September 20, 2016 - Keuring in Red Deer, Alberta
Well, it was a wet and dreary keuring day at Bosch Farms in Red Deer, Alberta, but that didn't stop the Alberta Friesian Horse Association from putting on a great event.
This year we brought 3 foals and a mare for inspection
Auke fan Netook (Wobke 403 Spor x Trienke fan Olds x Ulke 338 Sport) - 3rd premium, 8 for racial type
Calliope MF (Date 477 Sport x Vokeltsje D. Star x Tije 401 Sport) - 2nd premium, 8 for racial type

Rhiannon MF (Lolke 371 Sport x Liskje fan 'e Sjongedyk x Onne 376 Sport) - Studbook, ranked first of the 3 year old mare
It was a tough judging but fair and we had a lot of fun!

May 22, 2016 - Finally, a keeper filly! Our Clydesdale mare Missy presented us with a beautiful filly, an embryo transfer from Star mare Vokeltsje D. and sired by Date 477 Sport. Her name is Calliope MF and she will be staying with us!
May 15, 2016 - The first foal of our foaling season has arrived! Another big strong colt, full brother to Zonta MF from 2015, this Sape colt out of Ceridwen MF is sold. His name is Arion MF.
February 11-14, 2016 - We had a fantastic time representing the Alberta Friesian Horse Association at the Saskatchewan Equine Expo. The weather was kind to us so there was a great turnout!
January 15, 2016 - The new edition of Horse Country magazine is out, and it features one of our old mares on the cover! You can see it online here: Horse Country
It also features an article on Friesian horse conformation written by myself and Carla Jordet, and an article by Annie Muilwijk about The Caravan, a horse trip across the southern USA in 2015. The Alberta Friesian Horse Association is well respresented in this issue!
October 1, 2015 - The shell of the barn is complete! Doors will be installed later this month and then we will get the stalls in place before spring foaling season arrives.
September 22, 2015 - Construction is beginning on our barn!
September 18, 2015 - KFPS Keuring day in Red Deer, Alberta! Our new filly Tsjitske-V. fan Lytssypenstein showed in the yearling class and was awarded a 2nd premium, with excellent marks on her walk and trot. This filly is an imported Alke daughter out of a Model Rypke daughter. She is a spitfire and we can't wait to see how she does at the keuring as an adult!
We had an amazing time at the keuring, as always the Alberta Friesian Horse Association put on a fantastic event with lots of fun and education for everyone.
August 21, 2015 - We are at the new farm! We will be moving slowly over the next few months, so please forgive us if things seem to be in disarray on both the website and Facebook page.
August 1, 2015 - We are welcoming a new breeding lease mare to Mythic Friesians! Trienke fan Olds will be coming to us from our wonderful friend Carla Jordet in Alberta. Trienke is a beautiful Ulke mare, and she is expecting a foal in 2016, so we are now expecting a 4th foal in 2016!

