Third Premium Studbook Mare
Tetse 394 x Oeds
Registration # 200253410
Grace is our newest addition to the Mythic Friesians herd. She is a coming four year old full papered mare from stam 44, by the young approved stallion Tetse 394. Grace is one of Tetse's youngest foals, and is definately a testament to the quality of him as a sire.
At her three year old keuring, the runner called her a "brave little mare". That might not sound like much, but it really describes Gracie perfectly. She is a little mare with a huge heart. She will do absolutely anything for you, giving her all to whatever work you ask of her. She is sweet and affectionate, loyal and willing. And her movement - well, small she might be, but she moves like a horse twice her size. She has so much power and flash to her movement that she draws the eye no matter where she goes.
No where was that more apparent than at the 2005 keuring. She was drawing notice even before she went in to the ring - but once she was in there, Grace was the star of the show. Well, Reserve Champion, actually. Grace was awarded Reserve Champion even over mares that received their star - she simply did not have the height required to make star herself. Only 2 cm short, she will be going back to hopefully become an official star mare in 2006.
Grace is open for 2006. She will be bred to Rintse 386 for a 2007 filly. Due to the wonders of technology, we can know with 85% certainty that this foal will be a girl. The filly will be available for sale in utero once Grace is confirmed in foal at 45 days.
