A most realistic non-real unicorn:
What do you get when you take the majestic conformation of the Friesian, and add to it a bit of substance and a dominant-white coat? A breed that has the vibes of a unicorn even though it lacks the horn.
Friesian White Horses are good all-arounders and in rare cases are even gaited. They'll jump over streams, climb hills, and will keep going for a decent amount of time. If you're looking for a unicorn-like horse to explore Horse Isle with, then the Friesian White Horse might be the perfect horse for you.
The Friesian White Horse is a cross between a Friesian and an American White Horse. Note that Friesian White Horses always have a long mane, meaning that you must use only long-maned American White Horses as breeding stock.
Because the conformation of the Friesian White Horse is closer to that of the Friesian, Friesian White Horses can be crossed with Friesians to refine their conformation further and get more feathering into them. They cannot be crossed with American White Horses, though.
When crossing Friesian White Horses with each other, keep in mind that they must have feathering, preferably heavy. Foals that lack the feathering gene are banned from registration. To avoid this, make sure that at least one of the Friesian White Horse parents is homozygous for feather (Feather FF).
Still, it's NOT a Friesian:
Although this fictional breed has "Friesian" in its name, this horse is not a Friesian. It's simply a mixture of American White Horse -- hence the 'White' in the name -- with a Friesian -- hence the 'Friesian' in the name. This naming is similar to that of the Friesian Sporthorse, which is not a Friesian but merely a sport horse with lots of Friesian blood.
The Friesian White Horse was also named this way because it always comes in white (hence the 'White') and its conformation is similar (but not identical) to that of a Friesian (hence the 'Friesian'). Still, this horse is not a Friesian, just like the British Appaloosa is not an Appaloosa (despite its name) but merely has an 'appaloosa' coat.
As the name suggests, the conformation of the Friesian White Horse is closer to that of the Friesian than to the American White Horse, and yet it is not identical.
The head has a straight profile, large eyes, and upright ears that can be slightly curved inside. The neck is muscular, arched, and held up high. The withers are smooth and connect to a short back. The croup is rounded, the legs are thick, and the body is broad.
The mane and tail are always long, and their hair is usually wavy but can also grow straight. The legs always have feathering which ranges from medium to thick, although in rare cases it can be lighter.
