If were talking about what would dream to have Andalusian . Fully. Silver/ dappled gray, but realistically what we will have is a Frisian . I owe my wife one. And when money is right I am to make good on that promise. In the next 3-4 years or so, when were both out of school and working.
They are elegant and have a nice movement, but it is not one that is naturally good for collection. Andalusians are almost the polar opposite; built for collection and not designed to pull a cart at all. Frisians are lovely to look at and seem to have nice temperaments, this is true.
Frisians are a draft breed, meant to pull. They are elegant and have a nice movement, but it is not one that is naturally good for collection. Andalusians are almost the polar opposite; built for collection and not designed to pull a cart at all.
Frisians are lovely to look at and seem to have nice temperaments, this is true. Even though they are often classified as a light draft, Frisians were/are a riding horse.
Records show them as a very popular ridden horse hundreds of years ago by mounted knights. But a history lesson is beyond the scope of this thread :lol:.
Nature did not design the horse to carry loads on its back. But again, beyond the scope of this thread :lol:I'll go with the Frisian, because they are calm.
He has loved them forever and a long time ago before they were so popular we talked about importing a couple, even had contacts and did some legwork. Thing is Frisians wouldn't do well out here. Though they are strong, gentle, and oh so lovely if they aren't over bred and long-faced, one wouldn't and shouldn't be expected to travel 8 to 10 hours climbing our steep mountains.
I agree its lbs not miles, they were riding horses. I personally think they are being over bred, lacking the traditional elegance and finesse in an effort to saturate the breed.
Especially the flashy dappled gray ones... with the three-foot-long mane and crest neck... add on the Arabicize head. 4 y/o gelding Thor is a sweet boy who will always be an in your pocket best friend.

Good, straight movement but is not a German warm blood so don’t expect him to move like one. Easy to catch, do feet, tie, worm, float.
Active has had a solid six months under saddle and is progressing nicely. Will be very quiet in the future and has no dirt, however is a green horse and can be strong at times so only suited to a confident rider at this stage.
This is a very reluctant sale as, like I said, he is just getting to the fun stage so please don’t ask if the price is negotiable as it will only increase with education. IMPORTANT: Please do not use Internet Explorer, because it is no longer supported by Microsoft.
Andalusian, found in lots of other colors than black, including gray and bay, generally smaller than Frisians, between 15hh-15.2hh usually, sometimes larger, especially big stallions. They come in every color as a result and can vary in size and build.
One notable feature is the feathering on their lower legs. Often, they are called wild, but feral would be the proper term, as they were brought over to American and were released here.
Depending on the area, their blood differs, but there have been a lot of breeds mixed into them over the years. Andalusian's are Spanish horses and can be any solid color, so black, gray, chestnut, bay, and a Mustang is a wild horse, and they can be any color at all.