June 9, 2015 - We will have a new black beauty joining us this fall! Stay tuned for details.
June 3, 2015 - Undara MF is home, but a long way from out of the woods. We have switched care to a vet who was willing to give her more time to come through the laminitis. She has a very long road ahead of her, and we would appreciate any and all prayers, light and healthy thoughts that anyone can spare for her! The good news is, her colt is doing very well. His legs have straightened up without the need for casts or surgery.
May 26, 2015 - Undara's colt by Bene was born with contracted tendons in both forelegs. While they did not look too bad, we decided to take him in to the University of Saskatchewan vet college to have him looked at - and it is a good thing we did! The colt is coming along marvelously and his legs are straightening just fine, but Undara has developed laminitis due to a uterine infection. She is currently undergoing intensive care to try to save her.
May 24, 2015 - The last Friesian foal of the year for Mythic Friesians has arrived. Undara MF had a beautiful colt by Bene 476. This colt was sold in utero, and his owner was able to be here to see him born! Congratulations Deb!
May 8, 2015 - All 3 of our 2015 colts are now SOLD.
May 4, 2015 - Our 2014 colt Viktor MF now has a full brother! Vokeltsje D. had her second colt by Sape 381 Sport this evening. This colt is For Sale.
April 18, 2015 - Our Tsjerk foal has finally arrived - fast and furious! It seemed like Eowyn just laid down and he popped right out. He is a very nice colt, and likely one of the last foals sired by the late Tsjerk 328 Sport Preferent anywhere in the world! This colt is For Sale.
April 15, 2015 - Ceridwen presented us with our first foal of the year - a big strapping Sape colt! While we were hoping for a filly, he is perfect so we won't complain. This colt is For Sale.
March 18, 2015 - Undara's results are in - and we are 4 for 4! She is negative for the hydracephalus and dwarfism genes. That means every one of our broodmares tested clear for both genes!
March 5, 2015 - Ceridwen's results are in - she is negative for both the dwarfism and hydracephalus genes!
February 17, 2015 - Great news for Mythic Friesians! We have received the test results for the waterhead and hydracephalus tests for Vokeltsje D. and Eowyn MF. Both mares are negative for both genes! That means they can be bred to any stallion and still have no chance of producing a dwarf or waterhead foal. We are still waiting on the test results for Ceridwen and Undara - we will post them as soon as we receive them.
September 19, 2014 - We had a great time at the KFPS keuring in Red Deer, Alberta. Undara MF and Vokeltsje D. both stayed at their current registry standing (3rd premium Studbook and 2nd premium Star, respectively) and Viktor MF was awarded a very high 2nd premium. The day ran smoothly - kudos to the site hosts! After the keuring, the judges held a judging clinic, and then stayed for a BBQ with the Alberta Friesian Horse Club. We are already looking forward to the 2015 keuring!
August 19, 2014 - One month until the Red Deer, Alberta keuring! We are taking Undara MF, Vokeltsje D, and Viktor MF this year. The count down is on! Hope to see lots of people there!
July 21, 2014 - Last preg checks of the year are completed! Undara MF is confirmed safely in foal to Bene 476. This foal is already sold!
June 13, 2014 - Vokeltsje D. is confirmed back in foal to Sape 381 Sport for 2015! This baby will be a full sibling to Viktor MF. We will be keeping the foal if it is a filly, but it will be available for sale if it is a colt.
June 6, 2014 - We needed some good news today, and thankfully, we got it. Ceridwen MF is confirmed in foal to Sape 381 Sport, and Eowyn MF is confirmed in foal to Tsjerk 328 Preferent! These 2015 foals will only be available for sale if they are colts.
June 4, 2014 - Today was a very sad day here at Mythic Friesians. We received a call from our vet that they had found Undara's colt, Thorondor, dead in the paddock. A necropsy was performed and it was determined that the cause of death was an aortic rupture. This is a far too common cause of death in Friesians, but unusual in one so young. We are devastated, for our own loss and for Kaitlyn, his owner.
May 17, 2014 - Our second and final foal of the year has arrived, after making us wait what seemed like forever! Vokeltsje had a much anticipated, very leggy colt sired by Sape this afternoon. This is the Age x Age line colt we have been waiting for! He will be staying at Mythic Friesians.
May 9, 2014 - Undara's foal has arrived! Just before midnight, Undara finally let us meet her Lolke foal - a gigantic colt! He is the biggest foal we have had in 11 years of breeding Friesians. His legs go on forever! He has his dam's easy personality - he was happy to be petted all over and then followed me for more. This colt is sold - his name is Thorondor MF. Congratulations Kaitlyn!
March 21, 2014 - All of our 2014 foals are now spoken for. We will have one foal for sale in 2015, out of Vokeltsje D, however this foal will not be available in utero. Please email us if you are interested in an in utero foal out of one of our mares in a future year!
March 10, 2014 - We are beginning a website wide update. We apologize for the last year or two of the page always being out of date - we are finally set up to do updates more often! Thank you for your patience!
November 21, 2013 - Liskje has headed home to rejoin her owner Lynn. Thank you Lynn for letting us enjoy this beautiful mare a little while longer!
October 1, 2013 - Undara's colt Pyke, sired by Doaitsen 420 Sport, has been sold and has left for his new home. His new owner took the liberty of renaming him so his official registered name is now Poseidon MF. Congratulations Janet and Poseidon! We can't wait to see how this boy turns out, and thankfully he won't be too far from home.
June 30, 2013 - Morgandy MF has been sold and has gone to her new home in Montana. Congratulations Nicole and Morgandy!
June 18, 2013 - Opal MF has gone to her new home with Joan Dixon in South Dakota. This filly is going to be a show stopper - we are so glad she is going to a great home that will make sure she gets to a keuring in a few years!
May 13, 2013 - Our second and last Friesian foal of the year made his debut today. After days of looking imminent, Undara MF decided to try to sneak her foal out at dinnertime, out in the field! We caught her in the act and this beautiful colt was born without complications. We are calling him Pyke MF (pronounced Pie-kuh) and he is for sale. Pictures of him on the For Sale page!
April 27, 2013 - Our first foal of 2013 is here! And we have been waiting for this foal a long time - since 2008 to be precise. This is our foal out of Liskje fan 'e Sjongedyk, sired by Lolke 371 Sport, and she was worth the wait! We have named her Rhiannon MF.
June 21, 2012 - Ceridwen's foal has arrived! With another filly, that makes us an all filly year. This one is sired by Sipke. She is a very pretty girl and will be tall like her mama. This filly is for sale - you can see pictures of her on our For Sale page.
May 22, 2012 - Our first Friesian foal of the year has arrived! Vokeltsje D presented us with a leggy, refined filly well ahead of schedule. Mom and baby are both doing great and Vogue his a natural mom! See pictures on Vogue's page and our Sold page.
May 6, 2012 - Undara MF is back from training and looking great! A huge thanks to Deb at Birchwood Stables and Jenn Bromm (owner of Wolfric MF) for taking such good care of her.
January 12, 2012 - Well, apparently we're not all that good at keeping secrets! Liskje fan e' Sjongedyk is returning to Mythic Friesians on a breeding lease in 2012. Thank you Lynn for allowing us the opportunity to breed this wonderful mare again!
January 9, 2012 - A new mare will be joining the Mythic Friesians herd soon! She is a familiar face and name to some of you. But, it's a secret until she arrives, so check back for more details soon!
January 2, 2012 - Undara MF has left to be trained under saddle! She is training at Birchwood Stables and will be there for 4 months, and then be coming home to be bred in May. It will be wonderful to have a horse to ride around here again!

