    Barock Pinto (Painted Friesians)

    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.

    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!

    They look like Vanners or drum horses .

    I wonder how Barock is pronounced (like baroque or like the president Barack)... And who started the breed.
    There are some things in life we will never find a perfect solution for, so we find the best one.

    There are several Gypsy x Friesians in the US. Here, as MBA said, they are known as Drum Horses. Drums in the US, can be Gypsies x Friesians, Shires or Clydes. Most prefer to cross with Shires or Clydes however, since many don't consider Friesians a true feathered breed.

    I've not heard of that Barock registry before, but anyone can cross breeds, start a registry and call it what they like I suppose. I heard a few months ago, of another Friesian x registry, started in the US. I just cannot remember the name of it now. Friesians seem to be 'the' horse of the moment, to cross with other breeds.

    Certainly the horses shown on that site are handsome.

    not quite the same thing but I think he is handsome. He is a Friesian/ASB/ARAB cross

    He is listed on the Friesian Heritage Horse and Sporthorse International registry website.

    They are not anything Gypsy or Drum related at all. It's normally mostly Friesian blood with some sort of Dutch Warmblood. As I said, the registry is quite specific...not just any painted Friesian X can get in. Which is what I respect about them, unlike certain other registries for crosses. These guys have been an underground favourite cross in the Friesians' home country for quite awhile now.

    No, not the same at all. He is actually a Norsk Pinto. I was looking at him a few years ago when he was For Sale. He is gorgeous! I love the mostly black paints! Norsk produces some nice painted crosses...and some not-so nice.

    What exactly does Barock mean? Are Friesian crosses now considered to be German?
