A horse named Frederik the Great has gone viral for his long, majestic hair and what many people call an extremely photogenic appearance (video below). 

Frederik, named after the Prussian monarch, is owned by the Pinnacle Friesians farm in the Ozark Mountains in the U.S., The Daily Telegraph reports. He’s now being labeled the world’s most handsome horse. 

"Frederik is considered one of the most Photographic Friesians in the world, his beautiful photographs [have] been admired by millions worldwide," his owners told The Telegraph. He was described by his owners as a "gentle giant and a gentleman," as well as a "labrador in hooves."

The stallion has reportedly been approached by film producers for several projects, and the owners have even begun offering his services for breeding.

"Frederik will contribute so many attributes to his offspring some of which would include height, performance potential, wonderful temperament, conformation, excellent gaits, smooth transitions,a great willingness to work, very strong black gene, and tons of hair!" they wrote in an advertisement.

Frederik quickly garnered a large following — with over 13,500 Facebook fans and 10,500 YouTube subscribers as of May 24.

" ... I love Frederik," one fan wrote on the stallion's Facebook page, "he knows how majestic he looks [...] but he is so wonderful. I would just love to see him and touch him."

“When I die I want to be cremated , put in a pretty little [vial] necklace and hang around the neck of a beautiful horse like Frederick for a few days,” another wrote, "so I can say I rode with the wind."
