Lolke 371 Sport (Oege 267 P x Reitse 272 P) Stam 15 Height 171 cm
Lolke is a tall, impressive stallion with a gentle character. He has a pleasing head, a beautiful expression and important attributes that are highly-valued by today’s standards: long neck, uphill conformation, long forearm and an exceptional walk. He is modern without sacrificing the extreme type that sets the Friesian apart from other sport horses. He has a jet black coat and masses of mane, tail and feathers.
Since obtaining his breeding license, Lolke has always been judged a 1st premie. He was popular with Dutch breeders prior to coming to America. In 2004 and 2005, he was second only to Jasper in number of mares serviced. He successfully competed in dressage shows in Holland, reaching Z–Level, and in 2008 he was awarded the coveted Sport Predicate. His last rider in Holland, Sylvia Walczak, rode Lolke in her colorful Marco Borsato “Rood (Red)” musical freestyle exhibitions.
A study of Lolke’s pedigree reveals why his success as a breeding stallion is not surprising, being the son and grandson of two preferent stallions, Oege 267 P and Reitse 272 P, one of the golden crosses in Friesian breeding. His motherline, Stam 15, is a performance line. Lolke has already sired 65 star mares, a Crown mare and 1 approved son. In October, 2008, Lolke daughter Dirkje Dopey van W. was judged Best-in-Show at the prestigious Esbeek Keuring out of 350 entries. Another Lolke daughter, Peaskeblom fan ‘e Krudikker, competed in the Eurobottle-Cup Finals in Marienheem in December, 2008, winning 1st place Dressage Mares with a total score of 75.63%. Felle 422, Lolke’s young son, is also making a name for himself in Holland. His daughter, Tieneke R., was champion of the 2009 Esbeek Jubilee Keuring. Felle has 2 sons selected for Central Proving in 2009.
