FOR SALE: Zilver van WoppieWoppie
2015 Imported Friesian Mare
Zilver is a coming 6 year old mare, imported last year from Holland, who is by Hessel 480 out of WoppieWoppie van W (by Folkert 353). Zilver has a full sister a year behind that went ster this year at the keur in Holland. The only reason Zilver does not have her ster status is because the keur was cancelled this year in the US but she has all the characteristics of easily achieving that level. Zilver raised one foal and was a great mother. She started back into work this Fall under saddle and driving (both single and in pairs). Taking after her sire Hessel, Zilver is a tall, statuesque mare standing at 16’3” with a long, flowing mane and tail with a lot of feather. She has elegant, lofty movements and has an exceptionally powerful hind end that allows her to move up under herself well. Zilver has a super sweet temperament on the ground and perfect manners with grooming, farrier, hitching and unhitching, vet, clipping, bathing, and will stand all day to have her mane braided. Under saddle Zilver has a wonderful natural head carriage, is very level headed, and with just enough edge that keeps her attentive but well grounded. She is great on trail rides alone or with other horses. Overall, she has the potential to have a great career in harness or under saddle.
