Dec 09, 2017 Vincent MFR is invited to 70 day teset for approved stallions in North America!

Jan 01, 2017 Doaitsen 420 Sport named 2016 USEF breeding stallion of the year for Friesians!

Congratulations to everyone who have shown their Doaitsen offspring in 2016, allowing him to be named "USEF 2016 Leading Sire, Full and Half Friesian"!

I have loved reading all of the FB posts and e-mails about people showing their Doaitsen offspring over the years, which echo the comments from the judges on offspring testing:

  • "Offspring are tall, modern, alert horses who are willing to work"
  • "Offspring show athleticism, balance and suppleness"
  • "Offspring show super use of rear leg"
  • Offspring are "horses who are a pleasure to work with".

Our own experience at Maddi's Friesian Ranch is that Doaitsen and his offspring are brave, curious horses who are forward moving, not lazy and a joy to work with...and watch! We ride trails with them and in our in-door and outdoor arenas!
