Welcome all! This page page is in the process of being revised and re-written to provide you with a more accurate and comprehensive view of the history of the Friesian breed. While this is under construction, I reccomend you head on over to the Historic Notes page, where there is a translated excerpt from the history chapter of "Het Friesch Paard" by Petra van den Heuvel, translated by Japke Zonneveld. Another wonderful, and very comprehensive resource is the Friesian history and timeline located on the Friesian Horse Association of North America's website (look under the "About Friesians" menu header). Thanks for your patience, and if you have any suggestions or input, let me know by e-mailing me at:
