oh i forgot one thing the Frisian Horses of today descended from a crossbreed with Spanish Horses During the 16th and 17th centuries, when the Netherlands were shortly linked with Spain, there was less demand for heavy war horses as battle arms changed, Andalusian blood was added, lightening its weight and thereby rendering it more suitable (in terms of less food intake and waste output) for work as a more urban carriage horse. Friesians were also used by riding schools in France and Spain for high-school dressage, and they remain popular today for their gentle temperaments and proud appearance ,so your ancestors Beatriz gave Brutal Looking Warhorses a little Elegance ....
