Freisian Horses

Friesian Horses
These horses were originally bred as "war horses" in the days of knights and armour.  As armour got heavier, bigger horses were needed and the Friesian almost became extinct. They are back and are one of the prettiest horses in stature as well as gait. What gorgeous animals!
Just watching them becomes an emotional experience.
Can you imagine what it would be like to ride one?
Their manes and tails are probably the longest of all horses.  When performing on grass, their hoofs do not kick up a divot (they land flat footed).  Watch their feet during the movie.
Creatures such as these are what makes this world so special. These horses are native to the Netherlands.  Be sure and turn your audio on.
