CASPIAN - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - CASPIAN Brain Tumor?! No problem for Jenni & Caspian! HAPPY New Partnership:):)
Dear Janna, Thank you for all of your help with Caspian. I am thrilled beyond belief to have found him! I have several Friesian/Percheron crosses and never dreamed that I would ever find the perfect Full Friesian for me. The moment I sat on him, I fell in love. He is the perfect height and size for me (I am 5'11")! I never dreamed such a horse could ever be mine. The attached photos are from my first rides! Since then, I have had the opportunity to ride and drive Caspian on many occasions. There are so many reasons I love Caspian. His sweet and steady nature are impressive! I have a brain tumor and sometimes am unsteady and unbalanced. Caspian is kind and never takes a false step. I trust him and he is very safe, not only for riding, but also driving (on those days when my balance won't let me get on a horse). This is not to say that I have found Caspian to be a dead-head...he certainly has a big way of going and has quite a motor! I love that! Caspian's Dressage training is evident and we will be competing him as soon as we are all ready. Dreams do come true! Thanks to you, for making my dreams come true! All the best!
Jenni Torlone


MEINDERT BSF - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - MEINDERT BSF Congratulations to Ginger in NC!
We just purchased our first Friesian horse from Janna Weir in California and wanted to comment on this adventure. We lost our last horse about a month ago after having him at our home in Matthews, NC for 20 years. My wife wanted another horse since she has been riding since she was 5 years old. I know how much horses mean to her so told her to start looking. Somehow she ran across the Friesian horse breed and since she wanted a broke horse just for pleasure riding on our property, she started calling local barns in our area. Then she saw one of Janna’s adds online and called her up. She was impressed with Janna after the first call and when I got home from travelling, told me to call her.   I am a salesman for machinery in the Carolinas for 50 years, so I can size up people pretty fast. Janna was very impressive from day one. Once I started looking her up and reading about her Friesian business and experience, I told my wife this is where we buy a Friesian horse. Janna will help you find what you are looking for and work getting it done. She went overboard with us to make sure the buying of this horse was according to plan, and helped us all the way through getting him delivered from Florida to NC. I told her we were nuts buying a horse like this one sight unseen, but we trusted her since she has been selling these horses for about 30 years. She told me 85% of her customers buy from watching a video of the horse, which is what we did. When the horse arrived last Monday night at 12 pm, we couldn’t have been more surprised at how mild mannered he was, and he adapted to his new home right away. He is every bit what Janna said he would be and more. 9 hours later we had a saddle on him and walked him around. He even followed me around with out a lead rope. We are tickled pink and will enjoy this beauty for many years.   I cannot recommend Janna enough. She is very sweet and answers your questions. IF she doesn’t know the answer, she says so. That’s what I like about her, she is honest. If we buy another horse, it will be from her. Lester and Ginger Wright Matthews, NC


Sjirk STER and SPORT - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Sjirk STER and SPORT Janna, Beth really loves her boy.  He is very happy.  She is in love. He is really just BEAUTIFUL!    -Maxie in Athens, GA  


Hotse - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Hotse 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.  -Mary Patricia, Noblesville, IN


Olbert STER - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Olbert STER HUGE Congrats to Gene in Alabama!
I want to thank Janna for allowing me to purchase Olie. I could tell that Olie had a special place in her heart and I know it was hard for her to let him go. Olie has been such a blessing to me. I lost a Friesian last year who was my best friend. I have never had a relationship with a horse like I did with Eise. His death left a big void in my heart. When Olie showed up he immediately filled that void. He was everything I expected him to be. Olie has turned out to be an incredible athlete. This guy is very confident and talented in the dressage arena. When he arrived he was well manicured and groomed. Attention to every detail was done in making him look like a million dollars. A lot of time and care went into getting him ready for his new home.   I was very impressed with Janna's support staff. I could tell that they truly loved this horse and wanted the best for him. I would highly recommend Janna to anyone thinking about purchasing a Friesian. I will definitely be doing business with her again.   -Gene in Alabama

Magnifiek STER - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Magnifiek STER Grats to Cathy in SC on her 4th BSF Friesian!!!
Oh, my goodness! I thought he would be very nice but he is beyond exquisite! He arrived in great shape (thank you, Bob Hubbard) Saturday night. Allie rode him tonight for the first time. She is totally smitten! What an amazing trot! She has been riding since she turned 4 and is now almost 16. She has had some nice (and some not-so-nice) horses over the years but has never been head over heels about any horse until now! Thank you, Janna. You have thrilled both of us beyond words...  We could not have gotten a better horse for her. Your recommendation was so perfect... Cathy in S.C.


Val SPORT - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Val SPORT 2nd Friesian going to Tanja in Montana!
I was so pleased with the purchase of Tariq last year that when I saw Val Sport, a few months ago, I knew that I had to add him to my herd. Val has been so fun to ride in the arena and is such a wonderful driving horse. I have used both horses for dressage, trail and driving (single, double and four up). These horses have been so versatile that I have even used them for farming.
Most recently, I used them for my dad's funeral. It was the most beautiful tribute.
If your looking for a friesian, you will want to contact Janna! -Tanja in Montana


SETSE - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - SETSE Headed to Texas for Chet & Diane!

Robyn Ster & SPORT - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Robyn Ster & SPORT Congrats to Gail!

What an amazing guy he is!
-Gail in Templeton, CA


Merje STER & SPORT - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Merje STER & SPORT Grats to Diane in KY!!
Janna,Thank you so much for helping me to find my beautiful mare, Merje Fan Dijkmaniastate, our “Minke”. She is such an regal horse, great personality, so very sweet and absolutely incredible to ride. The process has gone very smoothly from US quarantine to the CEM quarantine in Rigby and finally home. The girls at Rigby were very helpful and great to work with. She has fit in perfectly with our other horses and they are currently showing her the ropes and gradually introducing her to all the different pastures. In April, we will get our second gift from Fairytale Friesian Finder, our foal from the stallion, Julius. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous purchasing a horse sight unseen, but I had a confidence after talking to you that I had not had with other individuals. You take great pride in bringing back the best Friesians from the Netherlands and it shows in what you have produced. You have an expansive history with horses and certainly understand the breed.  If anyone has the same fears I have had, I would be more than happy to speak them personally, you are more than welcome to give them my contact info.  If I decide to purchase another Friesian in the future I wouldn’t hesitate contacting Fairytale Friesian Finders. Thanks for everything Janna.  I hope my testimonial will give anyone else who is on the fence the courage to trust what they see.  I also hope to get to meet you someday in person, you have become an invaluable resource and friend. I owe so much thanks to you.    Best, Diane


Cilla - SOLD Sold Friesian Horse - Cilla Congrats to Cheryl in Minn!!!
Hi Janna, the first time I saw Cilla on the morning of the 9th (in quarantine), I was so struck with her beauty! You are right, the photos and videos just don’t’ do her justice. My husband came with me as well and we instantly fell in love with her! I’ve been spending the majority of my days with her for the last several days and I just love her personality too! She’s so inquisitive, she needs to know everything that is going on around her and she’s so very friendly. She just loves the cats and dogs in the barn too; it’s so sweet to watch her sniff them and follow them around. She’s everything that I could have ever hoped for! She’s getting all settled in and we are slowly introducing her to new things. She’ll have her first official training lesson this week, so I’m excited to learn more about how she thinks. Everyone at the barn just loves her! Thank you so much for your help and finding her for me! I honestly wouldn’t change a thing about her! Thank you!! Cheryl in Minn
