The place he's from is a big sport horse breeding farm, they have I think 7 or 8, maybe more babies and mares for sale. I think maybe even one stallion. All ridiculously overpriced.

The height could be right. I am 5'2" and this paint gelding was 16hands.

meh, all fresians look so the same to me, I don't really think they're so great anymore, they have steep shoulders and I don't personally like their movement. This one is downhill too. I drool at shiny, stand out/ different horses that you don't see everyday, ones with big pretty brown eyes. Hescute though, but there's horses at the barn that make my jaw drop everytime I see them move. I still rather my brown eyed girl rena though ;)

I agree with SR, Anabel, and such. No drooling from me either. Since I've joined this forum, I've decided I'm not a big Freisian fan, and I'd much rather have a flashy horse. Like my Paint. =]

I don't really like black horses. Too hard to keep black and clean.

For that price I could get me a good reining gelding or barrel racing horse that actually has some brains and isn't a complete wacko (and considering the 6 that one has, he is a wack).

I personally love black horse...specially mine. And what do you mean when you say black horses are hard to keep clean

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.

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???

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.
I totally, completely agree with all the above posts. I'm at all impressed.

If he was 4... maybe. But I think he's ok. 12,000 isn't that much from a nice farm in FL. Trust me. I tried a horse that was way overweight and bit everything in site and he was going for 150,000, non-negotionable! Just because he was a lipazan. These days, to someone who DOESNT know horses, they can get anyone to pay anything.

Now, I don't think a 6 is that bad for a temperment. My mare would probably be a 6, but you just have to know how to handle the horse. I can handle her fine, but she probably is a 6. It's all about knowing how the hrose thinks.
