Bouke was born in March, 2000. he earned a 2nd premie as a foal. He is sired by Liekele. Liekele was the 1st Premium Friesian stallion in his age group at the 2003 Stallion Show. And don't take it from us, just take a look at Bouke's keuring results from 2003....The Judge's gave him a resounding overall score of 78.1, including an "8" for "showing" and "7.5" for "effort" and "7.4" for "driving"!!! Here is whhat the Judge's wrote:
"Bouke is a strongly built stallion with a lot of Friesian expression. During the exterior score he presented himself incredibly, which resulted in a STER rating. Under the saddle he shows much talent annd effort, but his biggest talent is in being a driving horse. He has good working position with strong use of the hindlegs. In short, Bouke is a good sporting horse witth a GREAT future!"
