I just wanted to say thanks for all the critiques on the "young friesian". I just got back from the clinic with the former FPS judge and it was a blast... He said my horse was at the extreme end of the sport horse type friesian and had wonderful confirmation. There were a few "unfriesian" things about my horse. He has a long back and a straight neck. He is also very refined legs and hooves. But the way he is built, the judge thinks he would make a great dressage sport horse. Everyone was shocked at how tall he was at 2 years old(about 16 1 hands). I'm almost inspired to give dressage a try If nothing else it was fun to see how excited my boy was in the arena. He really put on a show walking around like
"I'm the man!"
Well, my first horse show was a lot of fun. I can see how so many people get hooked on it.
Here are some recent pics of my boy from just last week. He is 2 yrs and 3months.
