    Maybe a big stocky QH is not what she wants.... I haven't read previous posts but there are Friesian lovers out there :)

    Exactly.. I am not fond of QH's. Personal Preference. There are some beautiful ones out there, I know. I just don't want one.

    Hello I am friesian daft!! He looks gorgeous but seems short in the legs :-/ is he listed as a baroque type? Rather than the sport?
    Not sure about US but in UK every friesian that is registered has a a4 paper detailing his ancestry and his reg no. If you go see him, ask to see his documents, take a pic then call the friesian association of us to try & clarify its correct.

    Have a little read on their website:
    The Friesian Horse Society, International registration for Friesian Horses in North America, including B Book and D book horses and Friesian Part-breds.

    Hope that helps!

    I believe that to be incorrect . To register them they must be microchipped . But they're not done at birth just when you need to register them

    Correct churumbeque. FPS requires it if you are going to register the horse because purebred Friesians are all very similar in color and conformation characteristics this is a very quick and easy way for accurate identification.

    And I have to add............. if you have the opportunity to get a Friesian or Friesian cross, go for it! They truly do have wonderful personalities!

    That gelding looks like a nice horse but I don't think he's a purebred. Could be wrong though.

    Without knowing the actual weight or experience or anything about this poster, it is difficult to advise.

    Pulling the info from all the threads together, you have been looking at lots of horses over a number of years, but have turned them all down.

    You are looking at Arabs, from a weedy 2 year old, to a rescue, to a 14 year old broodmare with a temperament issue.

    Or possibly a cross bred 18 hours away

    Or any of the horses here.

    My honest opinion..

    Really take stock of who you are, your size, weight, ability, what you want to do with a horse, your facilities for keeping one, then search for a horse to fill all those needs close to home.

    Don't get hung up on breeds, especially if you haven't actually handled one of that breed extensively.

    I fell in love with Haflingers, they are gorgeous, and their right ups are awesome, but I HATE riding them I found, and they are not all easy to live with. So despite having bought several, and some from huge distances, I let them go, because deep in my heart I was not happy.

    I bought an Appy, who was actually just what I needed at the time, and in 3 years he taught me a huge amount and took me to a different place. Now my heart is firmly owned by my Arabs, I won 2 pure breds and 2 part breds, and strangely enough it was the one breed that I said I would never ever own.

    Just saying, look for the right horse, their color and breed are of secondary importance.
