"The Friesian Horse descends from an ancient bloodline that is thought to stretch all the way back to the ice age. The breed developed as a workhorse but became popular as a warhorse in the Middle Ages. Today the Friesian Horse is a popular and well-loved family horse with a great personality." - Star Stable Online

- The Friesian is one of the few draft breeds in SSO that can have leg wraps equipped.
- The Friesian gets it's name from the province of Friesland (also known as Frisia) in the Netherlands, where the breed originated.
- Friesians have extremely strict breed regulations and as such, they do not come in any other colour except black with minor exceptions for markings (such as a small star on the forehead, but this is undesirable and actively discouraged form being bred into lines). Any other colors can only be found in Friesian Sport Horses, Friesian crosses and part-breeds.
- In some extremely rare instances, chestnuts can be registered into American registries (provided lineage can be traced back to a qualified stallion) though this is undesirable, is actively discouraged from being bred into pure lines, and is usually a result of heavy inbreeding due to such a small gene pool.
- Friesians were the first horses to be given a new model and new animations in SSO.
