We have bred from Brandus twice, our first was Tile van Withers Farm, who was our first Friesian Foal to be born, he received a 2nd premie as a foal and was rewarded 'Best foal for England and Ireland 2006'. Our second was a filly 'Anskje fan Withers Farm', who was one of a very few to receive a 1st premie as a foal in the United Kingdom. We believe that only 5% in the world receive this status.

Brandus is rated number one in the World for his offspring to be awarded with the Sport status.
