There’s nothing I like more than posting pictures of my Friesian horse, Maximus. I bought him in August 2004 and we’ve been together ever since. He was born in 2000 and lived in the Netherlands until he flew to Sonoma, California, to Black Sterling Friesians Farm where I found him.


Weighing 1,425 pounds, he’s not a draft horse but people always think he’s a Clydesdale. However Clydesdales weigh between 1,700 to 2,000 pounds.


One of these days I’ll have someone take a picture of me riding him.

    Patti – Maximus is a beauty. I’ve clocked a good number of hours riding but never a horse as large as Maximus. I cannot imagine how the power of his magnificent body must feel even walking let alone when you are in a dead heat run.
