I cannot recommend Janna and her company Fairytale Friesians highly enough. Hotse is not just my first Friesian, he is my first HORSE. He was everything Janna told us he would be and more. He has a forever home with me, and is perfect in every way. I truly cannot believe how stunning, sweet, kind and playful he is.
I had originally planned to go to Holland myself to find my first Black Pearl (with my trainer). Janna helped my trainer find another Friesian for a student of his a number of years ago, and he had a wonderful experience with her, so contacted her to see if she had any horses that would be right for me. I knew immediately that Hotse was my horse, but if you would have told me three months ago that I would be buying my FIRST horse sight unseen, I would have said you were nuts. However, after doing my due diligence, including uncovering Janna's excellent reputation in the horse industry, I felt it was the right thing to do - and I honestly feel that it's been the best decision of my life thus far. As that little girl so many of us were that begged for a pony from the time she was two, this horse has been a VERY long time coming. So I was putting a lot of eggs in this basket. All my fears were for naught! Janna has all of the connections in the Friesian world that are only gained through decades of trust and relationship building.
Janna will happily guide you through the whole process - vet checks, flight/importation, quarantine, etc. - she helps with all the details. Except to help with paperwork and personal preference for final delivery, there is very little that you will have to do except get the carrots and apples ready. She obviously has a VERY high standard for the quality of Friesians she imports - as evidenced by the exquisite creature that was delivered to me just one month ago!
Thank you for my Hotse, Janna! My horse for life.
