In terms of general care, have you found many difference between Friesians and other breeds you take in for training?

In terms of general care a couple of things spring to mind. One, make sure your yards etc. are bullet proof. If there is a feed bin they can pull of the fence or weakness in your yards or a tie point they will expose it. They tend to get itchy easily and want to rub on anything.

Shade is critical as being black and quite solid they are prone to exposure to the sun.

More Friesians who come here have beautiful long tails but this can be a hindrance when backing up as they will stand on their tail tearing out hair. This is a great way to undo all your quality backing up work. If you don’t want to cut their tail look up how to tie a war knot.
