Helena has JUST ARRIVED at our Sonoma barn, and is a VERY nice, REASONABLY priced, one yr old friesian mare.

You can tell a lot about what Helena will be like as an adult mare, by taking a look at her lovely mother:

And check out Lyra's FULL pedigree above!

Mewes X Time x Ulke x Wessel

Stam Line 99----Many many top quality sport horses have come from their breeding line.

Born May 16, 2010

Motherline is Stb X Star x Model+Pref x Star+Pref x Star+Pref x Star+Pref

Helena's dam, Lyra, is a 3rd premie studbook mare with a full pedigree, who we imported pregnant with Helena!  Lyra has been sold, however her daughter, sired by the phenomenal approved stallion in europe, Mewes, IS available. Lyra is out of a Star mare by Ulke (Ylse Nienke). Ylse Nienke comes out of the multi champion Model mare Maaike Nienke H. Maaike Nienke H. became 2 times Champion of the Netherlands in Tandem driving together with her brother Gebrand who received in his Sport career, 8 Championships in total in front of the Sjees!!!!! Maaike Nienke was also very successful at the keurings. She received 10 first premies in total in her life!!!! Maaike Nienke (Lyra's grandmother) is also the mother of the Champion showdriving friesian, Andries H ( a Goffert son). The Mother of the approved stallion, Bendert 381, Odina star+pref, is also a half sister to Maaike Nienke!!! The approved Stallion Rik ( Oltman x Reitse)is also very close related to Meike Nienke.

This mare line is well known as top producer of Sport horses and show driving world champions.

Helena is Lyra's FIRST foal!!!! Likely to be just like her mom, Helena will be a top dressage contender. Her dam is very light in the mouth and moves easily off the leg of the rider (not lazy). And even a child can navigate Lyra through traffic, even pulling a carriage! 

Lyra has been to the Keuring and just missed Star in 2008. Her scores where excellent: Breeding type: 6.5 Build: 7 Walk: 7 Trot: 6.5

Lyra's reg # 200406088 & Microchip #528210000571772

Helena's daddy is the well known Mewes 438 (Teeuwis x Oege), who is one of europe's finest...... Mewes 438 was top 4 Stallions in the Stallion Show in Leeuwarden.

Helena has a low 4.49% Inbreeding

Helena's pedigree makes her very attractive for any breeding program, and her movement makes her a desirable horse to enjoy both riding and driving:) We think Lyra will make STER if tried in the US, which will then make Helena a FULL PEDIGREE MARE!!

Helena was just body clipped, so appears (as all friesians do) brown in the photos, but her hair will grow in JET BLACK.

Don't miss this great buy on a yearling friesian mare!!!
