    I have to know what you guys think..

    Okay so I've seen this guys add a number of times while searching through equinehits.com and every time I have to stop and look one more time. He's already sold and far too expensive for anything I could afford anyway but his coloring is just gorgeous! What do you guys think of him?

    Wow. He is absolutely gorgeous. ****, if only I had the space and money for another horse and he wasn't sold yet. Lol. Good eye.

    I don't really see anything too special about him. He is cute though. I like his bum. I wouldn't pay 6500 for him though.

    I honestly don't like him.
    And that's surprising, because I generally really, really like the friesian sporthorses.
    First of all, I HATE the cross. It automatically lowers his value just because of breed biaseness. But if you wanted to compete in english divisions, people would automatically see paint and nothing else.
    Second of all, I don't believe that this boy is able to be registered, because his dam is not an approved cross for the friesian sport horse society (I could be wrong about that) but that lowers his price tremendously. I looked up his ****, and she is nothing special at all. In fact, I would guess that they bred her strictly for color and absolutely nothing else. The stallion is gorgeous, but has done absolutely nothing. I believe he was awarded premium as a foal at his keuring and that's the whole story. When I look at a foal, I'd want his parents to at least have done SOMETHING
    Like Spastic_Dove, I don't see anything special about him at all. I think you'd be paying for color.

    Paying for colour or paying for "friesian"

    I suppose just by looks then (which is what I was going on LOL) he's stunning. =P I really like his coloring though.

    Not looking at the price, because I couldn't afford it, I think he's gorgeous!

    While I think he is quite the stunner, I would not pay nearly that much for him.
    As skyhuntress said, he is a paint and therefore will have a hard time competing against the non-colored (solid) horses in almost any ring.
    Not only that, but Friesian movement and way of going is not typical of any of the styles you see winning in the ring. Perhaps that might change in the future, but probably not soon enough for this guy. Fads come and go.
    I do not think he is registerable, because of his dam being a paint.
    Neither parents, from what I can find, have done much in their lifetimes. Generally speaking, I think that once a Friesian stallion is allowed to cross with a non-Friesian mare, he gets "outed" from the registry for approval; Friesian breeders like to keep the breed absolutely pure. Please correct me if I am wrong, this is just my understanding.
    Having said that, if I was looking for something to just be flashy and mess around with, he's quite cute. Would I ever pay $6500 for that?? Heck no!!
    The breeders look to only produce Friesian crosses, which I find a little odd... It also looks like the foals are only eligible to be reg'd with the Friesian Sporthorse Society.

    Okay so. I was reading through the responses and well, I guess prices around here are a lot different, which may be the case because I do live in a rather wealthy area, but 6500 doesn't seem to me like it would be a lot for him. I dunno though.

    I would say it's a lot of money considering he's an unregisterable Friesian cross.
    Having said that, he's sold, so someone must have thought he was worth it!
