Chestnut Friesian

These are not my photos, but I thought you guys might enjoy them. When you breed two horses that have a recessive chestnut gene, you have a chance of getting a "red" Friesian...which is why all FPS-approved stallions are tested for the gene nowadays. While a chestnut out of two registered horses can be registered, any future offspring of that horse cannot. I love my blacks, but the reds sure are pretty too

Wow! Very pretty!

I think I'm with the consensus thus far though...I really like the black ones!

Hey Sara! I see you've changed your opinion on Fox Friesians since your post to this topic! Glad I could help! I couldn't see the pictures in your album. Were they Chewey (Fire Magic)? Just assuming since he's most known?? Anyhoo...Here's my opinions on Fox Friesians from the same afore mentioned thread! I like 'um!

Kelsey at Friesian Crazy has some info and a picture here. Also, you can check out this link here for more pictures! The first gelding, Redfox, I like! He was actually for sale three or four years ago. I mostly remember him because the second picture on the website was the one used in his sale ad! He has a classic Friesian look, and that pic. shows how nice he was growing into himself!! I really wanted to buy him at the time!!!

Eh? I've never had anything against the chestnuts... *rereads her old post*

Heh, I guess I'm just not a very emotional writer:P

No, these are not pictures of Chewy: I don't know zip about the horse in the photos, but I'm guessing he/she is a 3 year old from the level of development (and I'm leaning towards "she").

Maybe this link will work for you? Some people seem to have problems with the flickr slideshows...if not, I can post them in the thread.

ps. I like that boy Redfox you posted, good looking gelding:)

No, I guess I more meant you sounded adamant about FPS stallions not being allowed to carry the gene and foals not being eligible to be registered. Which isn't true and I pointed that out to in that thread. Now you say otherwise! Maybe I kinda' took it as "dissin'" them. Haha

Yeah, me too...I'm a rather "blunt" writer (and in person, too sometimes, which is why I don't have any friends. ). I rely on smiley faces when I feel like I'm gonna be misunderstood!

Anyhoo...thanks for the link; it worked!! I'd say a 3 or 4 y.o. filly,too, since I don't see any "equipment". Very feminine head, as well. She's pretty...and I love flaxen manes!!

Frisians are gorgeous and black is the way to go but thats really neat seeing pictures of a Chestnut Frisian! It doesn't really look like a Frisian that color though! Thanks for sharing.
