HESSEL 480 APPROVED ON OFFSPRING

The 9-year-old America-based Hessel 480 (Norbert 444 x Jelke 367) has successfully completed his Progeny Test which means his breeding licence will be permanently maintained.
In the previous year 43 3-year-old mares by Hessel 480 were assessed at inspections. Of these, 40 were registered in the Studbook, one daughter is Crown and twenty acquired the Star predicate, six of them with a first premium. That brings the Star percentage to 52,5 %. Sixteen of his 47 inspected sons are Star and three sons have received a ticket for the Central Examination. Five offspring had qualified for the Final of the Friesian Talent Cup. Daughter Yersie C. carried off victory in the mare category and in the stallions and geldings category his sons Yde van de Noeste Hoeve and Wytze HSL came in first place. The comprehensive report can be found in ‘Stallion Information February 2019.’ Full details of Hessel 480’s breeding values are available in the KFPS database.
