Is it a pure Friesian? They are a stunning breed of horse!

formally he can't be a registered Friesian...no white at all is allowed to be a purebred..

Nevertheless a beautiful frisian horse in a great posture!

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on Friesian Connection Farm in Dorr, MI
Time
This friesian beauty was released in the pasture to run free a little after noon.
Lighting
The day was mostly overcast with a little blue sky peeking through here and there as seen in the background.
Equipment
This photo was taken with a Canon 1DX with a 70-200 f2.8 wide open and almost racked to the max.
Inspiration
I am blessed to have the owners of Friesian Connection as members of the church I pastor. I absolutely love it when they invite me to their farm to capture a few photos of their horses on the loose.
Editing
The only post processing was a little cropping and lighting editing to lift the shadows to bring out the black coat.
In my camera bag
Canon 1DX and Canon 70D; Lens:70-200, 24-70,16-35 all f2.8 IIUSM
Feedback
I love taking action shots using back focus in AI servo mode with aperture wide open for blurred background and fast shutter speed to stop the action. I keep the drive in burst mode so that I have a number of photos to select from to get the best angles of the hoofs and head while the horse in full tilt run.
