16.3H 2012 Friesian Stallion - Will Mature to 17+ Hands
(Doitsen x Fetse)
Tall, Elegant and Modern with Good Bone and Impeccable Conformation. Martzen has a playful, fun personality. Martzen is bred to excel as a sporthorse. He has a short back and a powerful hindquarter that will allow him to drive from behind.
Martzen's tail drags on the ground and his mane/forelock are thick so we do expect him to get a lot of hair. In addition, even though he is currently only coming 4 years old, Martzen has quite a bit of feathering.
As a two year old, Martzen was shown in hand at the Canadian Andalusian Nationals and won all five of his classes. Martzen was test collected last year and per the veterinarian his motility was over 85% - both mares inseminated were confirmed in foal the first attempt.
We will be limiting the breedings to Martzen his initial season, so contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in breeding him to your mare.
Breeding Fee: $500
