LEANDRA FRIESIANS is a small Friesian BREEDING AND FOALING FACILTY located in the rolling hills of central Kentucky. We offer the ultimate in mare care prior to foaling and our specialty is the training we give to the babies while they are in our care. Each baby is worked with on a daily basis to assure that he/she is comfortable with grooming, leading, loading, clipping, has learned to respect the handler and has been introduced to many new experiences. Our facility offers extra large foaling stalls (12 X 25) with daily turnout in lush pastures and loving attention to your foals while they are in our care. We want each to become a "good citizen" before going off to his new home and career. We purposely have kept our operation small in order to offer real "hands on" care each day. In breeding horses, bigger is not always better!
Our breeding program boasts three outstanding and uniquely bred Friesian mares. They offer a diversity of bloodlines and have a proven record of producing outstanding foals. Finding a good match and a loving home for our babies is of paramount concern. We pride ourselves on following up to assure that the buyer is more than satisfied with the purchase. We can offer many references from buyers whose babies got their start at our facility. We pride ourselves on making "good citizens" of babies that we work with. The success of our babies as they enter their careers can attest to the value of our program. We are proud to see Leandra Friesian horses competing in dressage and other disciplines with great success and versatility.
We have been blessed with many wonderful new friends in the Friesian world through the sales of our horses and we encourage our buyers to stay in touch and to share photos of their baby's development.
Our goal is to produce the best foals possible....lovely conformation, good movement, vitality, excellent trainabilty and a good work ethic. Prospective buyers are encouraged to spend time with each baby to get a feel for his/her personality and to participate in the training that the baby is learning at that particular time.
In 2012 our small farm made the KFPS (Dutch Registry) list of top 50 Friesian breeders worldwide. Our three first premium babies (3 out of 3) and the fact that Danae fan Leandra earned her ster predicate this year helped to put us on this list. Since this award is based solely upon points earned by premiums, the fact that we were able to make this list with only three breeding mares is particularly gratifying. Yes, I am very proud of my "girls"!!! You can see the results by clicking here.
