From the cool, northern Friesland comes a horse that is as noble as the fiery Andalusian. In fact, the Friesian is a cross between the Dutch cold-blooded and the purebred Spanish horses. The horse likes to keep its head proud and high. It also lifts its knees particularly high during its sweeping movements, which looks extremely elegant. Therefore, it is especially popular as a dressage horse. Friesians are bred as black horses, but the foals are always brown at birth. Their fur turns black only in the course of the years. All of the Schleich figurines are meticulously hand-painted and equipped with the Schleich tag bearing the red S, symbol for highest quality and compliancy with all relevant safety regulations. Approximately 11.5 cm tall.
