I went to a friesian inspection last spring and saw a chestnut colt. He was absolutely gorgeous! They are very unique in their looks. Makes them stand out a bit from the black you usually see.

The only problem with Friesians that aren't your basic black is that they can't be registered. I don't know why but they can't be.

Exactly Tempest! When I was at the inspection the owners just wanted to show off their chestnut colt. He couldn't be judged because of his coloring. Its a shame because he was a real stunner.

Interesting. I did not know that. I wonder why it is?

Maybe its not truely breed standard. An extra bloodline may have been thrown into the mix giving it that coloring?????? I honestly have no idea

Here is a bit of something from the Friesian Horse association website.
Q. What colors do Friesians come in?
A. The only color a studbook-registered Friesian comes in is black, however this may range from very dark brown or black-bay to true black. Many Friesians appear black bay when their coats are shedding or when they have become sun or sweat bleached. Selective breeding minimizes white markings and the only white marking allowed on a studbook-registered horse is a small star.

How do you get 3/4 of one breed and 1/4 of the other?

I want a Friesian so badly, but I'll have to be content with my half Friesian. Besides I don't have that kind of money.

I'm going to say that we're using an Arab and a Morgan(I randomly picked two breeds). You breed the Arab to the Morgan and get a baby. Then take that baby and breed it to an different Arab. Take the baby of that group and breed it to a different Arab. I think that's how you would get a 3/4 of one breed and 1/4 of the other. So complicated.

You can get a 3/4 simply by having a parent that is, for example, 1/2 Arab and 1/2 Friesian, then breeding it to a full Friesian. The result is 3/4 Friesian, 1/4 Arab.

LoL, in other words, breed a half-bred to a full bred. :)

Really beautiful pictures, regardless of the breeding.

The bottom one has mottled boy parts and dark eyes, despite is pink skin. Isn't that an appy/knab trait?
