A Friesian horse is originally a Dutch breed. Typically known for their jet black color and long mane and tail. Beautiful horses, and you don't see them that often. Fairly expensive to buy one, usually between $10,000 and $40,000.
There's a family from Valle de Juarez who owns several of these horses, and they show them in the United States. Their property is on a hill overlooking the nearby town and Barb and Sal took a group of us up there yesterday.
The group of us enjoying the view.
The house on the property has a large cactus garden, and a fantastic patio with a beautiful view!

Do you remember last year at this time when Barb and Sal adopted a scruffy old burro?
This is what a year of tender loving care will do!! Ha ha...
This is Ruben showing off Zared.
What a beautiful guy. Not you Ruben! The horse...!
Zared is a gorgeous horse!
By the time we got back, we only had a short time before we were scheduled to go out for dinner with Barb and Sal and just about everyone else who are here at the campground. We've actually lost a few people, one couple left yesterday morning to head back because of a family issue back home, and another two couples have left their rigs here while they went to Mexico City for Christmas. But there's still a large group here and we all wanted to help Barb and Sal celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary! So we went into Mazamitla to the El Troje restaurant. We've been there twice before and have always had a good meal.
Barb and Sal...happy 40th anniversary!

Looks like a pretty reserved crew in the picture above, doesn't it? See what happens when you add a couple of drinks, some good food, and some Mexican music...
