A thunderous applause, tears, goose bumps…all conceivable emotions came to the surface when Jasper 366 made his appearance in the ring accompanied by sons, grandsons and even great-grandsons. It was a scene that made a really strong impression: Jasper with behind him Beart 411, Haitse 425 and Maeije 440, grandsons Pier 448, Bikkel 470, Epke 474 and Siert 499 and great-grandson Jouwe 485.

Meanwhile 25 years young and just a tiny bit more contained, Jasper 366 danced through the ring with Harrie van Middelaar holding the long lines. ‘For the last time’, speaker Bert de Ruiter indicated – clearly a bit moved himself too.

The Wijma Family

The Wijma Family thanked breeders, horsemen- and women, the Studbook and of course all his fans. ‘For us it´s a great honour to have been Jasper 366´s owners for all these 25 years. It´s truly a very emotional moment for us too.’
