I love Friesians. I love black & white paints. And every once in awhile my excitement over this "breed" is rekindled. There's two recognized, really: Barock Pintos and Friesian Pintos (Difference in registry...much like purebreds, German or Dutch). I respect how the registry is quite specific like the traditional Friesian registries.

My favourite US stallion
I've also seen some very nice painted Friesians via a Spotted Draft cross. Like the stallion Orca <-- check out link, he's stunning! Another of my horses!
