The Friesian horse is a very old and distinguished breed. The ancestors of the modern Friesians were used in medieval times to carry knights to battle.  Because of their color and striking appearance, Friesian horses are a popular breed in movies and television, particularly in historic and fantasy dramas. They are viewed as calm in the face of the activity associated with filmmaking, but also elegant on-camera.

The Great Dane, also known as the German Mastiff or Deutsche Dogge, is a breed of dog from Germany. The Great Dane descends from hunting dogs known from the Middle Ages and is one of the largest breeds in the world. The Great Dane's large and imposing appearance is opposite to its friendly nature. They are known for seeking physical affection with their owners, and the breed is often referred to as a "gentle giant".
