Mara - SOLD
Mara is a beautiful jet-black mare, sired by WORLD GRAND CHAMPION, Onne, and her mother is by the gorgeous moving Piter. Onne is one of the MOST well respected Approved stallions in europe....The average scores achieved by Onne's 3 year old offspring at their keuring is 110, tying him for the best stallion in the world! Not a bad thing to OWN an Onne mare in the U.S.:)
It doesn't stop there....., her dam's sire is Lammert, who is no longer living. He was an influential Friesian stallion ----- Lammert was from the small Age line and sired more than 1000 offspring including 5 approved Friesian stallions and 4 daughters were declared Model.
This is an exceptional opportunity to buy a daughter of the champion at the stallion show in 2007. Mara received a 2nd premium as a filly.
She has been started slowly and properly in dressage and she is in foal:) Mara comes from our private collection with a breeder that hand raised her. She is an easy mare with no white, and no vices or problems. She has SUCH a good trot, she moves even better than most star mares we see!!
Her motherline is exceptional: stb–star+preferent–star ( with 3 star offspring, used for breeding until her 14th year!!!!)–star(ALSO had 3 star offspring)–model– (ALSO had 3 star offspring)–star+preferent–model-preferent. Mara is in foal to approved stallion, Ait 410, located in Europe. Inbreeding of the upcoming foal is a LOW 2.93%. Mara became pregnant from only one insemination of this stallion ----so she is a VERY easy mare to bred with:)
Her mother measures 164 cm ...OVER 16 hands, and her father, Onne 376, measures 1.68 cm so Mara is likely herself to mature OVER 16 hands TALL.
She’s very easy to handle, always calm to people and friendly. She is really a good horse for somebody who wants to start with horses, or has no experience with horses, because of her kind, easy-going character.
She is currently 3 1/2 years old and a fairytale looking Friesian mare with a floaty trot with loads of air time, with a superb pedigree as well. Just check out the space and tact in the videoclips above, of this special mare!!! She narrowly missed becoming ster at the keuring recently in holland, in Esbeek. She was chosen as the very next mare, standing right next to the ster mares at the keuring, and while she became a 3rd premie studbook mare, we think she just didn’t show her best, and cantered a bit too much. She is the kind of mare we think is a no brainer for making STER, if tried again in the US, as she matures, because in holland there is a lot more competition. The only thing Mara needs is a day where she doesn't jump off her feet, and shows the trot she has! We are sure she can become star in the future, with that mind boggling trot of hers:)
Her sire, Onne, is considered one of the finest authorized Friesian stallions in the world and is known for passing on that rare floaty trot. His offspring are doing very well in competition and are also easily identified by their beautiful looks, movement, and personalities.
Mara shows perfect conformation and powerful gaits. Great disposition, easy to handle, and already trained to ride---check out her under saddle video----what a balanced canter for a 3 1/2 yr old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mara would be an excellent family horse, great for pleasure riding or taking out on the trail or up in the hills, and the bonus is her foal, due the 12th of March next year:)
Check out the sonogram photos of Mara's unborn foal....she is confirmed over 3 months in foal, making her an EXCELLENT 2 for 1 value.
Mara will be a joyful addition to your family, she is a delight to handle. Mara is 100% safe, sound, and sane, and clips, ties, cross ties, lunges, loads, and stands for the farrier.
This is a TOP NOTCH young Friesian mare imported from the Netherlands, hand raised by one Dutch man her whole life, with an excellent pedigree, drop dead gorgeous looks, fantastic movement, and a reasonable pricetag AND she is a great value, as her foal, due in March, will be worth nearly 1/2 of her purchase price. And her bloodlines are impeccable.
Mara stems from stam line 70, 10th generation. This is a highly productive stam line that has produced the likes of:
feitse P 293
and teeuwis 389
This GORGEOUS 3 1/2 yr old Friesian Mare is scheduled to fly into LA.
Her price INCLUDES recent pre-purchase, and ultra sound, AND Mara HAS JUST ARRIVED FROM EUROPE!!!!!!
