Friesians are one of the most beautiful horse breeds in the world.
Originating from the Netherlands, Friesians are considered light draft horses. Originally used to carry knights into battle, a Friesian horse is now used for everything from pulling carriages to competing in dressage. Noted for their midnight-black coats and incredibly long manes and tails, they are dramatic and striking in appearance.
They also happen to be one of the most photogenic breeds around. The stallions, in particular, seem to know when the camera is on them and are happy to strike a pose. Whether they are running free, showing off their paces in the show ring or are getting groomed, they are truly magnificent.
Fresians' headshots beat Facebook profile pictures or Instagram model posts any day. Here are 10 of the most glamorous Friesian stallion headshots:

Friesians are a versatile breed that are equally happy as show horses as they are as trail horses. Their steady natures and classic looks make them a highly sought-after companion and pleasure horse.
Whether you are drawn to their classical appearance, strength, or think they look like something out of a fairytale, Friesians are a spectacular breed.
