Beauty ...a great name for this mare. Beauty is a FHH registered daughter of the spectacular Michelangelo P Ster..(Tsjerk 328 X Ulke 338) and out of a Friesian-Shire cross mare. Beauty has heavy bone and muscling,.. along with tons of feather and mane and tail. She stands approximately 16 hands. She also is registered with the Friesian Sporthorse Registry. Beauty was purchased last fall, already bred. She is in foal to Gerryt S.F, a son of Mintse 384, (Leffert 306 X Tsjerk 328) for May of 2019. We are expecting a super foal from that cross!
Destiny was also a purchase last fall. Destiny is a FHH registered daughter of Nemo v. Hiddum (Ulke 338 X Oege 267) and out of a black and white tobiano paint mare, Rue Rue McCue. Destiny came in foal also, being bred to Tjerk fan Bonnie View (Tsjerk X Tije 401). Destiny is an absolute sweetheart of a mare. She loves attention, and will hang her head over your shoulder just because she likes you. Destiny is the smallest of our mares, just not quite 15 hh. Her loving disposition overcomes her lack of size though. Destiny is broke to ride and drive and very willing to try new things, as well as super responsive to the slightest command.
Frosty is our only AQHA registered mare. Frosty is a Perlino, she will produce a colored foal, some shade of buckskin!! And talk about bloodlines,,Frosty can trace her pedigree to most of the great foundation Quarter horses, especially the running bred ones. Frosty is a granddaughter of PC Bronsin ( a Sun Frost son). We have traced to her pedigree to Three Bars, Depth Charge, Top Deck, Wimpy, King, Silver King, War Admiral and Native Dancer, as well as the Hancock horses and Leo and Joe Reed. She may well produce a Friesian sporthorse barrel horse!! She has a lovely floaty trot and a quite high head and neck carriage. She should produce a gorgeous foal next spring from Vorn.
Reba, my choice for queen of the farm!! Standing a full 16.3, Reba weighs almost 1700 pounds. She is very classy, and like the rest of our mares, very kind and loving. She has heavy bone and loads of mane and tail, as well as feathers. Reba's story is sort of a long one. We purchased her unregistered, and were told she was a daughter of Pieter Z and out of a Percheron mare. Upon sending in her DNA and application to the FHH, we were told that she is NOT a genetic match to Pieter Z. She does have Friesian markers, but since so many Friesian stallions are so closely related, they cannot match her to just one stallion. She matches several! Thus began the tracing of where she came from, either to get another posible sire, or to find her mother's DNA. The FHH traced her back through three previous owners..all of whom believed her to be a Pieter Z daughter. Then the trail went cold. So our beautiful Reba was unable to be registered. So instead of a 3/4 Friesian foal, her babies will only be sold as 50% Friesian. But they will be big, black and Beautiful, just like their momma! This story is EXACTLY why all of our babies will be registered and DNA verified before they leave this farm!
Maggie is our only Clydesdale cross mare. We purchased her in spring of 2018,, bred to a Gypsy Vanner stallion. Maggie stands 16 hh and weighs over 1500 lbs. She inherited the heavy bone from her Clydesdale parent, as well as tons of feathers and a heavy mane. Her last year's baby was Casper, a medicine hat colt, with two crystal blue eyes. We did not rebreed her last summer, choosing to let her have the winter off. She will be bred to Vorn this spring. We are excited to see that foal next spring!
All of our babies will be registered and DNA verified with the Friesian Heritage horse and Sport horse International Association. They will be micro- chipped with a USEF/FEI approved chip. We imprint at birth and handle our babies daily. We love to work with the foals and try to give them the best start possible in life.
