here is some info on Friesian horses if yall r interested

History and Origin of the Breed

The Friesian Horse originated in Friesland, one of twelve provinces of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (Holland), situated in the northwest of Europe. Friesland is an old country dating to 500 B.C., when the Friesians settled along the cost of the North Sea. They were tradesmen, seafarers, farmers and horse breeders.

The Friesian horse descends from the Equus robustus. During the 16th and 17th centuries, but probably also earlier, Arabian blood was introduced, especially through Andalusian horses from Spain. This has given them the high knee-action, the small head and the craning neck. Because of his temperament the Friesian horse is considered warm blooded. The Friesian horse has been kept free from influence of the English Thoroughbred. During the last two centuries it has been bred pure. Breeding horses and dealing in them was very important for the Friesians. The monks in the many monasteries in Friesland before the reformation did a lot of horse breeding. Through the centuries the Friesian Government has made many regulations in order to safeguard good breeding. Now the Dutch Horselaw of 1939 (modified) gives rules for studbook and breeding.

From records of the past we know that the Friesian horse of old was famous. There is information from as early as 1251 and there are books in which Friesian horses were mentioned and praised from as early as the 16th century.

Armored knights of old found this horse very desirable, having the strength to carry great weight into battle and still maneuver quickly. Later, its suppleness and agility made the breed much sought after for use in riding schools in Paris and Spain during the 15th and 16th centuries. Before an elegant carriage this breed has few rivals, and throughout Europe the royal courts used them as coach horses.

An excellent trotter, the Friesian was used for racing short distances in Holland, the winners being awarded silver or golden whips. Today in Friesland there are may carriage events and often the sjees, the Friesian form of the chaise,are seen. This unique two-wheeled cart may be drawn by one or two horses, and aboard are a gentleman and a lady dressed in the traditional costumes of the 1880s. The sjees is one of the few carriages in which the driver is seated on the left; his lady occupies the right-hand side, the place of honor. Four-in-hand carriages are common and as many as ten-in-hand can be seen in front of light carriages. These large, unusual hitches used for demonstration purposes are becoming very popular. The Friesian people take great pride in the natural ability of their black horse in harness.

The well-known English writer on horses, Anthony Dent, and others are of the opinion that the Friesian horse influenced the Old English Black Horse and the Fell Pony. Dent proposes that the Norwegian Døle (Gudbrandsdal horse), which shows great likeness to the Friesian horse, must have got there from Friesland either as booty or by regular trade. The Northern Swedish horse was greatly influenced by the Norwegian Døle. Dent also suggests a Norwegian influence on the English Dale pony. In the Pyrenees in southern France there is a pony "Ariege called after Merens" (Ariege dit de Merens) that looks remarkably like a small Friesian horse. The resemblance of the types mentioned can be traced back in some cases to the influence of Friesian horses, in other cases the similar way of breeding will have caused the similarity.

As early as 1625 Friesian horses were being imported into what later would become the United States of America. The Dutch founded New Amsterdam in the region they discovered in 1609, but they had to abandon it to the English in 1664, when the name was changed to New York. Advertisements in the papers offer trotters of "Dutch" descent. These must have been Friesian horses. The able writer Jeanne Mellin proposes in her books The Morgan Horse (1961) and The Morgan Horse Handbook (1973) the possibility that this well-known American horse is of Friesian descent. The ability to trot fast, the heavy manes, the long rich tail and the fetlocks at the feet of the original forefather of this breed may be an indication.

The breed was totally lost in North America due to crossbreeding. Tom Hannon of Canton, Ohio did not reintroduce the horse to North America until 1974. By 1983 the popularity of the Friesian in America had grown enough to support a national association and a national show.

With the help of the Friesian Studbook Friesian horses have been imported into Western Germany, Scotland and South Africa (1957-58). The imports into South Africa occurred to improve the type of horse called the Flemish Horse, imported long ago from Belgium. Nowadays this type of horse is not found in Belgium anymore, except when imported from Friesland.

Bouma, 1979, and printed by Friese Pers Boekerij, b. v., in Drachten and Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.

Breed Characteristics

Friesian Horses are always black. White markings are not allowed on the body or legs. They have a long, thick, flowing mane and tail and pronounced fetlock hair. Under no circumstance is it permissible to dock the tail of a Friesian and, in fact, trimming of any hair from mane, tail or legs is frowned upon.

The Friesian Horse holds it head high and proud with an arching neck. The animated gait is natural. Selective breeding is used to achieve the active hock action and high, extended from leg action. The body is strong and deep with a sloping shoulder. The rear quarters are sloping with a somewhat low-set tail. Registered Friesian stallions must be at least 15.3 hands by the age of four and mares must be at least 14.3 hands. The mares average about 1300 lbs., more for males.

