Fridse 423 Sport

It is with heavy hearts that we are informing the Friesian community that Fridse 423 Sport has passed away.  For the past month Fridse has not been feeling well and despite our best efforts and excellent veterinary care Fridse passed away peacefully on October 30, 2018.

Fridse was a son of the stallion Teunis 332 and out of the star preferent mare Lobke Y (sire:  Nammen 308).  He was a proud stallion.  Fridse was most known for producing baroque type offspring.  He was 17 hands tall and passed on his height to many of his offspring.  Many Friesian enthusiasts loved his tippy ears and generous feathering.  Fridse’s star mare percentage averaged about 50% year after year.

Fridse was lovingly owned by Louis and Julia Dorfman of Dallas, Texas and Jim and Sally Bedeker of Morris, Illinois.  He stood for breeding at the Friesian Connection Stallion Station, Inc. in Dorr, Michigan.

Fridse was a very special stallion and he will be greatly missed.
