Hylke ut 'e Mieden

I don't think I've ever posted Hylke here before. In September I went to Wisconsin for a Friesian keuring. One of Keegan's fans happened to live in the area and was a Friesian owner herself.

So I traveled to her barn to do Hylke's first photo shoot with her.

Here are some of those photos. Expect many more from this guy as he'll be moving down here with me and Keegan's owner Emily soon.

I am going to copy and paste some little tidbits about Hylke here from his owners website. He's got a nice history.



Hylke is a magnificent 1994 model Ster friesian gelding out of Olof, imported from Holland in 2000. Hylke has a great history; he was hand chosen and owned by the Queen of Holland, Queen Beatrix, to be part of her 8-horse friesian team that pulls her Golden Carriage. Hylke, however, did not grow as tall as the Queen's liking, so he was sold.

(Queen Beatrix' Royal Carriage; The Hague)


Hylke proceeded to become a Premier Champion driving horse; a 7-time Champion Sjees Driving Horse in his home town of Friesland! He was shown through to the final round of stallion testing in Holland in 1998, and he was the featured driving horse at the 2000 Friesian Extravaganza evening performance in Reno, NV!


The video link above features Hylke in the final round of Stallion Testing in Holland, a clip of when he was first imported in the US in 2000, and an awesome clip of him under harness at the 2000 Friesian Extravaganza in Reno!

Onto some photos!













Even at fifteen, he's still got the moves!

If you watch the video you can hear several people say his name.

It's "Hill-Kuh".

It's a traditional name. If I ever get the Friesian colt I want I'll name him a traditional name too.

The video is nice. Shows him at the end as the featured driving horse for a FHANA convention in 2000. He looked AMAZING.

Hopefully between Emily and I we will get him looking like that again for show season.
