These horses were originally bred as "war horses" in the days of knights and armor. As armor 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?http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/Y5XJbSqwriM?rel=0
Hey Moon J:)
I was justthinking about you! I was going to (finally)get back to you about Huna – and here you are – you want to know another wildsynchronicity – well I think it is – I’m Friesian!
No kidding –at least on my dad’s side though Anglo Saxons in general might have some ofthat blood – the Friesians went over to Kent (Southern England).
I won’t goon – though I could – but just to say – the Friesians were the one people (theywere actually a group of people) never conquered by Romans. FREE. In the blood. Probably explainswhy Hitler couldn’t take England haha – that Friesian blood – won’t submit.
Ironically,I went through the tortures of the damned to choose a name here – picked Freesiabecause it’s a flower that I figured related to nothing in my life (though I dothink it’s pretty) – and then after choosing it I realized –shoot Fressia – Freesian–it’s what I am – and Free is what the Friesians always were; liked and believed in – Freedom.
Go figure –you can’t escape what you know deep down inside.
I will getto that Huna response – wonderful video – loved the horses and loved the music.
BTWFriesland goes all the way up the coast – past Germany and Denmark – and somepeople think the Friesians were the original Atlanteans. Did they have horses in Atlantis – I don’tknow – but they would have been blessed to have these!
Again –wonderful video!
Freesia(n) J Free :)
BTW again - I typed this note in MSWord then copied over - seems you can get more smileys that way - I loves my smileys though I hear they are bad internet protocal - :p to that! Hope y'all are having a good day - I am now. Thanks!
This video is just wonderful. I wanted a relative to see it who is not a member on Shirley's, so I copied your post to FB. I hope you don't mind. Meridith is a real horse person and will love this so much! Thanks for posting. Love, C.
Hi Freesia! (So sorry, I didn't get back here, sooner)!
