Horse of the Month for December, 2018

The Friesian Horse

In 2000 I was asked to perform an appraisal of a 10 year old Friesian stallion.
I hadn’t ever appraised a Friesian and was very impressed with this fine stallion.
He was quiet and generally very easy to work with.

After doing more research I discovered that the Friesian horse was, in fact, a wonderful horse for an amateur owner to handle. Therein is the reason the Friesian has become as popular as they are. The breed is quite typically quiet to work with and able to do so many things very well.

My focus this month is on a 60 Time World Grand National Champion with 73 Regional Championships - a Friesian stallion “SJOERD.” Early in his career at six years old, he garnered 38 Lifetime World/Grand Champion National Champion titles.

“SJOERN” is a great example of the now very popular breed, especially since the Friesian horse can do so many things willingly.

Since appraising my first Friesian many years ago, I’ve been asked to do several more, including the famous “NANNING 374.”

NAES was asked by Lloyds of London to perform a follow-up appraisal of the very expensive Friesian stallion owned by Mr. and Mrs. Kelnhofer of Hortonville, Wisconsin.
