beautiful location of Stalhouderij The Vliers Valleys there was re-energized.
There have been 14 stallions specified from four different countries, the
Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Denmark. Also the public interest was well
above expectation. "Our organization lives", said our President Mr.
Lammert Heida the public. The jury consisted of four persons: chief inspector Mr..
Gerrit Stelwagen, inspector Mr.. Zwiers, from the sports commission, Ms
Marjoram Betten De Jong and prospective juror Geertje of the Van Veen.
year only XX and FB stallions were entered, but now this year were
entered four stallions to be inspected that qualify for our breeding
goals. In the class XX (horses without Frisian blood) had nine stallions
logged in. In the class FB (horses with Friesian blood but not Pinto) was

least 25% Friesian blood) were four horses. At 8.30 the stallions were measured

stallions were led into the cage and were walked around the cage
with their handlers. After a round, the stallions were let off lead
and allowed to run "at Liberty" . During this time the
Jury made notes about the stallions in the free movement at the trot and
canter. The stallions were then caught by their handlers Some
stallions were very happy and had a lot of energy. These stallions was
given extra time to calm down to go into more relaxed gaits for proper
assessment by the Jury.
jury can judge a quiet and relaxed trot and a canter more accurately.
. After all stallions were presented in their group, it was directly
stated whether or not a stallion was to continue onto the 3rd round.
If a stallion does not continue to the third round, then it was
clearly explained to the public by the chief inspector to the owners the
critique of the stallion. . The stallions that were asked to come back for
the 3rd round, were required an examination by the onsite
veterinarian Geert Weggemans.
were a total of 4 stallions approved, two in the class XX and two in the
class BP. In order to qualify for the BPS approval/license, a
stallion must get at least 44 points on six parts. The stallion may not
present inadequate movement. The stallions from the class XX receive a
breeding license of 50 mares per year for the first three years. The
stallions within our Breeding goals may unlimited cover the first three
years. One can also be a Ster stallion within our stud book t/m 2015 and
receive a breeding license for so many foals per year. The stallion should
have achieved a minimum of 40 points. Within three years, both the
approved stallions may be inspected for star offspring.
the approved stallions must be inspected at least 20 progeny which at
least 50% achieve a second premium. Of the Star stallions must be
inspected at least five offspring or 20% of the number of mares covered.

class FB was Coos fan Groot Malckenhorst of T. Van Herwaarden in Terschuur

from Gerrit Stelwagen:
relatively small association but with very enthusiastic/active
members and I would prefer to approve each stallion; but
unfortunately this was not possible. The jury are in agreement on
the judging in this inspection. The new approved stallions are of
very good quality. We have given each stallion the opportunity to
prove themselves. The stallions that have now been given a breeding
license deserve a chance in our breeding. I think that the stallions
owners and the public are clearly going in the direction in
which we see our future. We have also as the jury corps,
very much enjoyed the IBOP presentation of the stallion "Cool
Willow Spring". The stallion is a very good example for our
Breeding Stallion in BP stamboek:
