This is Anneke's Friesians' page for the Black Magic Friesian Performance Troupe. 



What is Black Magic?
Black Magic Friesian Performance Troupe was an initiative in spring 2010 of among other people Anneke van den IJssel/Anneke's Friesians to further pursue Friesian goals individually, yet at times together as Black Magic, leaving chapter restrictions behind. Meanwhile BMFPT has disbanded, however, we are very proud of all the many years of group work, the achievements and mementos of good times. 
Anneke's Friesians promotes, educates on, and enjoys sharing with others the Friesian breed with 100% dedication to the purebred KFPS/FHANA Friesian and continues to do so for over 3 decades now.
