Friesian stallion, Othello. He is of the original, heavy baroque type developed in the Netherlands from Middle Ages war horses and, later, Andalusian bloodlines. The Iberian influence is strong, and Friesians' heads and necks are called 'Spanish type'. Today, lighter sporty Friesians are popularly bred, but the baroque type keeps a strong following.
