Limburg Province of the Netherlands has a great variety of landscapes to offer. We found a beautiful place for our horses in forest landscape with additionally many blossom trees.

In the horse barn building we’ve got ample place for the stallions and some mares. Apart from our male horses, mares to be bred and those about to foal are kept here. There’s a kitchen and other conveniences, so we keep watch there at foaling time.

Lad's Black Buster has his stable at the corner of the building which we call the "Buster-cluster", as it's also the corner where his sons Leroy and Tango have their place.

Adjacent to the barn is an indoor riding hall and outdoor riding place available for us. A good place to start training with Tango, including preparing him to become a show-jumper!

Buster sniffs the air for more details! Spring is in the air!

There are separate meadows with electric fencing for the mares and the stallions as well as a sand-paddock with extra high and secure fencing. The latter is the right thing for our “jumping-horse” Buster’s Moonshine Tango!

Postmark Delight has a look at his mares in the meadow, with his first 2006 foal frolicking around.

What’s more, there is plenty of opportunity to go out riding the country lanes and forest tracks. Here, we can even ride out to the east and invade the German Reichswald!

Midnight Lunar in the mares meadow, heavy with pregnancy.
At times, even Midnight, this big gobbler, stops eating as her belly is so full already with her foal!

Claudia happens to have the same name as Midnight's former owner, and she likes Midnight as well as the Dandelions in the meadow of which she took one. In Dutch, these are called paardenbloem: "Horse-flower"

At another place at the west side of the river Maas we keep our other mares. Here, we’re also in forest region with a horse path network all around! Limburg, traditionally a province with mostly the heavy Dutch Draught horse, is a good place for other breeds as well! The heavy horses are of Belgian stock and they’re usually called “Belg”, there are still plenty of them around here, like hallmarks in the landscape.
