    Even if you do not like horses you will like this. They are a thing of beauty . Wait until you see these beautiful creatures. Originating in Friesland, Netherlands.

    There are some of these where I used to live, and you are right, they are impressive. Some young girls ride them around where my dog and I hiked, and it's a HUGE surprise to be walking in the bush, just looking at nothing in particular, and one of these big beasts suddenly appears, seemingly out of nowhere! For such a big horse, they move beautifully, and VERY quietly in the bush. My dog and I were both very surprised.

    They are BS foreign unnatural horses, with weighted shoes and other means to make them pick up their legs so high. Real horses do not move like that period.



    Below is a picture of a real natural American Quarter Horse doing what she loves and not manipulated to go beyond her natural instincts.

    Guy, no one is saying that quarter horses aren't a nice horse. This video is just nice to look at that's all. I didn't mean to get you all worked up. Sorry about that if you think that I meant that these horses were the best there is. Horses are just magnificent animals in there own way.

    You are correct my friend, horses are magnificent animals.... I just don't like the unnatural factions.


    Ballerinas are also nice to look at, but who walks around on their toes? I'd rather watch a lovely and talented gymnast barefooted.


    No trubs Git-R; I like natural best that's all.

    Guy, I prefer them all. Either on their toes or barefoot. They are all amazing to watch and admire. That way I am never dissapointed.
