Sjouke fan de Groenbank (b. 7 July 2013)
Sjoukje is Femma’s fourth daughter, and the second daughter we’ve bred from the stallion Sake449. Ischka is the first one, making Sjoukje Ischka’s full sister. Femma had a very traumatic time giving birth to Sjoukje. We were in great fear of losing her when she suffered a uterine prolapse giving birth. Fortunately with the amazing help and dedication of our vet, Jess Gillon (from Frame, Swift & Partners), Femma has pulled through.
Sjoukje spends her days in a field with her sisters Jolanda and Ineka, together with several other horses. She’s a very cheeky filly, not afraid of anything and she’s always the first to come up to you when you go into the field. Trying to chew your shoes or whatever else she can, she always gets most of the attention, which she loves. She’ll have a few more years to grow and then we’ll take her to the annual FHAGBI inspections to get graded.
