2017 Friesian Stable Foal

2017 Friesian Stable Foal

Liefke had a baby boy this morning (6/17/17) at 2:30am, unfortunately he didn't survive. Liefke is so grief stricken, she laid down next to him and put her head on him....she doesn't want to leave his side. Very sad day here at Friesian Stable! 💔

In Memory - Edna Lee Wentland

Edna Lee Wentland, Co-founder Friesian Stable
May 13, 1940 - February 9, 2017

Our beautiful mother passed away.  We can hardly realize what life will be like without her, who was the center of everything. Her suffering (from Alzheimer’s) has ended, yet our suffering (from shattered heart) has just begun.  How do we tell you about the most important woman in our life, our hero...our Mom?  For those of you who never got to meet our Mom....She was very lovely, affectionate and unselfish.  Besides her family and close friends, she deeply loved her gardens, dogs (Dobermans) and especially our majestic Friesian horses.  She was brilliantly clever, talented and had a wonderful head for business.  Her passion for KFPS/FHANA registered Friesian horses led to the creation of Friesian Stable.  Mom’s pride of her farm, gardens and horses extended to many visitors, including people passing along the highway.  She would give tours of her perennial gardens, renovated 100+- year-old farmhouse and the finale was the custom-built horse barn full of Friesian horses.  She enjoyed sharing her treasures with everyone.  We wish you all could have met our Mom.  We love you Mom –
Becky Avalos, Leslie (Avalos) and Scott Losey, John and Carla Avalos, Jesse and Sheila Wentland Jr., four grandchildren and two great-grand- children. Survived by husband Jesse Wentland, best friend Patricia (and Alvin) Tonn, many relatives and good friends. Preceded in death by par- ents Clyde and Elsie Bristol, sister Patricia Holmes and brother Roger Bristol.

Chrytse CJF "Chrissy"

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Renowned KFPS Breeder, Darcy Miller of Crown Jewel Friesians for the exceptional opportunity to own this beautiful rare filly!

Chrytse CJF is FULL Papered/FULL Pedigree (Julius 486) filly out of Rolls Royce of Motherlines!  She’s an Oege 267 Preferent line filly (the hair man). Dam has consistently produced beautiful foals with incredible Oege/Anton manes and tails and proven winners at the North American KFPS Keurings.  Her dam is Star Mare, Liske E *2 (of 2) daughter of the famous Elbricht MODEL-DOUBLE PREFERENT PRESTANTIE MOTHER (Crown Jewel *8) the most predicated KFPS Mare in History ever sired by the legendary, Oege 267 Preferent!  Her sire is the amazing JULIUS 486!  Grand Sire is Norbert 444 Sport x Beart 411 Preferent.  Norbert was the World Champion Friesian Stallion in 2012, 2013 and 2014, making KFPS history!  The motherline is exceptional and the producer of a VERY HIGH number of approved stallions. Chrytse has a low inbreeding 1.76%, which will be a huge asset to our breeding program. The full paper is over the last 75 years, close to the inception of stam 44, and begins with Daetke M+P.  Within the motherline, Liske E’s sister gave birth to Olgert 445 that was approved a few years ago.  Olgert's 1st foal crop gave him an Approved son.  Liske's other sister, Model mare Renske, had a daughter that gave birth to Fonger 478 that was approved in 2014.  Liske’s great great grandmother, Marriannke Star Preferent gave birth to Chrytzen 246.  Chrytse's dam, Liske E Star, is already half way to Preferent herself on her first two offspring!  (Ivanke CJF Star) earned KEURING DAY CHAMPION and CHAMPION MARE. She brought the following scores for trot: Length 107, Strength 108, Balance 106 and Elasticity 107 which is a score of 8. Additionally Liske's son (Frans CJF Star) earned the STAR STALLION predicate in 2014.  The Star Stallion predicate is rare and is only awarded to stallions that are judged to be “superior” in both conformation and movement.  He is very rich in type and received an 8. Judges comments: Very good trot, lots of power, bending, space and suspension.  Chryste is out of the bloodline line of the accomplished and well known Jan van’t Ende, breeder of GENERATIONS of Breeding Day CHAMPION ELBRICHTS in the Netherlands as well as winners in sport. His mare Elbricht was the first filly out of Tiete Star, Tiete was bred by the former MAIN INSPECTOR of the KFPS, Hendrik Draaier from Twijzel.  The dam’s pedigree paired with the Julius 486 brings:

One TRIPLE Preferent Crown Jewel Mare *13 (only mare in the history of the KFPS to ever achieve this)

Two DOUBLE Preferent Crown Jewel Mares *11 and *8

Total Preferents 36 (Preferent Mares 20, Preferent Stallions 16)

Prestatie Mothers 6

Sport Predicate 11

Chrytse’s Dam grows a 4 foot long mane, so she has this in her bloodlines. (Julius 486 x Ulke 338 Sport x Oege 267 Preferent x Cobus 248 (from the rare Age 168 line).  Chrytse has been bred for health, temperament and this line has consistently excelled in sport ability.  Chrytse is guaranteed to be 100% free of Hydrocephalus (DNA gene test) and NEGATIVE for Dwarfism (DNA marker test).
