The horses paw and prance and neigh,
Fillies and colts like kittens play,
And dance and toss their rippled manes
Shining and soft as silken skeins;...
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Hidde B, Friesian
Congratulations to Anne and Dana in Virginia! Hidde B (Teunis 332) is a funny boy with personality plus and classic Friesian looks!
"Meet our Black Pearl, Hidde B. Born in the Netherlands, he came to the U.S. as a yearling, thanks to Old Corner Stables. He is the second Friesian colt we purchased from Old Corner Stables through a video and numerous conversations with the Old Corner family. Old Corner Stables even arranged door to door shipping without a snag. Our classic Pearl is everything we expected him to be. Today, Hidde, aka Hjerte, continues to make us laugh with his dry sense of humor and his endearing antics. He is a lot of fun to "play" our natural horsemanship games with, and like most Friesians, he is super smart. He loves to play with us, too. He's living the happy life with us, and we love him, heart and soul!" Thanks, Old Corner Stables!" ~Dana and Anne, Virginia, USA.
Marchje, Friesian Ster Mare
In the fall of 2007, Marchje became a 1st premie Ster mare. That means that she is ranked among the best and most promising of Friesian mares for breeding. Congratulations, Lisa Ebnet in the UK!!
Christina is a great mover in all 3 gaits. She is a real people-pleaser, and we have high expectation of her for the dressage world. She will be so much fun to work with. Christina is going to Renee in Michigan. Congratulations Renee!
