First, we look back at the year 2020. During the autumn examination, three stallions were registered with excellent results. Three three-year-old high-quality harness horse stallions were registered, two chestnuts and one grey. The stallion Macho managed to get the highest score ever. Macho is a son of Indiana, who is no longer available for breeding, and is out of Emone, a ster daughter of Unieko. This is the damlinewith which harness horse breeder Lammert Hollander from Gieten was very successful with. Macho scored six times a 9.5 and twice a 9. Klaas Buist from Nuis and Harold Dekker from Oosterwolde presented the stallion at the inspection but after the inspection Macho was sold to William Duffy from Ashby, USA . The stallion is available for breeding at Gebr. van Manen in Ede. The stallion was also presented by Robbie van Dijk recently at the film day in Ermelo.
