Fairy Redstart
Redstart was more than 12 years old before he made his way from England to Holland, and therefore he has no premiums in Holland, but he has produced several good offspring in Holland at Duke table, before he sadly died..
Among these offspring is the lifetime approved stallion: My Number One of Duke Stable.

My Number One of Duke Stable
2. premie - Lifetime approved with a breeding index of 14,11
He has done very well, and so the majority of his offspring has recived their premiums, and he has several champion offspring and 1. premie daugthers.

Pamela of Duke Stable
1. premie KROON

Pamela is a great little mare with a very strong mother line.
Her mother, Craven Melinda, is a beautiful black mare out of almost purely marshwood breeding.
She is a 1. premie KROON mare, and has even got the PREFERENT title for the quality of her offspring.
She has no less than three 1. premie KROON daugthers. One of these dauther and ofcoruse Pamela's sister, Wysteria van ´t Minihoefke, is also both kleine maat champion and overall champion!
Wysteria's daughter Bo van ´t Minihoefke is doing even better than her mother.
She has become Kleine Maat Junior Champion as a yearling, plus classwinner at the large national show.
As a two year old, she was both Kleine Maat Junior Champion and Overall Junior Champion!
As a three year old she got her first 1.premie and was even Reserve Kleine Maat Champion, Overall Best 3 year old, and even Overall Reserve Champion, and once again she was classwinner at the large national show.
In 2012 she was classwinner at the international show in Holland, and was even on of the last 3 mares competing for "Best Small Size Mare". She also got her second 1. premie in 2012.
Finally in 2013 she got her third 1. premie, and is now eligeble . for her KROON, when she has her second foal.
Bo also has a dauther, Evi van ´t Minihoefke, who was also Kleine Maat Junior Champion and Overall National Junior Champion, so she is well on her way to follow in her mother's, grand mother's and great grand mother's impressive footsteps!

With the intent of starting a Shetland Breeding Society in China, a small number of selected shetland ponies have been exported from Holland. They are to lay the foundations of the chinese shetland pony breeding.
Untill they have enough ponies to start their own breed society, registration of the ponies will be done through the Dutch Studbook.
Two of Powers sisters (sired by Manolito) are among the exported ponies! They are seen below together with Pamela (on the left) just before leaving for China.
