During the Stallion Inspection Pieter Okkema from Witmarsum has been proclaimed Breeder of the Year 2016. The list of top breeders compiled by the KFPS was based on a sophisticated calculation scheme which included all breeding results of 2016. With a large margin, Pieter and Tiety Okkema took pride of place at the top of this list. From the 118 foals that saw the light of day in their yard up to this moment, 38 have received the Star predicate. In the past year two Crown mares and one Model mare were added to the list and filly Anna Femke van de Noeste was awarded a first premium. Also three of their breeding products have acquired the Sport predicate. The icing on the cake undoubtedly was the approval of Rommert 498 in early December. Rommert is still owned by the couple.
