He is very pretty. I wonder what other breed he is besides Friesian, he really has the Friesian look without the hairy feet.

That horse is awesome but did you see the temperament? A six? You don't see many "6"s. That big guy must be a handful. The size is way off. I would say 17HH at least. Either that or the amazing handler is a tiny little person.
The price is negotiable. Offer $3000 and see what happens.

He's a nice looking animal, but what about him makes him worth $12,000.00?

Just because he's tall, black, and part Friesian doesn't mean squat, especially if he's a 6 for temperament.

He's basically just a mutt. Nothing wrong with a mutt, just don't try to tell me he's worth more because one half of him just happens to be Friesian.

If he's a crossbred, his father most likely is registered with the German Friesian Registry because he couldn't make it as an approved stallion in the Dutch Registry. The approved Dutch horses, mares and stallions, aren't allowed to breed crosses or their registrations and approvals are voided.

So, he's nothing but a temperamental Friesian cross. No thanks. Pretty is as pretty does, and I've never swooned over big, black horses anyway.

Thank you.

He's downhill, doing training level at 6?? (He should be doing at least second) and has no recognizable horses in his pedigree. They're selling him to be a riding horse? Where are the riding pictures???

[sarcasm]What do you mean? It does not count that they have photos of him with a pretty saddle on his back? Obviously that means he is an amazing riding horse. [/sarcasm]

What SR said! He is a big dark horse with an attitude. I do not see the attraction at all. And I totally agree with anebel too. If you are going to market something as a riding horse you need photos or a video of the critter being ridden.
