hahah, this photo just cracks me up so much.

Saturday, Emily Keegan's owner and my friend Chris went to the Noble Horse. After the show I got my friend Chris up on Keegan for a photo.

Isn't it cute!? LOL! He is a big boy, and Chris is probably a hair over five feet.

She needs a Friesian now, doesn't she?







Oh well, here is one more. I posted on another cateorgy but here is me and my little Friesian gelding Hylke. He's very baroque and old style but I adore him. :)

lol, she wouldn't take him for a spin after she realized her feet wouldn't even touch the irons. He's a hair under 17 hands now. 16.3 and three fourths. Something like that now. He's also very thick, mister muscles. I rode him for about twenty minutes on Saturday. It's like riding a graceful velvety elephant. LOL!

He is beautiful.. but his feet look funny to me for some reason, are they trimmed differently than a normal horses? I notice this on a lot of Friesians and was hoping you could clear it up for me?

His feet are pretty normal to me. In this photo the dirt of the riding hall is covering them up unevenly.

When I am not in my phone I will find a photo of him standing on pavement.

There is a little patch of feather on his left front he had rubbed off though.

Funny how though? As far as I know friesian feet are just like any hoof. Just bigger. Do you mean the color? Their natural lighter color alwwys cracks me up.

Maybe it is the color that throws me off...

And yeah the more I look at them the more I see that it is just the dirt. but it looked to me like they had long squarish toes... Idk, maybe I am just a little loopy...

just looks like they need trimmed and the left looks like it is worn off from pawing.
Nah, his feet are fine. He is a pampered king ip at the
noble horse.

That hair though, his trainer does think he pawed it off but a lot of it's grown back since I seen him last.


Hylke's feather is slowly growing back too. His previous owner well the girl I am Lessing him from shaved off his feather.

This is the only picture I can get to load on my iPhone but you can see his feet a little better.
