Horse Breed Spotlight

Today as I said in the last Breed Spotlight I will be talking about the….. Friesian!

Friesian is pronounced as free·zhn, and they are one of my favorite breeds of horse. They are absolutely gorgeous!

How I Came To Like/Know About This Breed

Again, like I said in the last spotlight, I watched a YouTube video on the 8 most beautiful horse breeds in the world. Friesians were the first on the list!

History

They originated in the province of Friesland in northern Netherlands, dating back all the way to 500 B.C., when the Friesian people settled along the cost of the North Sea. The Friesian horse descends from the Equus robustus. During the 16th and 17th centuries, but probably also earlier, Arabian blood was introduced. This has given them their graceful movement and features. The Friesian horse has been kept free from influence of the English Thoroughbred. During the last two centuries it has been bred pure. Breeding horses and dealing in them was very important for the Friesians. The monks in the many monasteries in Friesland before the reformation did a lot of horse breeding.
During the Middle Ages, they were in high demand as war horses, as they were big and able to carry a soldier in armor.

The breed was totally lost in North America due to crossbreeding, but Tom Hannon of Canton, Ohio reintroduced the horse to North America in 1974.

With the help of the Friesian Studbook Friesian horses have been imported into Western Germany, Scotland and South Africa.

Uses

As I said earlier, they were uses long ago by knights, but not really anymore. Today, they are used for many things like riding for pleasure and in competition, dressage, trail riding, and pulling carriages. They have not been bred for jumping, but some people do enjoy jumping them.

Facts

  • Height: 14.2 to 17 hands high, which is an incredible range!
  • Color: They are black most of the time.
    • In very rare situations, some are chestnut. Those that are chestnut are known as Fire Friesians. There are also those with white markings on their body which is a sign that it is not a purebred.
  • Weight: 1,200-1,400 pounds
  • Temperament: They have a calm and steady personality. They are loyal, willing, placid and cheerful. Very people oriented and highly intelligent with an uncanny ability to retain knowledge.
  • They only live around 16 years.
  • They use a special carriage that is made just for them, its called a Friesian Sjees.
  • They almost became extinct quite a few times.
  • They are used in movies all the time.
  • They are quite expensive.

Video Game Recommendations | Collab With Raegan From Raegan’s Full Mind

Hello! Today I did a collab with Raegan from Raegan’s Full Mind. Here is the link to her blog: https://raegansfullmind.wordpress.com/. We have given our favorite video games to play, and we hope you enjoy them too!

  • World of Warcraft- This game is an online mmp (massive multiplayer) game. You do have to pay for it, and there is two versions, the retail version and the classic version. I play the classic version with my dad. You have to level up your character, which can be any of these (pictures below): There are a few different goals in the game, you can join a guild and level up to raid with your guild, and work on getting on the world guild leaderboard. You can also just go it alone and level up to be strong and have fun.

    • Minecraft– You build with blocks. What’s your favorite thing to do on Minecraft? Do you play in creative or survival?
    • Roblox– Roblox has thousands of games on it. And it’s free to make an account and start playing! I like to play a bunch of different games, but I have my own game and group that keeps me pretty busy.

    Raegan’s Game Recommendations

    • Asphalt 9– If you like racing games you will probably love this game. Pretty much you just race, in you choice of car, against other people (your friends, computer, or other real players).
    • Moomoo.io– This is my favorite online game. You collect resources (stone, wood, apples, and gold) then you choose your weapons and fight other player and join teams to fight against other teams. Now the only thing about this game is that there are hackers (don’t hack not cool), which makes the server crash (sometimes not all the time), and some of them are hard to kill, but its still a fun game and would totally recommend playing this game.
    • Paper.io– This game is a ton of fun. The goal to get most of the map, and destroy everyone else. I prefer team game mode, because it is easier to win. SO defiantly give this game a try.
    • Hole.io– In this game you are a hole and you have to try to swallow everything and the things that you swallow are points. The more things you swallow the bigger you get. The goal is to try to get the most points. Defiantly recommend trying this game its a lot of fun.

    Hope you enjoyed! Have you played any of these games before? If you have, let me know! And tell me if you try any new ones!

    Georgia’s 6-month Photoshoot!

    June 6th (last Sunday) was Georgia’s 6-month birthday, and for it I have taken a few simple pictures to celebrate! She has gotten so big, she weighs more than Ginger and is about her size! So, on to the photos!

    She really is the most ridiculous dog ever. She does so many weird things! She snores, digs holes and lays in them, plays with flower pots, and opens our back door! She is also a pig when it comes to food!

    Well, I hope you enjoyed! Which one is your favorite?
