In fact our breeder's name is only Kirsten's, because she was the one who

her mother has the name.
The first Hesseldal was Kirsten's great-grandfather. His original name was Rasmus
Joergensen, but in the little parish where he lived were two Rasmus Joergensens. Because

He was a very dynamic person, a farmer, but most of all a tradesman. He went broke at

horses to Denmark, and he had several paintings of the big, heavy stallions
