Even if you are not into horses, I think you will still be suitably impressed by the Friesian horse featured on this page.

The photos below show a friend of mine, Sharon, at her horse stud (Kinglsee Park) "horsing around" (huh? did I really say that?) with her award winning Friesian horse, Ollie.

Ollie, whose full name is Orlando Maurits, has been rated as being in the top 10% of all Friesians in the world - and if you see him in the flesh, I think you'll see why. As it is, the photos give you an indication of what a magnificent horse this fun loving, gentle giant is. The process of judging Fresians is called keuring, which is the Dutch word for "studbook inspections", and occurs once per year.

Also pictured below is another one of Sharon's award winning horses, Phoenix.

Please enjoy the photos, and check out the for sale section below.

Friesian History - a brief look at the breed

Friesians (Frisian is also an acceptable spelling) originated in the Netherlands province of Friesland. You may not have heard of Friesian horses, but you might have heard of Friesian cattle, and this is because often breeders of the horses also bred cattle.

Their history is reported to go back thousands of years, and may have also been where more known breeds of horses originated, such as Clydesdales, Shire Horse, etc., which is why they share certain characteristics. This was a result of the Romans using Friesians in their occupation of England.

Ancestors of the Friesians we see today carried knights into battle in medieval times. In the 16th century, the breed had an infusion of Andalusian blood, which had a significant impact on their weight and nimbleness.

They are an outstanding looking horse: beautiful black coats, long, flowing mains and long, thick tails - not to mention long silky hair on their legs, often referred to as "feathers". Impressive hardly suffices!
