Subject: difference in owning a friesian

I have had experience with several breeds, oldenburgs, thorough bred, dutch warmblood, kisberi, shire mix, hanovarian, holstein. I would say that their hair is more upkeep as it is important to keep the mane braided and in good condition. They are not much different feeding wise as others say. My 10 yr old gelding gets a little grain and alot of hay carrots and apples. He is very energetic, smart, shows off( learned spanish walk so quickly) everyone he sees he lifts his leg to show them! Knows his name and comes when called. generally friesians are more people oriented. Not spooky , doesnt bolt, has never ever bucked! But looks alot and will go around or avoid things.Not an endurance animals as friesians do not get a second wind! They should be out at nite in summer if possible and in during the day. I know 5 other friesians and they are all sweethearts and are gentle stallions. One is a grand prix dressage horse and loves to be kissed all the time and is soooo sweet. And they are different than other horses because you cant stop staring at them and you will never tire of their beauty!!!
