Tonjes 459 Sport is a KFPS-Approved Friesian Stallion who was born in 2006 and was bred by the Vanderploeg family of Ithaca, Michigan. He is sired by the “Great” Anton 343 Sport and his dam is Tjallina W., a Model Mare out of Ulke 338 Sport. Tonjes joined Kettle Creek Friesians in the fall of 2010 and was such a pleasure from the moment of his arrival. In 2012, our first foals by Tonjes arrived and they all received 1st and 2nd premies, including our Champion Colt Orion KCF. In October 2012, Tonjes made the long journey across the Atlantic to begin the European chapter of his breeding career.
Tonjes stands 164 cm (16.1 hh) and is growing the luxurious hair his sire is famous for. He has also inherited his father’s temperament and is quiet, gentle and exceedingly friendly. Tonjes is a very breed-typical stallion with a tremendous trot and a commanding presence. He was approved for breeding by the KFPS in California, USA in 2010. Tonjes earned his Sport predicate in 2013.
Currently, Tonjes is standing at stud at Stoeterij Bosksicht in Rijs, The Netherlands. Please visit www.sbhhorses.com for stud service information.
