A white friesian horse drawing is a mesmerizing addition to any equestrian home. This beautiful horse is sure to impress guests and start conversations. It also makes a great gift for any equestrian lover. These horses are well suited for dressage, carriage driving and hippotherapy because of their calm and obedient natures. They are also commonly used for reenactments and film productions.
The Friesian breed is known for its large, black hooves and slanted shoulders. They have small, sickle-shaped ears and a very strong neck. The coat is short and shiny, with a luxuriant mane and tail. Their lustrous hair sometimes bamboozles polish people, who call them fryzjerski, which means “hairdresser horses.”
These horses are very intelligent and very easy to train. They are obedient and love to work with humans. They are a pleasure to ride or drive, and they perform well in most armature competitions. They are very proportionally built and move with grace and energy, especially in the trot and canter.
The breed was developed by monks at the many monasteries in Friesland during the 16th and 17th centuries, and has been free of foreign blood for hundreds of years. They were bred for war horses as well as carriages and riding horses. They were used in the battle of Waterloo, which was won by the British – and therefore helped to give Europe its freedom.
In modern times, a Friesian horse is usually seen at a horse show in one of the famous “sjees” – a wagon drawn by a gentleman and a lady dressed in costumes from the 1860’s. These horses are often shown in a revue-style show, where they perform dressage movements and other tricks to impress the audience.
Friesians are very popular in America because of their calm and obedient temperaments. They are very versatile and are suitable for a wide range of activities, from reenactments to movie productions. The breed is very successful in show jumping and dressage competitions, but they can also be found in hippotherapy or in military service.
It is very difficult to find a pure-bred white Friesian because genes for the color are not present in the breed’s gene pool. However, it is possible that some horses will carry the gene for white when bred with a white horse. A white foal from a Friesian sire and dam has a 1:4 chance of being born, but will not be registered in the stud book because it does not meet the breed’s standard. A purebred white Friesian can only be produced by crossing two horses that both carry the gene for the color, and are themselves white. This can only happen if the father and mother are both white, and have no other colored offspring. A white Friesian would not be eligible to enter any armature competitions because the breed standard requires that horses be black. In addition, the breed association has strict rules about the ages of the parents and their studbook status.