Breed Organizations

To maintain the integrity of the breed, the Friesian Horse Association of North America (FHANA) working in concert with the original parent organization, the Friesch Paarden Stamboek in the Netherlands strictly regulates the registration of the Friesian Horse. The FPS is the registry for the Friesian horse worldwide. The registry was founded in 1879 and today's Dutch registered horses are the result of over a century of rigorous evaluation and selection of breeding stock. Organizations from other countries may also register Friesian horses, but horses registered with those organizations may not have met the standards of the FPS and therefore the true Dutch Friesian registry cannot recognize the horses. The Friesian Horse Association of North America cannot recognize a horse whose papers are not issued by the Friesch Paarden Stamboek

i dont know

Its not that im shovin it down their throat i dont even hardly talk to them about it but im to the point where i want to give up i wrote this in my testimony that i was going to say and i dont think im going to do it anymore cause im not in the right time anymore but im about ready to give up and this is what i wrote its like ive been this person for so long so how am i really going to change its so hard to do this when u feel like you're in it by yourself and i know that im not in it by myself all the way but this is like the hardest thing ive ever done. Im to the point where everything is finally getting completely layed out and i say to myself this isnt what i bargained for at all to the point where i want to give up but then u stop to look around at your surroundings and u turn the other directiopn about to go back and it says if u turn this way ull give the people u dont want the satisfaction and the people that do want to see u excell are disappointed and then ur disappointed in yourself then u turn around back the other direction and look but it says hard work but victory and glory in the long run. Then u keep going in the right direction and its going good then u run into ridicules, you can't do it, people tellin u its not right. Then u start to doubt it but u still keep goin and people r getin worried cause you're slippin from their grip into somthin better then they throw the hardest one at u so maybe just maybe youll came back they say well look at her she thinks you're gettin to good for your family and all these people care about you and you're just shuvin their face in the dirt like yah yallve hepled me but i dont care when thats not even the case at all and u still try to explain to them i have to find myself and they wont listen to that they say thats an excuse and u dont care and your screamin inside i just need u to understand and again your at a stand point which way do u go its becomin a choice your family that uve never really had and still want to try to make things better or this new life that your family is not even involved in and it takes u futher away from them and it hurts because they dont even know that u care so much because they wont listen. I think thats one of my down falls is that i care so much it almost makes me feel i wish i didnt have any feelings. i havent got any sleep so mind i like this big roller coaster but im tryin even though i just told jessica im gettin to where im not believeing anymore and she said dont start to tell me that and walked away see look at that im even screwin that part up to i guess theres not doubt about it anything i do i always screw everything up and i thought this time it was different but i guess i was wrong i guess i nedd somthin to show me that im doin right really if this is normal to have these feelings .

What am i doing everybody is proud of me. I cant figure out what they're proud of. I go home and everyone hates me they look at me like im dirt and they tell me what im doin is wrong and it going to hurt me in the long run but what if they're right i know bro. Elms just preached about this last night but how do i really know its real is it really worth all this i have to go through. i fell like im losing my family and those around me well i cant really say im losing my family cause i lost them along time ago but its just makin it worse it was easier when i was doin all the bad stuff i was doin because everyone excepted me maybe not i a good way but they did and i didnt have to haer the greif and the ridicule of them. its so hard and i dont understand why it has to be like this why cant it just be easy for a while. The people who r proud of me and tell me to keep going and those are the people im not even supposed to be talking to i dont know. i wish i could make my mom understand. everything ive done is find a way to get her accteptance a all ive gotten is hatred and everyone tells me to keep going but all i can do is stop and look around its like im stuck i cant turn around and go the other way cause ill let people down and myself but if i keep going foward i move further away from my family and what im tryin to do i move closer to them. its not like im tellin them im gay or somthin like that im just tellin them that i found another way to live and what i thought was a better way to live seems harder than what it really is. im just tryin to tell them to follow and maybe somthin good will happen but all they want to did is tell me how stupid i am and all im doin is thinkin about myself and thats not it at all cause if that was the case i would just forget about them and try to make my life better for myself when i pray, most of the time i dont even pray for myself i pray for their well being and for us to draw closer together and all it seems like its doin is drifting us further apart cause i know my mom doesnt have much time left cause u can tell and i all want is a good relationship for me and her cause we've never had one and it wasnt but maybe a coulpe of weeks ago she said thats what she wanted that we've wasted to much time and just give me another chance and i have ive given her a bunch and it was like she said that stuff just to say it and it didnt mean anything at all. i feel like im just rambleing but when things come to mind like this i just write them down in hope to answer my own qustion cause ive done it before but its not happening.
