Black ~ Bay ~ Chestnut ~ White/Gray ~ Appaloosa
Name: Unknown / "Fritz"
Description: Dark brown stallion. Dark body (nearly black) with lighter
brown accent shading. Mane and tail are black, extra long, and crimped. Hooves are brownish.
Notes: Fully billed as black Friesian, but is too brown to read well as black. Closer to darkest bay or badly sunfaded black.
Add'l Notes: This was a UK-only release. The name "Fritz" comes from some European retailers who offered him. It has not
been confirmed as his official name.
Photo Notes: This MIP photo is pretty lame! Can you provide a better photo
of the Friesian?
Bay - Black Derivative
Description: Blackish/dark bay stallion. Body is very dark brown with darker shading. Mane and tail are black. Hooves are peach/pinkish.
Markings: Snip marking - small and pink on muzzle. No true foot marks, but all
four legs are blended white (to odd effect on a bay this dark).
Notes: An odd color. Not quite bay (he lacks black point shading) and not quite chestnut (his hair is black), but typical of the strange offerings in the 1999 set.
