Friesian Mare In Foal To

Horse Description

Height: 15.3

This precious mare has the personality Friesian enthusiasts crave -- she LOVES people, is very curious and intelligent, and extra-smart. She's blessed with the smooth, lofty gaits of her Champion sire, Brandus, and the athleticism of her mother's sire, Djurre.
Orchid is FAR from average...she is a fully papered STER mare, with unbroken STER predicates in her motherline. It is said that the QUALITY of a Friesian mare is in her MOTHERLINE-and the ability of that motherline to pass on superb traits and characteristics. Orchid's motherline obviously produces TOP TOP quality offspring, her motherline is exceptional: STER-STER-STER+PREF-MODEL+PREF! You can't get a much a better producing motherline than one that is producing STER offspring and APPROVED stallions, and Orchid is only 7, which means she has 20 productive years left to produce champions. And Orchid is a PROVEN good mother.....she previously had two colts!
Orchid's babies could very well be Approved Stallions for YOU! And the Dutch Judge's like Orchid's conformation and movement, by awarding her the STER status at just 3 yrs of age.

We love this FULL PAPERED STER MARE, that is confirmed 2 1/2 mos in foal to the WORLD GRAND CHAMPION, Jasper!!!!!!

Orchid is a fabulous Ster mare with stunning movement and puppy dog personality.
Orchid is considered the creme de la creme of mares... ...a full pedigree ster mare in foal to an Approved stallion that is ONLY available in Europe!!!

This mare is a fraction of the cost of many full pedigree pregnant STER mares we have seen, of the same young age, AND Orchid is double trained to ride AND drive!!!

Looking for a new member to your family???? Orchid has a wonderful temperament, she is well behaved in all settings, and good with children.

The real bonus is........this mare is pregnant , and confirmed in foal to the one and ONLY Jasper (sire of our 2nd level dressage National Champion, Ate)!!! The only way to get a Jasper is to either import him/her, or breed a mare to Jasper, and then import her........ And that is exactly what we have done with Orchid.

This mare is a gem! She has amazing full papers with 21 generations of model/model preferent, ster/ster preferent lines -- THERE ARE NO HOLES. She is a beautiful mover and as sweet as sugar. She has that amazing black coat that everyone wants. Her temperament compliments her looks as she is as smart and as quick a learner as they come. She is responsive, eager, light in the mouth, and has three nice, smooth gaits; she has a great work ethic and is super-smart. She loves trails! This mare is a great addition to any top notch breeding program.
Orchid measures 161 cm and has a low 3.12% in breeding, meaning you can breed her to just about ANY Approved stallion.
Her registered name is Brechtsje Antsje and her birthday is May 19, 2000.

Orchid is a very sweet 7 yr old mare with beautiful movements, wonderful conformation and stunning looks. She has tons of mane, forelock and feathers. She is very easy to ride AND drive, and is very willing and honest.

Her mother is STER, Grandmother is STER, Great Grandmother is Ster+Pref, and Great Great Grandmother is Model+Pref. Her linear scores are out of the ballpark:
Type is 8, Legwork is 7, Walk is 7, Trot is 7
