

Honestly, I quite like him. He has his minor faults, but nothing that says "Run away screaming now!"

I'd be using him for low-level non-competitive eventing, hunter paces, trails, whatever. I also really want to get into driving as some point.

I think he'd be good for any of that, honestly.

Go see him!! LOVE LOVE LOVE him! (Not crazy about Friesians, myself, either). Don't forget your trailer. ;) Brought mine for a five-hour one-way to go see my current boy and every single time I think about/slap eyes on him, I do a little happy dance inside.

He sounds really nice and if he's done everything they say, well worth the trip :)

He sounds like an excellent prospect for all you want to do. I like his looks a lot, he is a good combination of the two breeds. I have a Morgan now & used to be neighbors w/a breeder-they are great horses! Good luck & I like his name-do you?
