Talking about horse breeds, there are hundreds of them all over the world. It is crazy how different all of them are from each other, you might even think that they are not part of the same species. They are distinguished by their body structures, facial features, skin colors, etc. Even horses who belong to countries that are really close geographically can be so different.
I mean, you can’t find many similarities between Friesians and Drafts, even that Netherlands (the origin of Friesians) and Belgium (the origin of drafts) are really close geographically. Nevertheless, some of these breeds might have some similarities that might confuse people regarding their origin, however, the majority of these breeds are easily distinguishable.
Well, some of these breeds are variations of the main breeds, maybe those are the hardest one to distinguish, however, horse people can usually make a difference between all of them. In the video below, you will be able to see two of the most popular breeds in the world. The first one is Friesian, which is popular for the dark skin color and a lot of dressage performances, while the other one belongs to a breed who became very popular due to Superbowl commercials, and I am referring to Clydesdales.
The two gorgeous horses from this video are lying on the grass and clearly, they are relaxing. Both of them are good-looking as you can see one of them is a Friesian horse and the other one is a Clydesdale horse. Without a doubt, they are having a great time together and know how to chill and get the most out of it. Suddenly, the Friesian decides to get up and wants the Clydesdale to get up along with him!
However, Clydesdale insists on napping and lying down a little bit more and maybe it is him “sturdy” body that makes him too lazy to get up. He huffs and puffs and it takes him forever to first pull one leg in front of him and then the other…and finally pushing himself up. They were actually both very lazy, but the Clydesdale seems to be a lot lazier than his Friesian friend. He definitely feels like it is the perfect day for a nap and nothing else. Please have a look at the video below and let us know what you think about this wonderful duo.
