Tonjes 459 on the Move
October 26, 2012
Kettle Creek Friesians of St. Thomas in Ontario, Canada is pleased to announce that Tonjes 459 (Anton 343 Sport X Ulke 338 Sport) has safely reached his destination at SBH-Horses (Stoeterij Bosksicht Holland), owned by Sjoerd Meekma and Greetje Swart of Rijs, The Netherlands. This new arrangement between these two stables will allow Tonjes exposure to another population of KFPS-registered Friesian mares. Similarly, it marks the launch of breeding services for SBH-Horses.
“With Tonjes’s first crop of foals on the ground, I am very confident that he has the ability to make a significant and meaningful contribution to the breed.” said owner Jack Vanderkooy.
Tonjes will be the only Approved son of the well-known and well-respected Anton 343 Sport to be stabled in The Netherlands. With his mother, Tjallina W. Model, out of Stam 50, Tonjes’s mother line is Model (Ulke 338 Sport), Ster + Pref (Leffert 306), Ster + Pref (Lammert 260). Having these genetic influences, Tonjes is poised to make a very positive contribution in both racial type and movement.
In 2011, Tonjes spent his first full breeding season stabled in Ontario, Canada. During his second breeding season in 2012, Tonjes stood at stud at the Friesian Connection in Michigan, USA. “Tonjes is easily the best mannered and most cooperative stallion we have ever worked with”, said Janice VerMerris of The Friesian Connection. “His temperament is second to none”.
Tonjes 459 is expected to make his official debut to Dutch breeders at the 2013 Hengsten Keuring in Leeuwarden in January.
