2018 FPS Friesian Keuring Results   

"Dreams Come True Farm"        

   On October 1 we went to Coatesville, PA, for the KFPS/FHANA/ISF Friesian keuring, taking Crown mare Sjaantje and her April Sape colt, Hamilton DCTF. We had practiced all summer for the new foal keuring protocol where the foals we lead beside their dams. Unfortuantely I had neglected to tell the handler that he only needed to walk beside Sjaantje with the colt's lead around in front and across her chest. So when he got out in front of Hamilton and hunkered down facing the colt, Hamilton sucked back and never showed his 6" overstep walk. Third premie for Hamilton that day. October 5th Isobel participated in FHANA's second Central Mare Show in Springfield, OH, and was in the Mares 7 and older Division, which she won, qualifying her for the final round. Too excited to show a nice walk, her jigging got her excused, so she remains a first premie star sport mare. Retired from the show ring, she will begin her career as DCTF's Friesian broodmare, and her first foal is due May 1, 2019.

Hamilton has better farrier manners as a weanling than many much older horses
