Mewes 438 has died at the Aveleda Friesian Stud in Potchefstroom, South Africa, at the age of seventeen. The son of Teeuwis 389 and Oekje-Vrouwkje (Oege 267) has just under 700 stud services to his name and has given one Model mare: Earth Angel T.C.B. Model AA (damsire Sierk 326).

From pedigree 82

Mewes 438 was born as Meneer-Vrouwkje out of the Star Preferent Oekje-Vrouwkje A (Oege 267 x Leffert 306) from pedigree 82 at Gert-Jan van der Linden’s yard in Terwispel, in 2004. Mewes 438 was approved at the age of three and fulfilled his stud services at, among others, Stud Station Gaasterland. After becoming Champion of the Older Stallions at the 2017 Stallion Inspection he was sold off to South Africa.
So far Mewes 438 has no approved sons, but with his 3-year-old offspring Gouke fan Wettersicht (damsire Tsjalle 454), owned by Gert van Dijkhuizen and Margriet Griffioen, he still has an iron in the fire for the upcoming Presentation Days.
