  1. Horse Breeding
    I'm contemplating spending a heap of money on a Baroque Pinto just-turned-yearling filly. She is very well proportioned (not high in the butt) but only 13.2hh. She is 3/4 Friesian, 1/4 Baroque Pinto and has been on pasture mostly plus a nutrient balancer. Dam is 16:1, sire is 16.2. Her hefty...
  2. Horses for Sale
    Hey all, I've been looking around for horses for a long while, and came across a friesian/oldenburg 3yo mare/filly. She seems fine to me, but is pricey so I'd like to be sure before I make any sort of decision, I'm looking to buy a baby to break and educate. I would love some opinions on her...
  3. Horse Health
    I've just got this guy, and I absolutely love him, but the farrier pointed out something today that I hadn't previously considered as a possibility. I had spent a lot of time looking at his pasterns and debating if they were going to be a problem as they are very visibly sloped, however the vet...
  4. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I'm asking this for the future since I don't have a Friesian as of right now. Would a thick, possible Sport type Friesian (16.2 hh) require oversized or regular horse tack? Here is the link to the sale advert I was referring to-just in case I was wrong in classifying the horse's body type...
  5. Horse Breeds
    Recently, a tragedy left a family friend's friend's family in a tight spot. They have three friesian paso fino cross horses and have asked if we would like to make an offer. Does anyone have experience with this cross? It seems odd to be, wouldn't the paso fino gait contradict the extended...
  6. Horse Conformation Critique
    Elena is a 5 year old mare, 14.3hh and about 900lb. She is 50% friesian and 50% morgan. I had originally purchased her to do liberty/tackless work with and jumping (below 1.0m). I am looking for opinions on her conformation for jumping and breeding. Elena the horse Sidenote: She sustained an...
  7. Stallions and Broodmares
    I've thought about the idea of breeding my thoroughbred mare. I've always thought she has wonderful conformation and personality, and her riding her is lovely too. She has an amazing trot and a ton of energy. It would be nice to have a foal from her before she gets old and eventually passes...
  8. Jumping
    I have a new Friesian x Morgan cross, originally trained in driving, but with experience under saddle, and quite recently, introduced to jumping. What can I say? He loves it! He's green, but you should see how he perks up when he sees poles being set up. It's all I can do not to have him steer...
  9. Horse Breeds
    Hey guys i am looking at a "B Book" friesian mare, and i think it means that the stallion isnt a registered one(i think) but i would really love to have someone explain all this lingo of the friesian world to me. I come from the arabian and half arab show world, and now i am seeing words like...
  10. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    G'day there, I live in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. Kalgoorlie is 600km inland from the capital city, and is a gold mining city on the edge of the desert. Despite its desert status, it is actually very green, and we are surrounded by hundreds of kilometres of great riding bush. I have...
  11. Horse Breeding
    Has anyone bred to the Friesian Stallion Tietse 428? I was recommended his frozen semen as good quality and absolutely love his conformation and movement. I would love to see pics of your foals and hear how they are doing if you have bred to him before! I am a first time breeder and used a...
  12. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hello All, I don't know if this is the right sub-forum to post this, but the readers here seem to know a lot about paints, so figured this might be the right crowd. A friend of mine recently had a great success in learning more about a sweet gelding she rescued from an auction, I decided to do...
  13. Horse Conformation Critique

  14. Horse Health
    I have a 11 year old friesian gelding. I bought him in December and in the spring his summer coat came it. It was a little thicker and longer then the QH's at the barn. I asked my barn manager and she said it was a friesian thing adn his dad is from Holland. But the other friesian at the barn...
  15. Horse Health
    I bought a 10 year old Friesian gelding (my first horse) last December. When I bought him he had a small winter coat but my barns horses live outside so he got really furry. This winter I will probably be showing him in dressage shows from January on (USDF, and schooling). The barn manager (my...
  16. Horse Tack and Equipment
    What kind of dressage saddle do you use for your Friesian / Thoroughbred cross? Since my mare is higher backed, the saddle puts more pressure on the back, and I want to know what kind of saddle other owners of specifically Friesian Thoroughbreds use?
  17. Horses for Sale
    I was looking around online and came to this website: Friesian Horses The horses aren't very expensive for Friesians, does it look like a scam? I know there has been many, many Friesian scammers out lately and wondering if this is another. They seem unlike the others in the fact they give an...
  18. Horse Training
    Hi Ive got a Friesian that it 6 years old and is very nervous. When me and my mum first got her she was an angel and didn't do a thing wrong. Her previous owner said she had done some driving and riding before but we think it was more driving. Over the past few months she has become more and...
  19. Draft Horses
    I own a Friesian which is considered a light draft, does anyone else have a Friesian? I'm crazy about them, they're a ton of fun to ride and are very powerful movers.
