FPS Friesian Keuring Results
"Dreams Come True Farm"
foal and the 3YO to be keured, we
went to two different keurings, taking our 2005 Tsjerk filly,
"Sjaante," to Morven Park in Leesburg, VA on a gloomy, rainy day.
Sjaantje, presented by Bruce and Staci Griffin,was certainly exquisite and although her walk and trot
was not what we had been seeing, she still earned a 2e, becoming the
first horse we made ster! The judges said she was by far the prettiest
and best built mare there that day. There were no 1e's awarded to the
3+ mare group. I thought once I heard the FPS Dutch judges' assessment
of her qualities, I'd know exactly what path to follow, but am still
undecided as to her 2009 training--perhaps her linear score sheet, will
help with that decision. Her immediate future is more under saddle time
and driving here at the farm.
Our second keuring was at Iron
in Coatesville, PA. We expected our 2008 filly, "Carlee DCTF," a Teade
foal, would have no problem earning a 2nd
premie, but she was judged a 3e, and her score card showed she just
needed a .5 higher in her trot to get that 2e, so I am pleased that the
FPS now gives written evaluation on the foals. Of course since she has
returned to the farm she has displayed the kind of trot that those
judges were looking for.
Here at Dreams Come True Farm we are all still up in
clouds, estatic and somewhat in awe that we helped make a ster mare.
Yes, my dreams keep coming true!
