Hessel is, because of his type, the absolute epitome of a modern Friesian. He’s big, has length in the legs and is built upwardly, which is accentuated even more through his long, light neck. He distinguishes himself by strong connections between the different skeletal parts such as neck/shoulder, shoulder/back and back/loins, followed by a long and well laid croup. That is where athletic ability and sustainability come from!
In the performance test Hessel stood out with his impressive way of moving. His trot is absolutely spectacular. He has a high and far reaching front leg, with power from behind. This stallion moves with a lot of body use and is flexible. The walk is spacious and active, in the canter he jumps up beautifully with a lot of balance.
The bloodlines of Hessel are very interesting. His sire is the famous stallion Norbert 444. The mother of Hessel, Jitscke, is a star daughter of Jelke 367. Jelke was a large and modern stallion and a son of Pyt 325. The dam report describes Jitscke at the age of 10 as a beautiful mare and breed typical, with a lot of quality in the legs, a spacious and powerful walk and a good trot with a nice body frame. The granddam of Hessel is the 1st premium star mare Preferent Sport Fryske vd Boschijk.
