Possible buy, what do you think? ~ Friesian
 
OK, so I am going to go look at this Friesian this weekend. His name is Raven, he is 4 year's old and about 3/4 broke western. I'd be using him as a trail horse. He is asking 10,000$, but he said he would lower to 7,500$. I know its a lot for just a trail horse, but I can easily afford it. He is UTD on all shots and is sound. The guy said he will send me more pictures as the ones he sent me are pretty bad:

He would definitely turn some heads. Do Friesians make good trail horses? I always think of them as more of a dressage horse.

He is cute and the mare was attractive also. Mares are usually worth more money and I think both are in the same price range. They do get hot easily and do not have the capacity to go on hard rides so keep that in mind.Don't know where you live be they like cooler temps.

Unfortunately no one can give you any kind of a critique from these photos, you can't see anything other than that he's a dark horse ;)

flytobecat, they're bred as carraige horses and generally not looked upon terribly favourably as dressage horses, though some are breeding friesians that are more towards a sport horse type than your typical baroque types.

You would think for a several thousand dollar horse they could give you a little better photos than this!! Sheesh...
