We lost Hessel in November of 2015. Hessel was a truly gentle giant with a heart of gold. Beloved Stallion.
Sired by one of the most outstanding stallions of all time; Feitse PREFERENT. Hessel is gorgeous, his temperament is amazing and he threw tall, beautiful and friendly offspring.
Sire, Feitse is as big, black and beautiful as they come. This preferent stallion is a son of Jochem, he a son of the preferent stallion, Mark. Feitse is out of the ASTRE, preferent mare, Lysebet, from the 70 family. He presented himself excellently there, and was qualified to compete at Ermelo. He completed a very good stallion test and was entered into the Friesian studbook. Feiste has achieved first premium each time he was presented at the stallion competitions. At test Feitse scored 8 for walk, 8 trot, and 8 for his gallop. Character, stable behavior and trainability all received scores of nine. So far, Feitse has five approved sons, including Rypke, Tsjerk, Fetse, Feike, and Folkert, champion of the stallion testing in 1999 and 2000. Feitse's daughters are also proving themselves of excellent quality: 51.4% of his daughters have earned the Ster predicate, and nine of his daughters have become model. Even after the ster designation became more difficult in 1992, Feitse had the largest number of ASTRE daughters. Not only are Feitse offspring well-known for their beautiful exteriors and quality movement, they are also well-proven in sport, including his son Fetse, part of the 1999 "three up" national champion driving team. Feiste also has champion pulling offspring, and in dressage he has several well know competitors including, Sietske, Rypke, Folkert and Feike. The 2002 youth champion, Betje, is a Feitse offspring. Champion and reserve champion sisters, Wietske Rimke ASTRE and Eefje Rimke are two outstanding daughters of Feiste.