January 5, 2011 - It has been a sad start to our year here at Mythic Friesians. Today, we found Pieterke fan 'e Kamperdyk cast in a fence. With the recent extreme cold and how long she had been down, she was never able to regain her feet, and she had to be euthanized. RIP Pita - now you are free from sickness once again.
September 24, 2010 - Keuring in Olds, Alberta
It was a great day for Mythic Friesians!
Vokeltsje D. awarded Second Premium Star and Champion of the Day! The judges commented on her beautiful, desirable modern body type and the suppleness of her movement.
Undara MF awarded Third Premium and placed first in her class! The judges commented on her powerful walk and good conformation, and suggested she be brought back after more training.
August 17, 2010 - Sadly, today we had to put down the matriarch of our herd, our old girl Ourenske H. She had been having increasing trouble with her hocks, and they finally gave out on her completely. She is buried on our property, under a big old tree with a view of the prairies. RIP Wren - you will be missed forever, but you will live on in our hearts.
May 8, 2010 - Well, it's not a horse related update, but it still seemed like something that should be posted here. On this day, Allison Carpenter (owner of Mythic Friesians) married Robert Thomas! It was a small casual ceremony and great fun was had by all! So if you notice a name change throughout our websites - from Allison Carpenter to Allison Thomas - now you know why!
April 12, 2010 - Random MF is sold! It is a bittersweet day, as we hate to see this boy leave - he is the Mythic Friesians baby who has been with us the longest. But, he's not going too far, so we'll be able to visit him at least!

We toured a number of farms and met a lot of approved stallions: Olrik 383, Jakob 302, Wikke 404, Doaitsen, Folkert, Monte, Jorn, Jense, Beintse, Jasper, and more. They were all as amazing as we had dreamed, and many of them were even more so! We also met some wonderful people from across North America and the Netherlands. A special thank you to Rick and Ellen Simonetti for making this trip such a wonderful experience!

October 21, 2006 - There is another new mare coming to Mythic Friesians! With the sale of our young mare Grace, we wanted to bring in another young mare to fill out our herd. Grace's bloodlines are incredible, and we wanted to find a mare that has equally impressive, though possibly different, lines. So with the help of our friends Rick and Ellen at Friesians 4 USA, we went hunting for just the right mare. And, as always, they found just what we wanted.
Announcing: Liskje fan 'e Sjongedyk!
Liskje is the daugher of newly named MODEL mare, Tsjikke fan 'e Sjongedyk, and is sired by the beautiful Leffert son Onne 376.

September 17, 2006 - Quantum MF has been sold! He is going to be living in Calgary, Alberta, and is now owned by Carrie Wagner. He will be a fantastic show horse and have the very best life any horse could ever want! We look forward to hearing how he does at his three year old keuring!
