My Norwegian draft :)

I live in Norway so I love our national breeds, I have had 2 fjords and in October last year I bought myself another norwegian draft horse, it's called a "Døl" pronounced "Doel". He is about 1 year now, and will be a pretty big guy.

Anyone else here have this type of breed? :)

Here are some pics of my little guy "Lillebror Lynet" translation: Littlebrother Lightning. Haha.

New born-6 months:

What a gorgeous horse, love the baby pics This isn't a breed I know at all, how big will he get, and will you ride him or is he for pulling?

Thanks!! :)

My hopes for him is getting him, don't know the word..hmmm. Approved to breed? A premium stud? You guys probably get the idea. If you look up "Stav hingstekåring" in google pictures you will see what I mean.

So he is going to keep his precious jewels until the age of 3 and then we will see what happens from there. These breeds are used for pretty much anything, allrounders..a lot like the fjord when it comes to use but with more fire and speed.

Mine will get pretty big, around 160cm at the withers, don't know how many hands that is. But he is a draft so he is going to be a alot of muscle! And his mane and feathers are already really thick and long so he is going to be a hairy guy. In the pictures he still has some of his winter coat but he is really charcoal black :)
