Breeding to Tietse 428 (Friesian)
3 Attachment(s)
Has anyone bred to the Friesian Stallion Tietse 428? I was recommended his frozen semen as good quality and absolutely love his conformation and movement. I would love to see pics of your foals and hear how they are doing if you have bred to him before!

I am a first time breeder and used a well recommended insemination specialist vet. A couple weeks ago my mare (I will post pics below) was inseminated--now I am currently waiting to test her. Fingers crossed, I get it on the first try! For anyone who is looking at frozen semen and AI, I can tell you it is far from cheap! Choosing the right vet is absolutely important though--my local vet didn't have the experience for me to dump the money into.

Here is my mare, she is half friesian/half AQHA Paint. Her sire was Nanne (17+hands and is now passed away), and her AQHA bloodlines go back to Doc Bar:

I know nothing about him but your mare is absolutely stunning! Good thing I'm not a thief and I have no place to keep her :)

Thank you! I am really excited to breed her :D

I own a Tietse foal and absolutely adore him, from the day he was born, he had the most lovable personality and at 1 year and 3 months he is quite a handsome and stunning colt.

I was just going to ask how you were able to breed to him, since he's an approved stallion and they could get in big trouble (i.e., lose their license by breeding to anything other than an approved mare). But I just read that his breeding license was revoked in January of 2012. I quote, "The stud book stallions Tietse 428 Sport (Reyert 337 x Oepke 266) and Tsjabring 429 Sport (Brandus 345 Sport x Tjimme 275) no longer have a breeding license. The offspring of these two stallions were unconvincing."
Doesn't mean they weren't beautiful foals, just means there weren't enough of them with the desired traits to improve upon the breed. It's hard to know what the foal will look like, especially with the quarter horse blood.

Glad Tietse is still making a living and got to keep his "crown jewels!" Lol! :lol:

For pictures of purebred Tietse foals, you might google his name under the Horses for Sale on the FHANA website. I'm sure there are a few for sale that would have good pictures. :)

Yep, I looked him up too, Turkish.

No FHANA approved stallion can outcross to non-Friesian mares, but since his breeding rights were revoked I guess his owner decided to open him up to all comers. With a stud fee of $1,800 I'm sure they're getting everyone and anyone who wants to breed to a 'magickal' Friesian.

His owner needs to quit stating he's 'FHANA approved' though, because he no longer is.

His license to reproduce (FPS studbook, FHANA )has been revoked since Jan 2013. I own a full bred Friesian foal born May 2012 (last Studbook foaling year for Tietse 2012). I also know Tietse's owner, Susan, who lives about 8 minutes away from me. She is still selling semen at a lowered price.

Not according to the FHANA website. Their report is dated January of 2012. If you have a 2012 foal, Tietse was still approved in 2011 when the mare was bred so the foal should be eligible to attend a keuring and get a rating.

I personally don't have a dog in this fight because while I think Friesians are lovely horses, they don't interest me in the slightest. It's just that his owner is still claiming he's FHANA approved when he's not, and that's misleading as well as dishonest.

Yes my foal is registered with the FHANA main studbook as he was born May 25, 2012, my mistake, it was revoked Jan 2012. I am not sure what she is claiming in terms of his approval, but his foals are gorgeous. I don't know how to post pics of my foal, on here cause I am new, but if you go to excalibur friesians, it is her webpage, and his semen is still on sale.
