Anton is gone...

He touched the hearts of those who got to know him....
He had great admirers around the world through the social media.

Everybody with the interest in Friesians knows him.
And he will live on.

Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss, family Kelnhofer and Team Fenway.

This is how we wish to remember him, Anton 343 Sport Preferent

Nanna Salmi had a great privilege to work with Anton´s tail hair.
This bracelet Scirocco was made with his hair for an auction.

Anton was born on 18.6.1992. 
He reached the high age of 25 and was awarded with the predicates 
'Sport' and 'Preferent'. 

Those are  great achievements, but we believe his greatest achievement 
was just to exist and be what he was.

Sport Predicate
The Sport Predicate can be awarded to mares, gelding, and stallions that achieve good results in competitive sport. The Sport predicate can only be obtained based on results achieved at shows registered with the " United States Equestrian Federation, United States Dressage Federation, American Driving Society" or "Koninklijke Nederlands Hippische Sportfederatie”/Royal Dutch Equestrian Federation (KNHS). The scores registered with USEF, USDF, ADS, or KNHS determine qualification for the Sport predicate.

Preferent for Stallions
The Preferent predicate can be awarded to stallions that have a lasting, special influence on the breed. For consideration for Preferent the quality of the offspring will be tested for the breeding-goal characteristics. The lasting value of a stallion is evaluated based on the offspring produced that have determining roles in the breeding of Friesian horses such as Preferent mares, stallion dams and (based on offspring) approved sons.

Merry Christmas

Christmas time is the darkest time of the year and here
in Finland it´s especially dark. Between the sun rising and setting
it´s only five hours - even in the southern Finland. In Lapland
the sun doesn´t rise at all for a few months.

If the day is cloudy, you don´t get that much light during that time either.
Like all over the world, we have the tradition
of lighting our surroundings up. Candles and light chains indoors and 
outside are lit already in November.

This birch branch brings light and works as a Christmas tree as well.

Otto and Fanni, the office assistants.

We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Hyvää Joulua!
Felices Pasquas!
Merry Christmas!
Boas Festas!
God Jul!
Glædelig Jul!
Vrolijk Kerstfeest!
Joyeux Noel!
Froehliche Weihnachten!
Buone Feste Natalizie!

Feliz Navidad!
Boas Festas!

Advent Candelabrum in Equestrian Style

The first Advent starts the Christmas season. Advent has it´s meaning in the liturgical 
year, but even if you are weren´t that religious, there is this beautiful tradition: 
every Sunday one more candle is lit up as a sign of time, the Advent time, 
passing and Christmas getting closer and closer.

On the 4th Sunday, they are all lit.

It´s easy to make an Advent candelabrum by yourself, also fun with the kids! 
We have a different kind every year, this year we were inspired by 
the wine bottles and spray paints! 

All you need is four bottles, spray paint and decoration after your own taste. 
It´s not necessary to paint the bottles if you prefer them clear or
you have bottles with matt finish.

This year our Christmas is white and silver and this is our version of an
Advent candelabrum. We used a spray primer for glass and plastic
 befote painting them with the silver spray, but that is not compulsory.

Moss and the green apples bring some color and softness
to the arrangement.

In the midst of holiday celebrations, shopping, lights, decorations and joyful carols, 
it might be quite rewarding to have a peaceful, quiet moment with your dearest ones 
and enjoy the light of the candles.

Have a joyful Advent time!
