Breeding & Friesians for Sale
Stewards of the Friesian Breed
The Friesian breed runs deep in the de Boer family where we foster an ongoing connection to these magnificent animals. Once a breed that was near extinction, we are committed to ensuring their longevity. Our horse's bloodlines are 100% Dutch, registered, and keuring verified. As a small family farm we breed in limited numbers with an emphasis on quality that ensures the finest traits of the traditional Friesian breed shine through.
Our Breeding Program
Breeding at Middlebrook is a labor of love. Foaling fewer Friesians a season, great care is taken to select from studs that we feel demonstrate the finest traits of the Friesian breed.
While Middlebrook is currently selling horses that are on hand at our farm, contact us if you are interested in purchasing a future foal. Middlebrook is open to selective breeding from our mares on a contract basis.
