"Let us help make your dreams come true!"

Koning Gradus was born August 15th, 2011.  He was born HUGE! We named him Koning Gradus in honor of his beloved sire Gradus 356 who passed away July 2011, "Koning" means King in Dutch.  He is Gradus 356's last foal, he is very special, he is a spitting image of his sire!

Koning Gradus is a super sweet in your pocket colt. He loves people and attention. He has been handled since birth, he loves water and getting a bath.

We took Koning Gradus to the 2011 FHANA/KFPS Keuring in Del Mar, CA, he was 7 weeks old and recieved a 3rd primie only half a point way from 2nd premie! He was Reserve Champion colt! We are so proud of our boy!! We can't wait to see what his future will bring and look foward to watching him grow!

Gradus 356 is a "old type", baroque style Friesian who is fine in harness. He was a driving champion in the Netherlands. He is permanently approved on offspring, but does not have a lot of offspring in the US which makes his more bloodline even more desirable.  Koning Gradus is the last foal from Gradus 356. We had the great previlage of knowing Gradus 356 very well, he was a bright loving stallion with tons of chrisma and personility!   He has great movements with both power and grace! He was a very elegant stallion.

Koning’s Damsire Otte 375 combined excellent performance, remarkable quality and stellar character. In 2004, Otte 375 was given the title of Ride and Drive Champion in The Netherlands. In December 2002 he earned the title Grand Champion in The Netherlands' Z1 Dressage Level. His spacious trot with superior extension has enabled him to reach such high levels in Dressage. He received the top score overall in the Central Stallion Testing in Drachten 2000 with score of 84.4, with additional remarks on his outstanding powerful movement with extraordinary air time. That is the highest score recorded at that event at the time. He sired over 60% first and second premium foals.
