Maaike (Maurus 441) STB Ster
DOB: 20th July 2012
Maaike found herself at Greenbank Farm with her friend Noortje in April 2016. Her owners lost their grazing and needed somewhere for the girls to stay whilst they sorted out their personal affairs. Both Maaike and Noortje were very lean when they arrived and Noortje was not sound.
They spent the summer living as part of our herd and settled in well. For reasons only know to their owners they stopped paying their bills and eventually stopped responding to any attempts to make contact. An abandonment notice was served and the mares were subsequently legally transferred into our ownership.
We now have a responsibility for their welfare and will do the best we can for them. Maaike started her training in Jan 2017 and has progressed well over the years. In 2019 she took part in a couple of experience days and will hopefully be more involved in years to come. She will remain in the ownership of 'The Friesian Experience' for life.
So far Maaike is showing herself to be incredibly sweet, bold, brave, inquisitive and eager to learn. In 2018 we took her to the official Studbook Inspections where she not only gained entry to the KFPS Main studbook, she did so in style by gaining 2nd Premie Ster too. In 2020 she will again be inspected by the KFPS judges to see if she has progressed well enough to gain 1st Premie Ster. She will also do the IBOP performance test. To find out more about how she progresses your adoption of Maaike will include access to our 'Behind the Scenes' Facebook page.
Adopt or Sponsor one of our Friesian horses. We do everything we can to ensure our horses have the best care until the end of their days. With your help we can continue to do so for many years to come.
It costs over £140/day to keep our friesians, with bills not only for feed, bedding, haylage, farrier and vets but many others too in order to keep their facilities and equipment in good working order. By adopting or sponsoring one of our horses you are helping us to keep the horses in the best of condition and allowing us to keep opening our doors to people from all walks of life who want to be captivated by the friesian magic. Your donation will go towards the cost to care for all our friesians.
