The 2018-approved Teun 505 (Bartele 472) can boast a pedigree to lick your fingers. Descending from the successful Namke line of pedigree 50 with the triple Preferent Setske F. (Feitse 293) for a granddam, this novice brings a wealth of potential quality.
Foundation dam of Teun 505’s dam line is the 1928-born Marianne Hulpboek (subsidiary section, ed.) Preferent (Danilo 137). Marianne’s daughter which we find in Teun 505’s dam line is Manda Model Preferent (Arend 131). Her daughter Anke Star Preferent (Obscurant 150) brought Namk Model Preferent (Geert 184), born in 1953. She was the 1957 Central Inspection Champion. Namk is the dam of Namke Model Preferent (Nuttert).
In eighteen years of active breeding this Crown jewel Namke (1964) has given sixteen foals. Son Walter 282 got as far as preliminary approval and five of her daughters rose to Preferent. One of these is Daphne Star Preferent (Naen 264), the dam of Olcha Model Preferent Performance (Feitse 293) and granddam of Els F.T. (Fabe 348), Gonda F.T. Model Preferent (Onne 376) and Sape 381 (Fabe 348).

Setske F.

Olcha’s half sister Kingke Model Preferent (Dagho 247) appears in Teun 505’s dam line. The first time Kingke was paired to Naen 264 which resulted in the birth of Barteld 292. In 1989 Kingke gave the triple Preferent Setske F. Star Performance (Feitse 293) who is dam to Beart 411 (Jasper 366) and granddam of Teun 505. Nanne Osinga’s successful breeding stud ‘fan Lutke Peinjum’ was founded on this mare. When Osinga purchased Setske she was pregnant by Melle 311. This combination produced the by now double Preferent Ealfrou fan Lutke Peinjum Star Performance, a half sister of Beart 411.
The reliable broodmare Setske F. brought sixteen offspring: Beart 411, a Model mare, eleven Star mares and three Foalbook stallions. Four of her offspring are Sport and three are Preferent. Setske F. died in 2009 at the age of nineteen after suffering a colic attack. Her daughter and Sport mare Tjalda fan Lutke Peinjum Model Preferent Performance (Fabe 348) is granddam to Teun 505.
One of the offspring Osinga bred from Tjalda is Richt fan Lutke Peinjum Star (Rindert 406) who is Teun 505’s dam. She became Star at the age of four. In 2014 Bert Veldhuizen bred Teun 505 from this mare. Bert Veldhuizen has a preference for horses with loads of show driving aptitude like Onne 376. Hence, Richt’s first foal therefore is by Onne 376: Olbert van Hilberalti. This Star stallion took part in the Central Examination in 2015. Her second foal is a Star mare by Onne 376. In 2014 Teunis van Hilberalti was born, later known as Teun 505.
When a foal, Teun 505 came to Tsjalling de Boer’s foal-raising yard who by now, has acquired full ownership. In 2017 Teun 505 participated in the Central Examination but he had to leave prematurely. ‘At that time he wasn’t fit so we were allowed to return the next year which has worked out really well.’

Exceptionally good canter

During the Central Examination Teun 505 proved to be a multitalented horse with high scores for the riding test (83,5), driving test (83,5) as well as for show driving (85,5). According to his assessment report he is a stallion with a fine model, great breed expression and abundant feathers. Longlined with very good movement technique and flexion in the joints. A stallion with an extraordinarily good canter. In show driving he displays lots of ‘go’ and moves with great technique in an uphill frame.
According to Harrie Draaijer, Head of the Stallion Inspection Committee, Teun 505 is expected to enhance model, movement technique, mentality and trainability in breeding. Because of his all-round profile he can be widely used in the mare population.
