BIRTHPLACE OF CHAMPIONS

William Shakespeare wrote: "When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk. He trots the air, the earth sings when he touches it. He is pure air and fire."

"            Flurry of Ca-Lyn"  1993 - 2011

 

I remember the first day that Flurry arrived.. In 1992, I had seen the Friesians at the Midwest Horse Fair and 'just had to have one'. My husband was adamant, "Why do you want another horse when you already have 18?"  But Friesians were in my blood and I researched breeders and make inquiries until I contacted, Case Van de Groef in New Jersey. I sold several antique buggies, and several horses to purchase Flurry. He arrived as a long weanling. As a youngster he already was taller than our mature Morgans. By three years old he was over 16 hands. We bred him to three of our Morgan mares his first year and  we had an outstanding foal crop the next spring. Every year after that was exceptional. Both he and Danny loved to go the Midwest Horse, we took them trail riding and in parades. Both Flurry and Danny also produced youngsters that have taken the dressage world by storm.

Flurry's sire was "Laes", the first Approved Friesian stallion to be imported into the United States in 1972.  Laes was one of the few Friesian stallions that represented the unique "Ritske" line, Family 22. Flurry looked every bit like his sire, with upright neck, short back, straight legs and powerful trot. Flurry did inherit his sire's 'recessive red gene', so he produced a number of chestnuts with flaxen manes and some true palominos.  All his foals had size and his unmistakable upright neck. Both Flurry and Danny were foundation stallions in the Friesian Sport Horse Registry.

We will always remember his curious and mischievous eye. He was a lovable and proud stallion, and is truly missed.
