Where is the Friesian in my Friesian cross??

First a disclaimer. I love Chrome and adore him just the way he is. This post is for fun and does not mean I'm dissatisfied with Chrome in any way. :)

Where is the Friesian in my Friesian cross?? This colt acts all Arabian lol!

His Arabian characteristics are showing through more and more every day.

I've read that it can take a while for the Friesian characteristics to show because Friesians are slower to mature. So hopefully as he gets older and fills out he'll look a little bit more Friesian. :)

Regardless he's a gorgeous young horse in my very biased opinion. :D

I'm just happy his other half is Arabian, because it's another breed I love.

My adorable, playful little colt.

The pictures are a bit blurry because it was getting late and the light was low, but I really like how this one turned out.

I also like this last picture. I wish it wasn't blurry because it would have been an amazing shot, but I still couldn't delete it. :)


  1. Beautiful! And I love the last picture too. Abstract. :)

  2. It seems that our lives sometimes run parallel. I was wondering where the Arab was in my Morab. Out of the blue, his breeder sends me an email, saying how much he reminded her of his Arab grandsire. She sent me pictures, yesterday, and sure enough, I could see it, too. He resembles him in his proportions, his kind eye and overall way of expressing himself.

    So, I'm sure the Friesian is there--but you have to admit how wonderful Arabs are, too!

  3. He is all Chrome and that's what counts, right? I bet once he is no longer a lanky teenager he will look more like one of those friesian horses.


  4. He's fantastic, and I'm sure he'll change loads more as he matures and you'll have some great photos to document that change :)

  5. Funny, to me, he looks like the other Arab/Friesian crosses I have seen, a little bit of both.
