Nice pose on the last one. You need more contrast though. Use a ref for shinyness, and start out lighter so you have somewhere to go with shadows. Refs really help with proportions and horse conformation. There's tons of stock on DA.
I think that with the first two, their legs are a bit too thick, especially at the top of the foreleg.
On the last one, its back leg, the one farthest from the viewer point, the shading's wrong, as well as the pose. It looks like it's broken it and it's about to fall. The other rear leg also needs some work; the angle, again, doesn't look quite right. Finally, the last horse's side needs some shading, because it kind of looks like it was squeezed, to make it shorter from tail to the base of its neck.
For the Friesan, the thing I noticed was again, lack of shading. On the picture's left side, I'd suggest adding a bit more shading to make the details more pronounced. Otherwise, I'd say they all look really good!
I'm just offering critique here though; I can't for the life of me draw horses well.

lol *head desk* thanks for that otho. But I kinda do the legs thick naturally, it's kinda a pain when I try draw them thinner, because sometimes it looks like their legs are a big larger than sticks and it looks weird to me.
