Metske was imported as a 7-month old weanling from Deroche, B.C., Canada in November of 2020. This full-papered filly has a long list of highly influential stallions and mares alike- many whom hold Sport, Elite, and Preferent predicates. The maternal lineage speaks volumes when it comes to mare performance, making her our ideal foundation mare for the breeding program. Metske is as quiet and sweet-natured as they come. She's very curious about new things and very little to no spook. Her calm, cool demeanor is accompanied by her energetic playfulness - as she loves to run around in the pasture with the other horses or is just as happy quietly grazing. She has delicate, feminine facial features with a soft coffee-colored eye and soft expression. While she has quite a bit of growing yet to do, she's undoubtedly maturing into a stunning black swan. And this girl can canter! Her ability to transition from the trademark Friesian trot into a ground-clearing canter is effortless and sustained. This aptitude will, no doubt, come highly useful in her upcoming ventures as we plan to nurture these natural talents of hers and present them at her finest.

In 2017, Elsa was picked up from her breeder in Illinois as a weanling filly back up north to Minnesota in the span of a day. And from that day onward, Elsa has proven herself to be an exceptionally quirky, curious, and personable horse. Even as a young filly, she was extremely loyal, quick to learn, and always gave it her best effort. She is the kind of horse that will follow you anywhere and loves to get attention - especially if you have a body brush in your hand! And her friendly, puppy-dog personality made her a favorite among barn visitors as she will "smile" for a treat. Saddle training/riding her was nothing short of a breeze and could be considered one of those horses who is "born trained ." Elsa does have more of a very energetic trot (like the Friesian) and a very nice, long, ground-covering stride in the canter. Straight, clean legs with good pastern angles. Big, rock hard, healthy hooves and has been barefoot her entire life. Her mane and tail are super thick and luxurious. She maintains her jet-black color almost all year and sun-bleaching on her is quite minimal. Although being half TWH, Elsa is not gaited.
