Frederik is a Friesian stallion with a breathtakingly luxurious mane
“Highly acclaimed Friesian Stallion, SPECTACULAR, JAW-DROPPING.”
“WATCH AND BE CAPTIVATED FRIESIAN STALLION FREDERIK THE GREAT.”
Or simply, “WORLD FAMOUS FRIESIAN STALLION.”
These are the search results that pop up when you search YouTube for Frederik the Great, colloquially known as “the world’s most handsome horse.” And while those are from his official channel —from which we can infer that his social media manager is A) enthusiastic and B) not a primarily English speaker — Facebookers across the land are equally enthralled with Frederik.
Almost 35,000 people like Frederik’s page, which is basically just pictures of him and apparently some of his poetry.
And you have to admit that that there is one damn fine lookin’ horse. Frederik, 15, is indeed named the 18th century Prussian monarch and resides at the Pinnacle Friesians stud farm located in the Ozark Mountains. His beauty has resulted in offers from Hollywood, but he’s apparently too busy living the stud life to commit to the strenuous schedule of Hollywood filming.
His Facebook and YouTube are currently going through a spurt of popularity, but they’ve been around for a while. If you don’t mind getting strangely jealous of a horse’s hair and reading the occasionally odd comment like, “When I die I want to be cremated, put in a pretty little vial necklace and hang around the neck of a beautiful horse like Frederick for a few days, so I can say I rode with the wind,” check up on his accounts for a daily dose of horse beauty.
It’s not weird unless you make it weird.
