I have heard that caspian stallions can be handled by kids. Not that I'd suggest it!... Is it true? Also from info I've got on this breed, it sounds like a perfect child's pony. Apparently theres only approx 1,500 caspians in the world. Is that true? If so, Its a real pity that such a wonderful pony is SO endangered. -Annie

The above given information is not 100% true. I don't have any doubt that Francesca Kelly and Raghuvendra Singh are trying to promulgate and promote, but we know this breed from 1973 and we are keeping them like Marwari. This breed was made for war's so they are hot blood, but they are very friendly horses. They enjoy riding and they love to travel long distance so people call them an endurance horse. They are very good jumpers also, but due to the hot mind, a rider needs a lot of patience to train them for jumping or dressage. But they are very intelligent horses, so they always try to use they own mind during time of schooling.

    Best way to keep your horse black is keep in during the day and turn out during the night.. another alternative is putting on a fly sheet which is light ( won't get too hot etc ). Wash down sweat areas if weather permitting or a quick rinse.. as sweat also lightens the coat. Hope this helps.

    Many owners revert to keeping their Friesians in during the day and only turn out at night. Some feed some types of supplements that are supposed to keep the color black. But if you truly love your new
    Friesian
    love him for the horse he is and not what you want him to do for your ego. Let him run and play in the light and avoid over feeding and over supplementing this breed. The most striking coats are seen in the Friesians that the owners have allowed to move freely with companions and plenty of space. When the winter sun comes he will return to his lovely color.

    It is the sun which causes the coat to turn red, so you can help to keep it black by them wearing a fly sheet with sun protection built in. I hope this helps.

    You have to keep them in during the day and only let them graze at night. Sun during the summer months are a black horse's enemy. Also use shampoos that are designed for black horses. Hope this helps.

    Hello, I have owned Friesians all my life and never have I had anything but black.
    Keep them rugged in winter and summer also (Obviously a lighter rug) shade in the sun and they bleach easy. Once wet rub down with a towel to get most of the wet off. Sun and wet is the problem of changing the coat colour! Hope I helped.

    He is getting Sunbleached.
    Put a uv-protection sheet on him and he should go back to black in a little bit. =D

    Some friesians are jet black naturally, others fade during the summer. If it's that important to you, be sure to buy one that won't fade. The majority do, however, and who cares? It's the health of your horse that matters most. Besides, the judges don't care about fading, so it won't score against you at the keurings.

We have a 6 month old Percheron mix filly. We want to train her to pull a cart. Her sire is part of a team that pulls a carriage at parades and rodeos.

I started at age one with my father holding my ankle and have loved Shetlands and then horses for my 83 years. Our ponies were black with white markings, and I never saw other colors until today near El Paso, Texas: two of the sweetest little bay ponies with flaxen tails!
