The awe-inspiring Friesian stallion*Tjeerd was imported into Washington State from the Netherlands in the 1980s. *Tjeert sired many excellent Friesian sons and daughters that were purchased across North America. His many purebred Friesian and half-Friesian grandchildren excel in today's demanding Friesian driving, riding, and dressage competitions. We will always remember how incredibly beautiful this Friesian stallion was.
