Grey over all colors with the understanding that the horses base color must fall into one of the three categories above & not try to be hidden during registration, If a Grey Horse is being registered the base color must be listed along with the grey shade/color.
Examples using the base color Black:
Horse's Color: Grey (Black)

CAP Faux Friesians will be accepted but color will be a deciding factor in their acceptance.
Gypsian Registration Requirements
Gypsians are the product of crossbreeding Friesians to Gypsies. Horses who have a documented mixture of Friesian and Gypsy blood are eligible to be registered as Gypsian. The influence of any other breeds is not permitted.
For offspring to be eligible for Gypsian registration, the sires & dams of Friesian, Gypsy & Gypsian breeding must be registered with a credible registry.
So long as the above criteria is maintained, registered Gypsians may produce registered offspring by being bred to Gypsian, Friesian & Gypsy lines, providing those lines can be documented, & are registered by an established registry that is recognized by the SFHS.
Horses who do not qualify for Gypsian registration may still qualify for Friesian Sport Horse registration, if they have 25%, or more, documented Friesian blood. It is strongly suggested that Gypsy stallions be put to Friesian mares, but offspring from the mating of Gypsy mares put to Friesian stallions can also be registered.
Georgian Grande Registration Requirements
The horse seeking registration must be the Produce of an SFHS registered Sire and Dam
Foundation Stock Registration
In order to register a Horse as a Georgian Grande foundation breeding stock, the bloodlines must be a blend of the Saddlebred with Friesian, Clydesdale, Belgian, Percheron, Shire, Irish Draught, Drum Horses, Gypsy Horses, Spotted Draft Horses.
The percentage of saddlebred can be up to 75% but never less than 25%. Many times people ask SFHR if they can register a horse that is part Arab, TB, Morgan,etc. The answer to that question is NO; The horse must be a blend of one or more of the above mentioned draft breeds & saddlebred. No other combination will be accepted. The "light" horse in the pedigree must be Saddlebred & Saddlebred only.
Other Saddlebred/Draft Crosses must go through a Breeding Approval before being accepted as an acceptable cross breeding for the Georgian Grande.
Further more the Friesian is underlined in bold & italic not because it's the only cross accepted but because it's the most common cross for the Georgian Grande.
