The Koninklijke Vereniging “Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek” (KFPS) has registered Friesian horses since 1879. Today more than 40,000 horses are registered worldwide, and the studbook counts 13,000 official members. Outside the Netherlands these members are organised into their own national associations, which maintain close ties with the KFPS. Most Dutch members are associated with breeding societies, which organise a large number of activities each year, among which are their own breeder¡¯s days and various lecture evenings.

Hi , my name is Ien, I like art and I am creative on so many ways. I make paintings for more than 10 years, use my fantasy and paint realistic.

Walking in Forest and Nature Area, give me inspiration to Paint. I also like it to make photos about the little things I see in Nature.

I love Nature and go for long walks with my doggy Cathy. Making macro photos of flowers and Butterflies is my passion.
