Breeders Information

Welcome to our Friesian Breeders page where you will find information, news and links to articles about breeding the Friesian horse.  All information is copywrite of FHAGBI and must not be copied or re-published without prior permission.

**IMPORTANT INFORMATION**

When considering breeding with your Friesian mare please do your research first.  Please take time to read through the KFPS Breeding Objectives (see below).  Despite what you may have been told there are currently NO FRIESIAN STALLIONS IN THE UK that have been approved for breeding.  If you use a stallion based in the UK or IRELAND your foal will not be eligible for entry to the main Friesian studbook.  A 'registered' stallion is NOT the same as an 'approved' stallion.  An 'approved' stallion will have a number after his name and will be in the Main Studbook whereas a 'registered' stallion will remain in the 'Foalbook' ('vb' veulenbook in dutch).  For further advice on breeding please contact tracey@blackhorses.co.uk

Breeding with Friesian stallions that are not approved is strongly discouraged by the KFPS - see article 'Breeding Goals' below.  The selection process for new stallions is one of the strictest in the world with a stallion being removed from the list if he does not produce consistently high quality offspring.  In relation to the stud fees charged by some UK friesian owners for their unapproved stallions, the approved stallions are not much more and the chance of producing a top quality foal are greatly improved.

The following page links and documents are all very worthwhile reading before deciding to breed with your mare:
