News about Friesian Horse Stables
19 June 2020 - Lots of exciting news to share with you
Dear visitor / customer of our website. We feel blessed that despite the Corona virus, our business is still going strong and nobody passed away in our families and relations.
We sell a lot of Friesians horses here in The Netherlands and from time to time other countries in Europe.
We didn’t have had any export outside Europe since the start of the Corona virus (here in Holland) but the first friesian horses are being sold now to countries like USA and the transporters are starting up as well. So we have a good feeling about this too.
We like to have the best quality of Friesian horses for sale and place the horses as soon as possible at our homepage. We are also improving our mobile version of our web page. If you do have comments, please let us know. Nowadays you can also contact us easily via Whatsapp!

5 en 6 augustus 2018: Zilverschoon van Zomerstaete verovert drie titels tijdens zomerse fokdag te Hilvarenbeek
Ze doet haar naam eer aan: Zilverschoon van Zomerstaete is ook een wonderschone merrie om te zien. Tel daarbij op haar krachtige en ruime bewegingen die ze keer op keer toonde, ondanks de warmte. Het algemeen kampioenschap op de fokdag van Het Friesche Paard Zuid-Nederland maandag in Hilvarenbeek kon haar daarmee niet meer ontgaan. Zilverschoon werd eerst verkozen tot kampioen bij de driejarige merries, vervolgens was ze de beste bij de driejarigen en ouder en uiteindelijk ook de beste van de dag. De driejarige Zilverschoon is een dochter van Hessel 480 en werd door eigenaar familie Flier van Zomerstaete BV gefokt uit een Veulenboekmerrie van Onne 476. ‘Een royaal ontwikkelde merrie met heel veel uitstraling, die mooi opwaarts draaft met een heel goed aantredend achterbeen. Deze merrie benadert heel dicht het fokdoel’, waren de lovende woorden van juryvoorzitter Sabien Zwaga.
Een fokkersdroom is uitgekomen voor ons met het behalen van het kampioenschap van onze eigen gefokte merrie Zilverschoon van Zomerstaete op een van de mooiste fokdagen van Nederland. Met de moeder van Zilverschoon is alles begonnen en dit versterkt dan ook de emoties die dan vrijkomen op zo’n keuring!! Fantastisch om dit mee te maken als familie, bedrijf, personeel en vrienden.
De moeder van Zilverschoon is Hinke van de Broekstraat, gefokt bij familie Blommers den Otter in Gemonde (Onne 376 Sport x Feitse 293 Preferent uit een Model+Preferente moeder). Hinke heeft al 3 Ster kinderen, nog 1 Ster nakomeling en ze word Preferent.
De 1e is Hero van Zomerstaete, een Sterhengst van Olrik 383, die kampioen is geworden in Slowakije. De 2e Ster nakomeling is Victoria van Zomerstaete, een 1e premie Ster merrie van Norbert 444 Sport+Preferent. Victoria verwacht haar 1e veulen half maart 2019 van de hengst Jehannes 484 Sport.
En de 3e Ster nakomeling is bovengenoemde, 1e premie Ster en kampioensmerrie Zilverschoon van Zomerstaete. Daarnaast heeft Hinke reeds een 1e premie, kampioen hengstveulen gebracht van Pier 448 Sport.
Zijn naam is Mon Chou van Zomerstaete, deze hengst heeft al voor diverse prachtige nakomelingen gezorgd in Israël. Helaas worden hier geen keuringen gehouden door het KFPS, hier had Mon Chou zeker kans gehad op het Ster predicaat. Gelukkig hebben we nog meer jonge nakomelingen staan van Hinke. Dit zijn voor alsnog Bonita van Zomerstaete (Hessel 480) en Doutzen van Zomerstaete (Thorben 466). Daarnaast hebben wij in 2018 een embryo gespoeld van Menne 496. Deze zal, mits alles goed gaat, eind maart 2019 geboren worden.

We are very thankful for the start of the new year. We have added some new countries to our customer relations and the sold friesian horses left already to their final destinations; Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Russia, Slovenia, Turkey, Sweden, UK, USA. All customers are happy and satisfied so we are very thankful for this.
In the meanwhile the first foals has been born healthy. Guusje van Zomerstaete was the first one. She is born at 24 January and she is sired by Epke 474 Sport x Wikke 404 Sport x Hearke 254 Sport+Preferent. She comes out of a full papered mother line with lots of Preferent in it. We have bred her mother back by Tymen 503. At 13 March our Dutch Warmblood mare (KWPN) gave birth to a colt. His name is N-Joy and he is sired by It’s a Pleasure x Inspecteur. We are very pleased with both foals!
