Versatile, Hard Working, People Loving Norwegian Fjords
Fjords were in our destiny before we even knew very much about the breed. Katherine has had horses since she was 8 years old. Her first being a grade pony named 'Sunshine" Sunshine was a brown dun with a flaxen mane- yes very close to looking like a red fjord and possibly Welsh cross but was only 12.1 hands high and we didn't have any history on her. She was bombproof and I could do anything on her- arena work, western games and she was awesome at trail- climbing, swimming, open fields, jumping small logs- anything I wanted. I most rode her trail. We also raced the train every afternoon when it was coming on the peninsula. I have many fond memories of Sunshine.
Then I bred her Arabian and then got Arabians (including a black Crabbet/Polish bred mare!) which I bred and got a gelding from. My husband married into the horses. Besides Arabians we also had a Paint breeding stock mare that we bred a couple times. Then horses took the back burner while I bred and showed dairy goats.
Fast forward to 2009 and Fjords were the topic of interest between Jerry and I as they became affordable after the economic crash of 2008. Jerry's father immigrated from Norway in 1905 and I have inherited Norwegian from my father's side of the family. So, we introduce our Fjords...
