There isn't much fluff in this book; it's packed with facts. This is the place to look for the history of the Friesian breed, foundation sires and their offspring, what to look for if you're thinking about buying a Friesian, explanations of the Dutch terms used in evaluating the breed, the "rules of Friesian ownership" implemented to perpetuate the pure breed, even examples of the forms used. I found The Friesian Horse to be a very good resource.

I could not believe there are so few books written about this magnificient breed of horse. Thanks to Laura's book I was able to get a better understanding on what this breed is about and how to go about finding a Friesian to buy. Trying to understand the pedigree line and the registration papers and so on can be a real challenge until I read this book. She does a wonderful job of breaking it down and making it all very user friendly.:)

This is an absolutely great book and reference guide on Friesian horses. Contains valuable information on owning a Friesian, especially here in the United States.
It's a Must-Have for anyone who loves this breed!

This book covers everything you need to know if you want to buy a Friesian Horse.
Although it has some pictures they are all in black and white. Only the cover is in color so if you love these horses but you have no interest in buying one right away, choose other books instead. Search for the author's name, and you might find another work she is doing with lots of pictures of Friesian horses.
For the horse buyers this book is of imperative reading. Mrs.Laura describes everything from the Friesian lineage to how these horses are awarded and thus giving an idea on what to expect both in the animal you are looking for and the deep pocket you need to have.

Laura Beeman puts it all into prospective. Her experience with the breed, and the breeding itself of this wonderful horse is priceless. Laura doesn't just encourages you to do your homework before your purchase, she also helps you through it, step by step.
This book is well written, displays beautiful photos and is a very helpful tool for anyone who likes to learn more about the Friesian horse and on what to look for before you buy your first Friesian.

with helpful informations about friesian horses. books about friesians are very few, at least this book is exhaustive: it includes the history of the breed, bloodlines, breed charatheristics, the registries, breeding and "what you should know". I give it three stars because photos are beautiful, but unfortunately in black and white.

We are just purchasing our first Friesian horse and wanted to find more info about the breed. This book really is bare bones but it did contain some info we were looking for. It is a simple paperback, inexpensive so I do believe it was worth the purchase price. It did fill us in on some of the basics.

My 13 year daughter old loves her book! Even though the pages are black and white she said it didn't matter because Friesian's are black anyways.
