                                                   THE TEAM

                                                   Nagus is a Polish horse

                                      Edwin is a Silesian horse

         Spencer is a Morgan horse. Youngest member our brave team.

Morgans were a favored mount by cavalry soldiers in the Civil War. They were sensible under fire. They could march tirelessly all day. They maintained their condition on unpredictable rations. And they were loyal to their riders in all circumstances. 

                           Goitske and Ymke are Friesian horses. 

The breed was developed in the province of Friesland in the northern Netherlands, where there is evidence of thousands of years of horse populations, and this breed is said to have descended from the primitive Forest Horse. The Romans used the breed for riding. It is also said that Romans took Friesian horses to England, where the breed influenced the Shire, Clydesdale, Fell and Dales. Once thought to be ugly, this northern-European-mainland breed is now considered among the most beautiful of horses. "Black is [now indeed] beautiful."

Friesians were used in medieval times to carry knights to battle. In the 12th and 13th centuries, some eastern horses of crusaders were mated with Friesian stock. Sometime after the Middle Ages came to an end, the Friesian breed was dying out. Soon there was only two left, fortunately male and female. They were carefuly captured and bred in an attempt to bring back the breed. During the 16th and 17th centuries, when there was less demand for heavy war horses as battle arms changed and especially when Spanish forces occupied The Netherlands during the Eighty Years' War, Andalusian blood was added to lighten the breed in order to lighten its weight and thereby render it more suitable (in terms of less food intake and waste output) for work as a more urban carriage horse. Friesians were also used by riding schools in France and Spain for high-school dressage, and they remain a student-favored breed to this day for their gentle temperaments and proud dark beauty.

The breed was especially popular in the 18th and 19th centuries, when they were not only in demand as harness horses and for agricultural work, but also for the trotting races then so popular. The Friesian was used as foundation stock for breeds such as the Orlov Trotter, the Norfolk Trotter (ancestor of the Hackney), and the Morgan.

In the 1800s the Friesian was bred to be lighter and faster for trotting, however this led to what some owners and breeders regarded as an inferior stock, so a sort of revolt and call for a return to pureblood stock took place by the end of the century.

The Friesian stud registry book, Friesch Paarden Stamboek (FPS) was founded in 1879 by a group of Dutch farmers dedicated to preserving the breed. Friesians had become popular for crossbreeding due to their fantastic trot, presence, and color, and as a result, Friesian "purity" was severely threatened. The "Royal Society Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek" was founded to protect and promote the breed's bloodline. Friesian horse populations then dwindled in the early 20th century partly due to displacement by petroleum-powered farm equipment and passenger vehicles. Due to fuel rationing during World War II the Freisian's farm and carriage use was revived, saving the breed long enough for both its population and popularity to rebound.
