Our three mares are the very heart of Happy Now Farm. The farm revolves around Yldau, Zowie and Wietske. These three beauties are the basis of our breeding program. Only FPS approved stallions are used to insure the integrity of the Friesian breed. Breeding records are carefully maintained so we always have a mare’s medical history at our fingertips. The utmost care is taken to relieve our mares of stress during conception, gestation, foaling, nursing, and weaning. That’s why these mares and their babies are Happy Now!

Yldau is always the Star of the Show! She’s the Alpha Mare with attitude, style, and the ultimate in elegance. The seventh generation of Star mares, Yldau trains her offsping to be as magnificent as she is. She turns heads – horses and humans! Yldau was the Champion Mare at the 2005 FPS Inspection in West Allis,Wisconsin. She has earned blue ribbons in several dressage competitions. She also finds time to do trail rides, parades and driving. And in between all this, she runs the farm!

Zowie van het Oosterland Star

Status:  Star Mare
Sire:  Sjaard 320
Dam:  Itske van het Oosterland
Dam's Sire:  Jakob 302
Foaled:  May 5, 1999

Our Zowie has had two offspring show for studbook and both were made Star. We still have her babies, Ziglar and Colonel, in the barn and we feel very good about their Star qualities as they were both 1st premium foals. This mare throws great babies. She’s tall, elegant and a real sweetheart to work with. She loves trail rides or winter sleigh rides and she’s a caring, nurturing mother. Her beautiful movement and long, flowing mane have made her the focus of much of our advertising. She seems to pass all her best traits right through to her foals.

Wietske is a beautiful baroque mare. She has an absolutely incredibly thick black mane. Her head is very fine featured. She gets along well with everyone in the stable, and has a very easygoing attitude, but to ride her cantering across the fields is to feel her awesome power. Wietske has competed in dressage and has performed in parades. She has been the horse we trusted to teach our grandchildren to ride.
