Nature is chock-full of majestic things—from marvelous mountain ranges to picturesque deep sea views to stunning starry night skyscapes. But, face it, none of it compares to the majesty you’re about to witness.
Meet Frederik the Great, a majestic Friesian horse from the Ozarks in the Central US, considered by many the most handsome stud in the world. Named after the historical 18th century Prussian monarch, Frederik has swayed the hearts of many with his breathtaking curly mane and pitch black coat.
The now 19-year-old stallion first rose to stardom back in 2016 when people began sharing photos of him. Bored Panda already covered his majesty when this was happening. Since then, Frederik’s fan base has grown significantly, with over 97,000 followers on his Facebook page.
Frederik's owner Stacy Nazario, with whom Bored Panda got in touch, explained that his character fits his noble looks well, saying that he is sweet and very gentle. And, to top it all off, he is extremely photogenic, so Bored Panda invites you to check out some of his best photos below.
"Frederik's huge personality and stunning looks captivated audiences worldwide giving him the title World's Most Handsome Horse", explained Nazario, "His big personality in shows and public is noticed immediately, he always announces his presence by a loud whinny when he enters a show arena, letting audiences know 'Elvis is in the building'."
She continued: "He loves to show off. Outside of his breathtaking beauty, Frederik is a gentle giant, he loves being surrounded by people and children and loves to give kisses."
We asked Nazario what a typical day looks like for Frederik. She had this to say: "A typical day of Frederik varies depending on his schedule and the season of the year. Of course, there is always lots of love, snacks, grooming and exercise. Frederik loves his fans and continues to maintain a very busy social life and social media."
As it is with many horses, Friesians also require a lot of care and attention: "Friesians in general take a lot of care. Summer can be a challenge as they are black and they can get overheated. Although, Frederik has fans and misters all over his stable, where he spends a lot of time when hot. Grooming and keeping his beautiful thick mane and tail requires a lot of extra time, but it's worth it."
That it truly is, as a good number of commenters are saying that Frederik's majestic hair is something to die for.
Lastly, we asked Nazario about Frederik's favorite snacks and meals: "Frederik has a great diet of organic vitamins, minerals, dried fruit, vegetables, and bermuda hay. His favorite snack—all natural horse cookies."
