A little about us
We are Dutch Friesian Breeders of the highest quality located just minutes away
from the pristine emerald green foothills of beautiful Mt. Hood National Forest, in
Our interest in the breed started when we attended The Friesian Horse
Extravaganza in the spring of 2000. In years past, we have owned many different
breeds of horses, but never did we dare to dream we'd own one of natures truly
most beautiful creatures. That experience left a permanent impression on us and
we were never the same.
Our Breeding Philosophy
Although we are not a large scale breeding farm or import consortium, we will be
offering a few quality purebred Friesian foals for sale every year registered with
FPS & FHANA.
When choosing a stallion, the most important factor we consider is inbreeding
coefficient. The FPS, & FHANA recommend a breeding outcome with a coefficient
of under 5 percent, we look for under 3. Next we look at all desirable aesthetics
such as overall confirmation, well balanced portions in length, height, and muscle
structure and overall confirmation. After that, there is what I call the "Hair Gene".
Stallions usually have a more generous amount of mane, tail, and feathering
compared to the mares, so we look for one that will put some hair on the foals.
After we have made our selections, we then compare prior years service statistics.
Such as; number of mares services, percentage of foals born, and how many of
those foals were first, second, and third premiums.
