  1. Ride Or Drive 1St & When To Start?

    I have a Barockpinto (paint/Friesian) 18 month old colt. Would it be better for his bones(less stress on them) to ride or drive first & what would a minimum age be? Thinking very basic light 2 wheeler if driving.
  2. Ride Or Drive 1St & When To Start?

    If I can drive him like a normal horse, I have no reason to ride him for a long time. But what's worse for him..trotting on mainly asphalt roads behind a light cart or being ridden on mainly dirt trails?
  3. Help Me Name This Colt :-)

    Hi Please give me a hand naming this colt. He's a year old, over 15hh, half Friesian half Paint with a sweet nature. Names are polled, voted down to two choices! Album: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150801821237783.475605.749597782&type=3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVB7Y7ghQGw

    Hehe, thanks. It's looking like it's gonna be "Felix D" at this stage. Here are some new pics: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150801821237783.475605.749597782&type=1
  7. Hi. I hope I'm posting this in the right place. First of all, I live in Israel, so the quality of sporthorse is not great. I found this colt & I've only seen one filly nicer in the 4 years I've been here. He is 11 months old & big. He must stand around 15hh already. His sire is a Friesian from the Netherlands but I don't have his name. A large, modern nice stallion with a fabulous temperament. His dam is a tall paint mare which could do with more length of rein & is too straight behind. Other than that, a pretty mare. However, yearlings are my blind spot for conformation. I've had foals & 2 year olds up but I've always avoided yearlings. He doesn't look like a yearling though, the 3 quarter Friesian colt in the photos with him is the same age & looks it. Any opinions & helpful photos on his eventual build, stamp etc would be much appreciated. Here is his album. The first 40 or so pics. . http://s11.photobucket.com/albums/a199/danischi24/Horses/?action=view&current=Snapshot725-02-201223-11.png The standing pics at the end do not do him justice, please don't use them for conformation judging I want to use him for riding out, driving & local shows but I will be keeping him entire (not for breeding though) as I have the facilities & experience.
  8. Opinions On 11 Month Old Colt-Pics!

    Thanks guys! Very kind of you. The dogs are just pinchers that I noticed. Yes, the Friesian pictured is his dad :-)
