more information on fresians

This is a beautiful Fresian horse. These are beautiful horses. They are always black. With no markings at all. They have a beautiful curly, long mane and tail. They have long fetlock hair growing on the bottom of their feet. They are very kind and gentle especially to children. Their forelock (the long hair between their ears) is often covering their eyes.
The history of Fresians:

A long time ago, Fresians were once used as war horses. They were great for knights riding out into battle. The knights needed strong, fast horses to be able to ride during battle. Fresians were great! They were beautiful and very powerful. The knights were very glad to have such wonderful horses. Over time, Fresians were no longer used as Knights' horses. They became popular parade horses and are great in dressage, and make great showing horses. Many Fresians are from Holland, and are flown on airplanes and ships to America.
