KFPS Studbook stallion Beant 517 Sport AAA is going to continue his sport career abroad. Soon, this Hessel 480 offspring will exchange his box at Stal de Mersken in Siegerswoude for a stable in Mexico.

First foals

‘We have had fine times with Beant’, we hear from Age Okkema. ‘But at the end of the day it’s a business, so when somebody puts in a good offer that’s equivalent to a few years of standing stud, then obviously, we have to let them go.’ Age had the stallion with Studbook name Beant fan de Lege Geaën in co-ownership with his breeder Mr T. Fopma from Gauw. ‘The sale was completed in good mutual consultation. We are proud the stallion obtained his Sport predicate while still with us and at the same time managed to service a fair number of mares’, Age states. In the year behind us Beant 517 showed his first crop of foals.

Following Dedmer 519

The sale of the Big Friendly Giant, which is the stallion’s nickname at his current home, came about in cooperation with Ted Kop Jansen who himself sent his own Johnny Cash (Tsjalle 454) to the same Latin-American country in the previous year. Following in the footsteps of Alwin 469 son Dedmer 519 who made the same journey last year, Beant 517 is going to be the second stud stallion for Mexico.
